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,

Roopa A

It is not attaching the file, both IFC and pln file?

The best PLN
At worst IFC (IFC'll be more lightweight)

What about your OS and Archicad ?
There is something wrong about your installation

You can't attach IFC or PLN files directly in this forum.
You must ZIP them, but then they may still be too big.
Use a file sharing utility (like Dropbox) and private message the link to Christophe (or post it here if you don't mind everyone else having access).

Sir Check the file please. This file is created just for checking weather it is opening in ETABS or not.
ArchiCAD file is attached.

Thank you,

Hi

No matter to export an ifc
No matter to read it with SMV (Solibri)
All the element seems to be right...

I've not found a ETABS for macOS to check this ifc

No I do not change anything
Perhaps it is more an ETABS parameter issue
