IFC exporting surfaces with Highlights affect looks white

When I export *.IFC, wall surfaces that receives more sun (Highlighted) becomes white, so model looks strange. Is it possible to turn off Highlight effect when exporting *.IFC ?

Dear Algimantas,

Thank you for the report and I am sorry about the issue!

This is the first time I see such an issue with IFC export! I'm wondering which software you are using to read the IFC output? Do you see these brighter walls when reimporting the IFC back to Archicad? Furthermore, which Archicad version are you using?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,
