Calculate volume of Air duct


I have a strange question on a strange request from a client…

Client needs to know the volume of the air in the duct system for leek proof test.

For “straight” duct I can easily export duct system to excel and do my calculs in it but problem comes with the elbows and the reductions.

Questions are:

-Does Revit have possibilities for calculating the volume of air ducts already implemented in the app itself? I couldn’t find it myself.

-Did someone of you already tried to do a script for something similar in Dynamo?

Thanks for comments. Maybe I will find more elegant solutions if I share my thoughts…

See below:

Duct Volume.dyn (8.7 KB)

You can get the geometry from each of the elements and extract their solids, from which their volumes can be directly calculated.

That is an excellent idea. Ill give it a try and be back with feedback …
