Scheduling Areas of Filled Regions: Ideate BIMLink Can Do That!

Question: Is it possible to schedule the ‘Area’ property of filled regions in Revit?

Answer: Not without using Ideate BIMLink!

Ideate BIMLink very easily allows you to extract the area information of filled regions into a Microsoft Excel spread sheet that can be used for a variety of tasks such as representing different material areas on site plans, to trace shaded areas on a façade through the day and year to derive shading percentages for a PV calculator, to document repair and replacement areas on building elevations of a renovation or historic preservation projects, basically any task requiring quick calculation of custom building areas.
