Thanks for your replay!

I'm using a free version as trial and trying to create a BoQ from an ICF model. According to tutorial video, I should be easy - just click on the New tab and simply creat it - as an attached file from a print screen. But, In my case, it doesn´t appear - I just can open a new file - again, check attached file.

I can't find any other tutorial video or even training video or tutorial. If somebody could help, me please send a replay.481495_1532171676_screenshot_2018_07_21_080734.png481495_1532171701_screenshot_2018_07_21_080743.png

the video tutorial shows a previous interface version but it's the same thing.
With your currently installed version, you simply select "Create new document from IFC file".

This allows you to proceed creating a BoQ document from IFC.

At this point, once you have loaded your IFC model, you proceed in assigning PRICE LIST items to the IFC entities.

I suppose you have seen some of the Videos that show how to operate but here's a list of useful topics that may help you further: [^]

PriMus IFC reads all the information exported from BIM in the IFC format.
Therefore, if the there is the information, it can be found in the entities properties in PriMus IFC, the length, width, height, volume, surfaces of the wall, etc., and also of all the other entities.

During the exportation from the BIM to the IFC format, this information is not always exported, therefore it is advisable to verify the export options in the IFC format in the BIM software (Revit, ArchiCAD, etc.).

Please see the explanatory image attached.

If you can not get what you want, please send us the IFC file and we will help you.
