Thank you very much LaszloNagy!
Ok, I was really confused with import translators. I thought it was possible to use type mapping to map the element in ArchiCAD, as we can map ArchiCAD elements into IFC elements, in export translators. After reading your message here, I have seen an ArchiCAD video (
), where it says that import mapping controls how imported elements are classified, and that this is important because the classification controls which ArchiCAD properties it has.
So, to which ArchiCAD element the IFC element is imported, is hard-coded. It’s sad to hear that, because I can’t do anything. In my opinion, it isn’t logical to import the IfcFooting into objects, instead into the tools we use to model them (beams and slabs). I would like to know why developers have decided to do that, may be there’s a reason I don’t see
You have helped me a lot, thank you again! I hope, in some time, I can also help other people.
