Issue

You want to ensure a proper DWF export from Revit to allow property information to import correctly into QTO.

Solution

In order for QTO calculations to function properly, the source DWF file must contain specific properties. To include these properties in your export:
  1. Open your model in Revit.
  2. Click the Revit Button > Export > DWF and the DWF Export Settings window will display.
  3. In the Export: drop-down field, select "In Session view/Sheet Set".
  4. In the Show in List: drop-down field, select the appropriate sort option to view your project sheets.
  5. Check the boxes of the sheets to include.
  6. Access the DWF Properties tab.
  7. Ensure the “Element properties” box is checked.
  8. Ensure the “Rooms and Areas in a separate boundary layer” box is checked.
  9. Click “Export”.
  10. Select a path and enter a filename.
  11. Click the Files of type drop-down arrow and select DWF.
  12. Click “Export”.
