Free Department Area Calculator

From the Autodesk App Store:


This app allows the summarizing of areas for rooms that belong to one department. The summed area is then written back to rooms into the desired parameter. Because of this, it is possible to show in plans the areas of departments with standard Autodesk® Revit® tags. Values are updated when the script is restarted. Rooms are grouped by the same values of the desired parameter.

  1. Group rooms that belong to the same department by writing the same value into the desired parameter. For instance, write “Apartment 01” into the “Department” parameter.
  2. Run script. In “Group by:” choose Department parameter. In “Write to:” choose your custom parameter, for instance, “Department Area”. Click on “OK”.
  3. Areas of Departments will be calculated and written to each room into the “Department Area” parameter.
  4. You can create a room tag and use it to tag one of the rooms in order to show on plans the areas of departments.
