Creating IfcCompositeProfileDef along with IfcMirorredProfileDef

I'm trying to create a composite element type with multiple profile extrusions. Has anyone tried IfcMirroredProfileDef and IfcCompositeProfileDef. I have been able to make the composite profile partially successful, but, with mirroring, my element type fails.
Any help in this direction. I am trying to do this with IfcOpenshell
I have also changed the Position attribute of the profile to achieve the relative placement of profiles within the composite profile. Is that how it is done?

  • with mirroring, my element type fails.

    fails how?

    I have also changed the Position attribute of the profile to achieve the relative placement of profiles within the composite profile. Is that how it is done?

    I think it depends whether subprofiles of the composite profile should still be available without the offsets. To keep the offset separate from the original profiles you can use IfcDerivedProfileDef.

    Hi @Andrej730
    I've done a simple test to create a mirrored profile from a u-profile and assign it to a beam type.
    This is my code below
    I'hv also shared the error message on opening the ifc file.
    Is the shape creation for IfcMirroredProfileDef failing?
    I'm also attaching the test ifc file fyr

    import ifcopenshell
    path = '/home/arun/Desktop/mirror_test_u.ifc'
    
    f = ifcopenshell.open(path)
    beam_type = ifcopenshell.api.run('root.create_entity', f, ifc_class='IfcBeamType')
    
    u_profile = f.by_type('IfcUShapeProfileDef')[0]
    
    u_profile_mirrored = f.createIfcMirroredProfileDef()
    u_profile_mirrored.ProfileType = 'AREA'
    u_profile_mirrored.ParentProfile = u_profile
    
    material_set = ifcopenshell.api.run('material.add_material_set', f, name=None, set_type='IfcMaterialProfileSet')
    ifcopenshell.api.run('material.add_profile', f, profile_set=material_set, material=None, profile=u_profile_mirrored)
    ifcopenshell.api.run('material.assign_material', f, product=beam_type, material=material_set)
    
    f.write(path)
