IFC Export - Openings & Renovation Status

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hello Everyone! I hope 2021 has been treating you well so far!

I was trying to export an AC23 model to IFC today, and have discovered an odd issue.

It seems that regardless of renovation status, the solid element operation performed by archicad Opening tool will be visible when exported to IFC.

Example:

I have 2 openings placed on a slab, one would only be shown on Rev Stat A, and the other Rev Stat B.

Now, in Archicad, the 3D works perfectly; the openings only shows up at their relevant filter.

However, when exported as IFC, all openings are shown regardless of their renovation status.

Could I have missed some export settings?

(For the screenshots attached, I also tried to have the third opening set as "To be demolished" just to rule out that is not an "Shown On Renovation Filter" issue.)

I believe this is a serious bug with the Opening Tool. I have entered it as a defect in our database (please refer to it as DEF-3397). I hope this won't be a difficult fix.

Thank you Minh for the quick response! Appreciate it.
Just curious, and I do not mean to sound pushy, but just wanted to know how would I know if when this issue has been fixed? Regardless, I will wait patiently meanwhile
