Please let me know if you have any problems accessing.

@sergej I was serious about you entering all those issues you uncovered about IFC4.x geometry on the last day in https://github.com/buildingSMART/NextGen-IFC :wink:

But that goes for everyone else, as well!!! This will be the best way for us to track such concerns as the IFC5 schema architecture continues to develop.

And don’t be afraid to start new discussions on the other topics/presentations here or in GitHub (if they are related to a specific technical repository).

Thank you to everyone for attending, presenting, and contributing to the discussions.
