There is here a list of all zone parameters : 
https://helpcenter.graphisoft.com/user-guide/76909/

But i am not able to find this parameter into my french archicad :

I hope to find it but where ?
My aim is to be able to get it into an ifc export.

Hello Garry,

 

My first test had been carried out from AC22 and this property is indeed not operational. However since AC23, 24, 25 and 26. Yves was right ! Being used to performing this task with more recent versions, I had never noticed any malfunction on AC22. An old and obsolete problem !

I am using the USA version and I don't see it in the parameters list either. It is available in the schedules parameters and the custom properties list. I would suggest to just create a custom property or expression and map that to IFC.

Hello poco2013,

 

"It is available in the schedules parameters and the custom properties list"

 

I do not find it into custom properties list. Where do you find it ?

My question was not where can I create a new property but where is the parameter i have illustrated into my first message. It seems to be absent from french version.

Thank you Yves for your participation. I should point out that I had previously tested all possible surface values ​​but none seemed to correspond. The targeted value in Yves' post results in a result of 0.00m2 whatever the zone area.

 

Is this operational on your side ?

On archicad 23 I get the right value
Try updating the zones

I am not sure, but has it anything to do with the relation to zones settings in the walls?
