Working with Autodesk Revit is not only about 3D modeling and visualization. The biggest, most hidden and most important part of your Revit model is data. And even more important is making your model containing the right data. The model needs to get as intelligent and readable as possible. Your model needs to be "raised" like a child. Therefore it's important to take the right decisions in your "raising plan".
When it comes to quantification of the structural part of your building, it's important to be able to extract the right data (volume, area, weight, length…) from the Revit model. Although parameters like "Area" and "Volume" are calculated automatically, you need to make the Revit model react in a specific way to represent the real values. "Do I want my beams to be quantified between columns, or as full length on top of the columns?" This is one of the questions you will get.
In the whitepaper "Structural Modelling Requirements: Modelling meets Quantification", you will find a lot of possible solutions for structural elements and their connection with other elements. This document will help you to make the right decisions, or it could be used to add to your BIM protocol to communicate your decisions to other stakeholders.
