Arraying in IFC

Apparently there's no support for 'arraying' in IFC.

Would be awesome if freecad/blenderbim implemented a tweak to the IFC to support this, and then in turn proposed it back to BuildingSmart. :)

  • Definitely something we should do. Same with mirroring. Which happens all the time.

    But I think I should check first, since I think when I asked this to buildingSMART last time they were working on adding it with the roads / infra extension.

  • ATM in freecad an array is exported as an IfcElementAssembly of objects with shared geometry. But we could define together properties that would define the array, that apps could use to reconstruct it.

    Which more and more leads to, we should have some kind of "official" place to define such properties. The good thing is that it would not invalidate the schema, other apps not aware of these properties would still see it as as assembly

  • cool.

    ...we should have some kind of "official" place to define such properties.

    https://gitlab.com/osarch/FreeMVD_WorkFlow seems like it would be good place for it.
