i understand less than before. your ifc data dialog has material data checked and populated (have you inserted the word 'concrete' manually ??), but the dimensions in the solibri model viewer are set at 'zero', and you don't have any record data fields populated in the object info dialog (tab data) in the vw file.

as i see the only issue of your ifc data that is richer than in mine is the material tab in the ifc data and the material description.

to see the results i will have to wait for the material data entry check in the external estimation software. it will last a while.

what's going on here? i'm confused...

yes i added concrete

no i do not have any vw records data attached

i was adding lots of info in the ifc dialog box but have stopped. it is not needed to export to ifc and i was losing the data when i had to modify the 3d object

actually i don't know if it's a bug or a feature.

somehow the data must be populated in the ifc export file in order for the estimation and simulation softwares to retrieve it.

and somehow the automated vectorworks ifc export seems to miss it.

so is my impression for today.



and how about the ifc data exchange with ies virtual environment?

ifcME - 8.0 - referenced building did not show up in the correct location

this referenced building did not show up in the correct location. even made a design layer view port of it in the source file and did a "offset" to the correct location then ref that "offset" layer only.
