    IFC Export Problems

    Hi fhunt, There could be many reasons to not get all objects exported. Please, check first that your extrudes/cubes all have fill, then check your IFC Data - AFAIU, for this kind of work you should use IfcBuildingElementProxy for most of your landmark objects. Also, check that the classes are visible and "Export Visible Only" option is OFF. These objects usually are part of the Site (not building or building story), so map their layer to "Site", not to a story and check "Export Site Model" option. Regards, Mihail Rizov

    IFC Interoperability With Revit

    Hi Acip79, We'll need the file (and Revit version) to be able to help you. Regards, Mihail Rizov

    Curtain Walling and IFC Problem

    Thank you for pointing us to this problem! It is caused in the process of curtain wall's decomposition to parts - plates (IfcPlate) and frames (IfcMember) - currently, only geometry attributes are read. We are working on this issue. Thanks and Regards, Mihail Rizov

    IFC MISSING

    Hi Clem, I don't know what kind a "convention" is this, but this is the standard that is used in all software packages. Sorry, there is no "IFC CEILING" ;) (This site is the place where all IFC versions - 2x2, 2x3, IFC4, alpha, beta, draft, candidate release, addendum, TC - are published) Regards, Mihail Rizov

    IFC MISSING

    Hi Clem, You should use IfcBuildingStorey, IfcRailing and IfcCovering (with field PredefinedType set to CEILING). For more details, please see: http://www.buildingsmart-tech.org/ifc/IFC2x3/TC1/html/ifcproductextension/lexical/ifcbuildingstorey.htm http://www.buildingsmart-tech.org/ifc/IFC2x3/TC1/html/ifcsharedbldgelements/lexical/ifcrailing.htm http://www.buildingsmart-tech.org/ifc/IFC2x3/TC1/html/ifcproductextension/lexical/ifccovering.htm Regards, Mihail Rizov

    Wall end cap to IFC

    Hi Ida, The IFC designation is primarily defined from the purpose of the objects and that's why in IFC this should be a covering. Regards, Mihail Rizov

    Ceiling grid to IFC

    Hi Ida, AFAIU, you want 2 things: - to be able to control the thickness - enhancing Ceiling Grid tool, as currently the thickness is always 1"; - to be able to export in IFC this as separate coverings - one covering is one tile, like 1200 x 600; If this is what you want - you should enter 2 enhance requests. The second one depends more on me and it is not that hard to achieve. Regards, Mihail Rizov

    Wall end cap to IFC

    Hi Ida, By default, wall end caps are exported as coverings, because this is their primary role. If you want to change that - please, use IFC Data Mapping, remove IfcCovering and add the object that you want to be exported. Regards, Mihail Rizov

    Finding IFC objects by "tag"

    @David Poiron You can use worksheets to list all tags and then use the rows to get to/select the desired objects. Regards, Mihail Rizov

    IFC export of a 16 story building takes over 45mins

    Hi ptoner, If you want to speedup your IFC Export - please, switch to OpenGL and zoom in close to the building, so that nothing from the building is visible. Regards, Mihail RIzov

    IFC export, grid axis, text

    Hi Ida, Grids: Grid Bubble/Polar/Rectangular objects are automatically exported to IFC. If you need something more special (like 3-axis grid or non-ordered tags), you can use a custom solution - group with IfcGrid attached, and inside lines with IfcGridAxis (where AxisTag is prefixed by 'U','V' or 'W', to denote which list this axis belongs to - UAxes, VAxes or WAxes) - please, see the attached file. (I've already answered this to anton5) Sorry, I wasn't able to open your pictures - so, in general, lines and dimensions are exported as IfcAnnotation (MVD should be Vectorworks Extended). Regards, Misho Grid_01.zip

    Hi Anton5, Currently, the text always follows the direction of the axis or is horizontal (Rotate Text is off), bubbles are all positioned, according to the bubble offset setting. If you want to skip a letter, you could split it to 2 grid bubbles. You can use the Prefix setting to put a text before the mark. If you think, your suggestions are important, please, add an enhancement request. Regards, Misho

    Hi Kazemester, IFC4 certification is in progress (for all, not only Vw) and there is no application that is certified. So, in the next months, at least the applications, that participate in the certification will release texture support (Vw, too). Regards, Misho

    Hi Kazemester, Although texture capabilities can be handled in IFC, textures were excluded from Coordination View 2.0 and other certified MVDs (IFC2x3). Texture support will be available in IFC4 Reference View, when certified (it's in progress). (IfcSurfaceTexture defines the "style" of a geometry representation part and it can't be used standalone. IFC is object-centric, so it works only with objects - each object has data, geometry and relationships with other objects. That's why geometry can't be used standalone also - an extrude can be the geometric representation of a wall, slab, column, beam... So you need to specify the object first (e.g. slab) and then its geometry and data) Regards, Misho
