Hello and Welcome to the Discussion!


What you are looking for seems a bit more detailed then what Revit does out of the box...

The steel for the columns - yes you can get that from a material takeoff.


As for how MANY bricks.... Well you can get the area of the wall - and if you know the area of one brick - you could do a formula and run the calculation.. But I would only take it as a rough estimate.


Not sure on the bags of cement... Unless you can think of a way to create a formula... That would be the only way - and again I would only use it as a rough estimate...



If this helped solve your issue - remember to 'accept as solution' to help other find answers!
You can't think AutoCAD and run Revit.
