[BlenderBIM] Authoring IFC Files for Revit
I have been playing around with Blender BIM Addon and immersing myself in documentation, videos, IFC docs, etc.
You guys are going in the right direction and it's only a matter of time until BB becomes a serious contender!
I want to create IFC files that can be opened in Revit where objects are properly represented as families, or at least not generic models/DirectShapes. The source data, old Revit files (2013) or CAD files are translated using FME .
- FME is able to read the Revit files and output data in a variety of formats, but their IFC Writer does not support IFC Materials and Types at this time.
- I am hoping to import either a formatted spreadsheet or an incomplete IFC file that I can modify in BB and /or the IfcCsv tool.
- The idea is to get as close as possible to replicating the original Revit model.
- Whatever is missing could be added/fixed using the Revit API.
Is there a way to add IfcWallType, or any Type in BB currently?
From what I can tell, if the IFC file does not have Types to begin with, you can't add them.
