Export all surfaces to IFC

gdford
Advisor

This is an object created with the parmo tool.

gdford_0-1673110279278.png

When I export this to IFC i get the surface colors, but I get no IFC data saying the names of the surfaces. In Archicad I can schedule the surfaces for this object, but I can not use expressions to pull out an individual surface from the (All Surfaces) parameter. It seems odd that he surface shows up in IFC, but there seems to be no way to get the names of the surfaces to show up in IFC other than using dumb data.

My goal is to use the name of the surface to give information about the style of the trach head.
Any Ideas Anyone??

By "parmo", I suppose you mean Param-O?

Is this one object with 4 Lamps within it?

Or are these 4 instances of the same Lamp object?

Yes Param-O
This is one object with 4 lamps.
This is not 4 instances of the same Lamp Object.

Yes, I think it is not possible to get that information into the exported IFC file if this is a single Library part. This is because you basically would have to be able to identify the subelements of the Library Part and assign those Materials to those subelements. This is not implemented for IFc export.

I wonder what would happen if you saved the file under another name, and in that new file you would convert this Library Part to a Morph. Would then the exported IFC contain the data you need?
