Class Mapping - IFC Export


Posted (edited)



We have a class mapping function now in DWG export, which is great, and long overdue, but we really need one for IFC export too.


EIther that or some way to map another field or concatenate other fields in the Data Mapping tool to the 'Layer' field in the IFC.  Currently this seems to be automated, and class = IFC layer.


We have had to resort to a script to perform the class mapping prior to IFC export, but think it would be useful for the software to do it for you.


The 'other' software uses the mapping table for DWG export for IFC export too.  These would seem to be the most sensible solution.

I will add to this by saying IF we were able to map the class description or tag to the IFC layer, via data mapping, that would do nicely.
