General Usage Instructions
1.) Open an empty Revit file (version 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023).
(Caution: ifc2room deletes all levels (and the associated views) from the underlying Revit file and then creates new levels based on the Ifc file.)
2.) Start ifc2room.
3.) Selection of the Ifc file to be read (double click in text field).
4.) Selection of the Revit view type, which shall be the basis for the rooms.
5.) Press "Start".
The installer that ran when you downloaded this app from Autodesk App Store will start installing the app. OR, simply double-click the downloaded installer to install the app/plugin. You may need to restart Revit to activate the app. When you start Revit for the first time, you will be prompted to load the tool once or permanently. Please confirm your selection. To uninstall this App, exit Revit if you are currently running it, simply rerun the installer, and select the "Uninstall" button. OR, click Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features (Windows 7/8.1/10/11) and uninstall as you would any other application from your system.
· Only one architectural model per Ifc file (no merged Ifc files).
· Currently only tested for Ifc 2x3.
· Revit spaces should not be exported as IfcSpace, otherwise they will overlay the rooms.
· Due to Revit's own geometric minimum tolerances, inaccuracies within the Ifc file may cause problems with the IfcSpaces to be converted. This would have corresponding consequences for the Revit Rooms to be generated. To compensate for this Revit-side deficit, ifc2room identifies these spaces, calculates the error and documents the respective spaces in the log file. At the end of the program run, ifc2room lists the converted, the unconverted and the over-calculated rooms for checking purposes.
