  1. Hi JMR, Please, try it with 2020. Regards, Mihail Rizov
  2. Hi David, As I promised, I asked about your question and here is the answer: "The menu style used in worksheets does not support separators. But this is an improvement we could consider for a future version. Hugues Tsafak Director of Product Development"
  3. Hi David, My answers: - Item 3 - please, file a bug; - Item 2 - sorry, this is outside of my field of competence - I'll try to get an answer from the right person. Regards, Mihail Rizov
  4. Hello, It seems to me, it will be better to have a simple example file attached, so I would be able to examine this closely. Now, to your questions: 1 - We plan to change that for SP3; 2 - Here an example will be of a great help; 3 - Except the need of an example file, as I don't know the content of the worksheets you mention, I'm not sure I understand this "you have to make a selection in the OIP first, or the worksheet selection does not seem to stick" - please, clarify with more details; 4 - Actually, the change happens in real-time, but the object(s) needs to be reset to show the change. OK, understood. 5 - Door is the plug-in object that comes with the English version of Vectorworks. Door CW is a plug-in object that replaces Door in the localized version for DACH-countries; Best Regards, Mihail Rizov
  5. Hi @milezee If you can log bugs in JIRA - this is the preferred way. Otherwise, sharing files platform. Regards, Mihail Rizov
  6. Hi @milezee, How could I get at least one of the files, in order to see what's going on? Regards, Mihail Rizov
  7. Hi Zeno, Of course, Vw supports unique IDs for each object (GUID) and even at the level of components (like for the walls). The other concept is not exactly just a timestamp. It is IFCOWNERHISTORY - it contains not only the timestamp for creation and modification of the object, but also last user and application, type of modification, state and access of the object. It is possible in IFC to attach this to every object in the model, but I've never seen an application to support it at the level of objects - it is supported at the level of the project, so there is just one instance of the owner history and it is used from all of the objects in the model. There was a proposal to all IFC implementers (members of buildingSMART ISG) to make this support, but the main reason to not make it is, that this will make files a lot bigger and will slow down all the applications, along with the implementation costs. Regards, Mihail Rizov
  8. Hi gester, Component functions were made to map component data in one particular workflow, which requires each component to be exported as a separate instance (ExportOptions->Export Separate Instances). So, during the export it returns the component data, based on the currently exported layer. Otherwise, it uses the core component data in the calculations. First, you have to remove the custom pset from Manage Custom Psets (IFC Data dialog) and then you have to be sure that a custom pset is removed from all data mappings. (if even one object uses this custom pset in its IFC Data mapping, then the custom pset will be recreated again) Regards, Mihail Rizov
  9. Hi gester, AFAIU, we need to implement more functions in Data Mapping in order to fulfill your requirements - like, number/area of openings, getting material/material layers. For wall height, please, try object bounds functions. For windows, please, try object parameters RoughOpeningArea/OverallArea/ClearArea (area) and WindowMaterial/WindowFinish (you should provide materials in Windows settings -> Data -> fields 16/17). (record fields are in alphabetical order, because of user requirements) Regards, Mihail Rizov
  10. 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
  11. Hi Acip79, We'll need the file (and Revit version) to be able to help you. Regards, Mihail Rizov
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
