Blender BIM/ IfcBuildingStorey

I was playing with Blender, trying to assign different materials, properties, void. And then check if the IFC export still works after making an Array modifiers. As you can see in the colourful screenshot it worked perfect. :-)

However I wanted to move some random cubes to another Building Storey, so what I did I just made a New Collection, renamed it to 'IfcBuildingStorey/My Storey 2' and move some cubes to this collection.
I checked the Object Properties to see which IFC Spatial Container the cubes were in.
But 'IfcBuildingStorey/My Storey 2' doesn't show up.
I tried exporting to IFC anyway (Technically it's not exporting as I understood, but you're directly modifying the IFC file). But no Building Storey 2 could be found.

The question is quite simple. What's the correct way of adding another Building Storey?

  • @Coen if you look closely you will see that the First Storey collection contains an "empty" object ;)
    One way I know would be to create an empty Add > Empty > Plain Axes and having this selected assign to it the correct IFC class from the Object Property IfcSpatialElement and IfcBuildingStorey. This will create the collection with the empty inside and I believe you can manually move it where you want.

    Have you applied the array modifier before exporting?
    So, there is a possibility to make IFC-magic with GeometryNodes?

    What I did was applying the array modifier, then went in to Edit Mode -> A -> P -> Loose Parts.
