Importing an OBJECT in the IFC format

Maurice 2017-11-06 11:12:52


Here's a technical support request that I wanted to share with our users.

Question:
How do I import an IFC object/model into my project?

Answer:
To import an IFC file, proceed as follows:

1] From the Object Menu select "IFC Object" ;

2] Left-click on the Drawing Model (in 2D or 3D View);

3] Select the IFC file in the directory where it is saved and click on "Open";

4] Wait for the IFC import process to conclude (time depends on the complexity of the IFC model);

5] Left-Click on the Drawing Table (directly in a Level or 3D VIEW) to place the IFC object at the desired position.
