Good evening everyone.
i was working on IFC export , and faced certain new issue in finding some data in IFC files.
ISSUE1: which Attribute/Entitie store the clear cover or side cover etc. Means covers provided during reinforcement of members like column, beam, slab etc.
ISSUE1: The spacing between the rebars i.e if we provide 10 dia @100c/c where this 100 will store in IFC,
Some software transfer then in proxy or ifcpropertysinglevalue but it is not extracted or connected to any members so impossible to use them.
Major issue : We give material to Structure members as M 20, M25 etc for concrete and Fe500 for Rebars
But again nothing is exported to IFC . we get concrete as label in IFCMATERIAL and again some software give M25 in proxy.
we have attritube like IfcMechanicalMaterialProperties , IfcMechanicalConcreteMaterialProperties etc Why software’s are not using these to store the properties of materials.
