IFC Export

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, 

I need to export an IFC file of the attached project and I was wondering if someone could please explain the export settings to me? What are the best settings?

I have tried exporting the model as is, however the file created is empty with no information visible.

 

thank you

Hello @Victor S,

 

Exporting the attached to your post document as it is results in creation of the Slab objects only in the IFC file - because Slabs have their own IFC data already attached to them. For all of the rest custom objects which you add in the document - like the extrudes in this example - you have to set the appropriate IFC data.

and more specifically http://app-help.vectorworks.net/2020/eng/index.htm#t=VW2020_Guide%2FIFC%2FAssigning_IFC_data_to_objects.htm

 

Hope this helps,

Nina
