Curtain Walling and IFC Problem

Question

Having a problem with Curtain Wall objects exporting to IFC currently.

 

Problem arose after exporting a curtain wall to IFC, then opening to view in Solibri. The glazed panels did not display with a transparency.

 

After a maddening process of trial and error, I still can't seem to resolve this. It seems that no matter what curtain wall style options or class settings are used, either the glazed portions of curtain walling are not exported, or are exported with a solid fill.

 

Somebody please tell me I'm missing something obvious!

 

On another note, the curtain walling tool could really do with an overhaul. This should be a simple process.

Update - The only way I can get this to work properly in IFC export (on attempt 11), is to use 'unstyled' curtain walling. Which is impractical for the project I am currently working on.

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,
