CALCULATE FORMWORK AREA IN REVIT

Welcome to Alpha BIM!

An important task in construction is Quantity Takeoff. And this is also a fairly time-consuming work of Quantity Surveyor.

For the traditional way, the engineer will rely on AutoCAD drawings to calculate the components according to formulas and use Excel files to synthesize volumes.

Today, with the development of construction technology, we will take advantage of the Revit model to quantity takeoff faster.

In this article, I will show you how to use one of Alpha BIM Soft's coolest plugin to calculate the speed of the Formwork Area from the 3D Revit model.

This plugin has been Alpha BIM through many large and high-rise constructions of big contractors in Vietnam, such as Ricons, Coteccons, Hoa Binh, An Phong, Tan Ky, SC5, ... to increase speed and easily control the calculated results. 

Let's go with steps below!

Step 1: Build Revit Model

You can use the plugins Modeling from AutoCAD to save your time on this task.

Step 2: Auto Join

Join Revit model according to your specified quantity takeoff.

The Auto Join plugin of Alpha BIM can help you Join quickly and control the priority when Join model.
