Surface related properties

Dear Revit Team


Here's a Revit-related idea:

We think it would be helpful, if we could specify properties that are linked to the surfaces of geometric elements:

For example:

For a simple rectangular concrete slab, you have 6 surfaces, each surface with individual properties:

bottom: concrete cover, formwork quality

sides: concrete cover, formwork quality, surface treatment (cold joint...)

top: concrte cover, surface treamtment (raked, curing product...)

We're aware that you could specify these properties within the slab element, however, at the end of the day we  need information linked to a specific surface:

- m2 of formwork of type XY

- show me all elements with raked surface

- ensure that we have a minimum of 55mm for all external surfaces


Thanks for considering
