The IFC exporter 2013 contains up-to-date improvements on the default IFC export capabilities of Autodesk® Revit® contributed by Autodesk and our Open Source contributors. While this app is not necessary for IFC support, it is recommended that users that depend on the quality of their IFC export download this app and keep it up-to-date, as new enhancements and defect fixes are added, For more information on IFC, please visit the buildingSMART website ( http://buildingsmart.org) or the Revit wiki ( http://wikihelp.autodesk.com/enu).
About This VersionVersion 2.17.0, 8/5/2015
- A lot of changes have been made to make the IFC exporter create better COBie data, and work more closely with the new COBie exporter, found at http://www.autodesk.com/content/dam/autodesk/www/campaigns/interoperability/COBieExtensionSetup_v1.0.exe. Note that the COBie
exporter is for 2014 only, but the changes to create better COBie data were ported to the 2013 IFC exporter also. Please see the SourceForge wiki for more information.
- Add support for IfcActorRole.
- Add support for IfcBuildingElementProxyType (for IFC2x3 only; not supported in IFC2x2).
- Add some support for IfcRailingType (not for all cases).
- Add classifications to IfcBuildingStorey, IfcSystem and IfcZone.
- Allow some proxies to be parts of MEP IfcSystems.
- Better naming of distribution ports (Revit connectors), consistent with COBie requirements.
- Get COBie contact information from the new COBie toolkit if it is available.
- Remove use of .ELEMENT. for IfcBuildingElementProxy, which is obsolete in IFC4.
- Set the description of connection types for wall connections consistent with COBie requirements.
- Support export of user defined property sets.
- Don't stop looking for custom classification codes when an empty classification code is found; check all 10.
- Set ceilings as space boundaries regardless of which MVD is being used.
- Use correct family type when creating classification information for types.
