IFC from Revit to Archicad

Vladislav V

Maybe someone knows. I have an IFS file from Revit and when loaded into Archikad, all structures and objects are placed on one layer, but I need them to be placed on different layers.

Have a look at the IFC translator you are using.

It is probably set to import all onto one layer.

If not, are you sure the Revit file is correct on separate layers?

In the IFC translator, in the layer convertion part, you have an option to import all in the same layer, import layers as created in revit or mapping layers to your Archicad layers
