I use a DWG to IFC export functionality that seems to break geometry. Thanks @Moult (*)
I would like to investigate these principles a little more.
1.What happens when SAT definitions are converted? Does IFC support solids, how?
2.What influence does ‘block definitions’ have on the quality of IFC ecxport
Possible Bim tools
(other coming from ODA initiatives)
First thing i did is explode all the blocks that came in from STEP. Export both file sets as DWG and their exports to IFC. The effectiveness of blockdef. is 7x filesize
When i open them in BIMviewer i notice these things
- Round segmentation can only be 8
- The name of objects disappairs. Seem like the data is not attached to subelement but ‘in group’(?)
- These parts look good but is see some parts not being good translated (?)
Something goes wrong with some elements with the IFC conversion.
- In DWG these look just fine. Nothing wrong here.
- Strange behaviour
Btw. I am running this on software called Autodesk AutoCAD Architecture … which has VERSION !2020! people
