IFC elevation stories

Hi,

Is there an option, having already an ArchiCAD file with stories created, to import the levels from an IFC file.

What I mean is that, if I had an ArchiCAD file with Story 1 and Story 2 already created, with elevations 3 meters, and I merge an IFC, I can match stories, but I don’t see how to import the correct elevations.

I could erase the stories from the ArchiCAD files, but I would like to have them for the views already created. Does anyone know how I should proceed? I don’t know if I am missing something.

Regards,

When you open IFC file - ArchiCAD creates stories accordingly to information found in IFC.
If you are merging IFC with another model, made in ArchiCAD, it's better to open IFC as a new file and after hotlink it to the main file. It's safer this way and easier to fix errors in IFC or manage storey height, attributes etc.
