I have an Archicad model, which I have to export as an IFC so I can use it in Revit MEP.
When I do so and import the IFC in Revit, the door swings are not visible. I've already tried many translator configurations but none seems to work out.
The oddest thing is, I'm able to export a version with the door swings when I match the IFC Site Location with the survey point; however, when I match with project origin (which is what I need), the door swings never show.
What could be the issue here? The option related to 2D visibility of doors/windows inside "Model Filter" is always marked.
Use the Archicad and Revit model exchange add on provided by GRAPHISOFT, and use it to import the IFC in Revit, Revit doesn't read correctly IFC, you can check your IFC quality in Solibri for example, to check if the exported IFC has problems or not
@Cristophe Fortineau, I've tried many schema configurations, but they were all based on the general export translator. I attached some prints here. I apologize because my Archicad is in Portuguese, but I guess the options are standardized throughout the different language templates. If you have any doubt regarding what's written just ask me.
As to the model view definitions, yes I did check them. The 3D visualization of doors and windows are all set as "Complete".
@bouhmidage I checked the models in Solibri and they're apparently fine. Could you tell me more in detail which are the parameters I should be looking for?
I managed to import a model that shows 2D projections of doors, including door swings. They are, however, displaced from the model, as you can see in the image I attached.
When I click on one of the door swings to try to move them, they disappear. In the 3D view, the doors are placed correctly, attached to the walls, so I guess it's an issue related to the projections and not to the doors themselves.
in Solibri and they're apparently fine
No need to look for Archicad. If Solibri manages to read your IFC model correctly then it means that the IFC export is correct.
I invite you to contact the export trader AECOsim Building Designer and then let me know about your door and window concerns.
Thank you very much for the question and I am very sorry for the experience!
It turned out to be an issue with Revit's IFC import. As Christophe has mentioned, if Solibri reads the file correctly, the IFC export from Archicad should be correct. Unfortunately, we cannot do anything about it in this case. I really hope Autodesk will fix it soon!
Thank you very much for your understanding! If you have any further questions, feel free to ask me again!
