Wall end cap to IFC

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Before we have had issues with the wall end cap to IFC. It has exported as "open sheets and not a solide wall into IFC.

Then we did a work around to make it solide.

In 2018 SP4 it export as solide, but its not a wall it export as covering not wall that is an issue for us.

Is this fixed in 2019 or will there be another service pack on 2018?

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.

It seems to me when you use wall end cap on a wall it is still a wall in VW but becomes covering in Solibri.

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.
