While calculating formwork quantities, we have found that bimtool-Form work calculate all four sides of beam element. Practically it must have to consider only two sides which are parallel to length, except in case of cantilever beam.
Also staircase formwork qty. not calculated by this tool.
If any one have solution please co-operate.

Hey bhushan,
the BiMTOOLS command Formwork Area calculates the formwork area of the sides considers bordering components. If there is just the beam all four sides are calculated in the parameter SOFiSTiK_FormworkArea_Side. But if there is a wall this side is not considered as you can see in the picture below. :D Isn't that the right result you need?
