Export IFC and DXF file to ETABS

Hi,

What are the settings to be done to export to ETABS using DXF and IFC file format.

I tried the setting in DXF-DWG Translation setup and IFC Translation setup.

The file is not opening in ETABS.

Please help me.

Thank you,

Regards,

Curved beam and arched beam is not exporting to Etabs through IFC. Y?

In this post, they have given to convert from AC to IFC through Revit software,

https://www.scirp.org/journal/paperinformation.aspx?paperid=109786.

But if we don't have Revit, the convertion we need to do using with Archicad

Could you take the IFC exported from Archicad and open it in an IFC Viewer such as Solibri?

Can you see those elements in Solibri?

If yes, that means the IFC Export is successful, but the IFC IMport into Etabs causes the problem.

If no, then you should try exporting the IFC using other options, for example, try to export geometry as BREP which will always export exact geometries.
