    Wall Material take off-Schedule of Heights

    I have scheduled a Wall Material Takeoff.
    The external wall is a rainscreen system and joined the floor slabs at multiple levels to cut the drywall and framing.
    When I review the schedule the drywall gives the full height of the external wall buildup (unconnected height) rather than from slab floor to slab soffit on a floor by floor basis.
    Is there a way to schedule internal height for the drywall plasterboard?

    Afraid not, joins are (mostly) graphic - and <Unconnected Height> a (mostly) unreliable property.

    ...which is why (amongst other reasons) why many have taken to modelling walls in separate runs - which may or may not suit your purposes.

    Note, even if you do go the route of multiple walls (over Revit's standard compound method) takeoff is still not an exact science.
