Get the Area of a Ramp From Revit Using DynamoBIM

If you ever need the "top" area of a ramp then you are in luck. This blog post will show you how to do it using Dynamobim. Note that you are not able to extract the area from a ramp using just Revit... especially if the ramp is curved....

Its easy and it only takes 4 nodes.
Follow the steps below in the image to get the top area of a Ramp element in Revit.

The method above only gets the top area of a ramp however if you want to get the "SIDE AREA" of a ramp for form-work calculations then simply get the other indexes on Node 3. 
I hope this helps.

Is there a way to integrate the area results into a Revit Schedule?
