I was told that I could "import" an ifc into a blank "new project" and save it as but when I open revit and either link or open a new project, I don't see much.
moreover by opening a project, it only offers to draw from autodesk not the ifc format.

and when I come to link it doesn't embed a mockup, I only see the base point of 'ifc,

curious, I must start badly, a little process would not hurt

Hello,

There is an easy way to open and convert an IFC document. via the 'Open' menu then the 'IFC' line. Revit Converts and opens the IFC document.

Then, on a 3D view, double click with the mouse button, this will make an extended zoom of the model.

Hello,

If you simply link your IFC, Revit by default creates a Revit file for you ;-) Then you just have to open it and it's done (the file will have as name: xxx.ifc.rvt)

Good evening Francoise,

The version of the ifc as well as its Ddefinition of Veu de Modèle counts for a lot in its interpretation before its import. Here are all the versions and official MVD according to BuildingSMART:

The IFC2x3 standard includes a main MVD
Coordination View V2.0:
This view was designed to coordinate the three main models of the design of a project: the architectural model, the structural model and the fluid model.

The IFC4 standard provides for two main MVDs:
Reference View 1.0:
This view is rather intended for unidirectional exchange flows, the sender of the file remaining the owner of the model. It guarantees the geometric consistency of the model and the basic quantities, and on the other hand, it is not necessarily possible to recover or modify the objects of the model.

Design Transfer View 1.0:
This view retains the editable character of IFC objects as much as possible, so it allows you tointervene a posteriori on the model and gives the possibility of adding, deleting, modifying or extracting elements. Ownership of the model can be transferred.

This last one is very interesting but if three BIM design tools have already been certified since 2019 and therefore able to collaborate via this protocol, the vast majority of BIM users are not at IFC 2X3.

Some BIM design tools like Vectorworks or Archicad allow the export / import of an IFC 2X3 via the "Design View" MVD which behaves a bit like the Design Transfer View of IFC 4. But these cannot be found. not always correspondence among all BIM design tools, unfortunately it is not possible to collaborate qualitatively.

1- IFC 2x3 or 4 and which MVD?
2- How is the ifc translated on import? What are the cursors on which we can intervene to adjust or increase the quality of IFC interpretation?

Depending on the answers to these two questions, the end result can be radically different regardless of the digital mockup design tool.


At your disposal for any further information,
