Automated IFC Export

Enea
Participant

Dear,

In the company I work for we use a multidisciplinary collaboration tool that relies on the use of IFC files to build a coordinated model. The modelling software involved in our workflows allow the parameterization and automatic conversion of native models (on virtual machines during the night). We do this through the use of dedicated add-ons.

I am looking for a technical solution to export Archicad models to IFC automatically.

Anyone have a method to share?

In advance thanks for you collaboration,

Enea

You should look in the python direction.

The tapir add-on (Tapir add-on) expanded the original add-on to add some command such as "PublishPublisherSet"

Hi Enea,
You can do this with custom Archicad C++ API add-on. AC devkit has an example called "Automate_Functions" where you will find "Do_Save_IfcFile()" function that utilizes ACAPI_Automate( APIDo_SaveID, API_FileSavePars* fileSavePars, API_SavePars_...* formatPars, ... ). You'll need to setup internal IFC parameters. like translator and element filter/set, in formatPars and file settings, like output file location and file type, in fileSavePars.

Regards,
Dmytro
