  • Set up the ARCHICAD stories.

  • For the story setup, coordinate with the other stakeholders.

The screenshot below shows a typical coordinated story setup.

Stories/Levels – Real World (option1)

  • Set the ARCHICAD elevation values in the site model to the real world Z coordinate.
  • Keep the Height to Next values the same. When the building model at ARCHICAD origin is hotlinked, it will simply be elevated to the new heights specified in the site file.

Stories/Levels – Real World (option2)

This option goes with Coordinates and Orientation – Real World (option2), if a Survey Point is used. (Since the survey point is used, there is no need for hotlinking the model.) Set the ARCHICAD elevation values in your model to the real world Z coordinates and keep the Height to Next values the same. At export the IFC will be exported to Real World Z coordinates.
