Hi there.
I am a student and have just started using ArchiCAD a few months ago. I am trying to figure out a way to estimate formwork quantity (sqm) needed. I am thinking about using different priority concrete for each element type of the construction (depending on the timeline of the construction) and using surface interactive schedules, but on my first few tries it seems to give wrong results.

So I am asking what kind of workflow are you using for estimating concrete formwork?

I have also seen a Korean firm has an add-on specially made for this task, but don't know where to get it as they are not replying to my mails and I don't understand Korean haha. Anyway here is the link to their youtube video:

Thank you very much, any input given is more than welcome :)
