Scheduling Inequity for Ducts

Una de las muchas utilidades que tienen las tablas es poder generar mediciones. Es habitual generar un estado de mediciones utilizando las plantas del edificio como capítulos del presupuesto, sin embargo, Revit no nos ofrece esta posibilidad...Justo cuando estábamos buscando una posible solución leemos el post que hay más abajo.

De momento damos esta batalla por perdida y si es una necesidad imperiosa la de realizar mediciones por plantas debemos utilizar un plug-in, Magic BC3, resultado de la colaboración entre A3D y Felipe de Abajo, parece la mejor solución.


If you examine the properties of a duct you'll see a parameter called "Reference Level". Do the same for a Duct Fitting and you get a parameter called "Level".

If you choose to create a schedule of ducts or duct fittings a fairly obvious way to sort them is by the level or floor they are related to. Oddly enough there is no access to either Reference Level or Level. Some other elements have "Associated Level" offered as a valid schedule field, not ducts or duct fittings...not duct systems either.

Revit has been plagued with seemingly arbitrary restrictions on what can appear in a schedule from the beginning. For ducts I can see where a riser that spans several floors might not have a very meaningful "reference level" value but it does have one, so I think it ought to show up in a schedule. In fact I frequently realize that a duct references the wrong level because I placed it in a 3D view, particularly risers. If that showed up in a schedule I'd have another chance to catch it and adjust it accordingly.

In my over-simplifying opinion, if a Revit element has a parameter value in the properties palette it ought to be able to show up in a schedule too.

Esperamos que los compañeros de A3D desarrollen una herramienta parecida a Magic BC3, resultado de la colaboración con Felipe de Abajo, y nos dé la posibilidad de hacer las mediciones de las tuberias y conductos por planta.
