I'm working with a structural engineer who has been successfully importing my IFC models into Revit, but our latest round isn't going so well. He can only see bits of the model. Nothing has changed at my end I think, other than perhaps updating to macOS 11.1? Or perhaps I've changed an export setting? Thing is I can open my IFC export fine in the likes of BIMCollab ZOOM so it must me a setting change at his end? Any ideas what I could suggest to him? I tried exporting to Revit but there's no way to control version and he couldn't open my file as he's using v2019.
We are long time users of Vectorworks within the architectural sector. We consult to larger firms and provide designs and equipment layouts for institutional projects. More and more our clients have been asking about our compatibility with Revit. We have always worked in 2D and are exploring the jump into 3D/BIM to be more marketable to the architectural offices we work with. I'm looking for feedback on others' experience in working with and the workflow from Vectorworks IFC and Revit. Thinking back to the days of DXF files being imported from and to AutoCAD, it was almost a bigger issue for our partners to bring in our files than it was worth. Has it been the experience of those working between IFC and Revit that the import/export process creates more trouble than its worth? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
