Hello friends! I am a beginner working with IFC and I have a question.
Can anyone tell me which IFC parameter allows me to control the graphic colors of the surface of objects in Revit that I want to be shown in other BIM software?
For example, I want that in a Hydrosanitary project that I did using Revit, which I have exported to IFC, the sewer pipes are green and those of cold water blue when opened in ArchiCAD. But this is not working.
In Revit filters (hot water = red, cold water = blue, sewage = green)
In archiCAD (hot water = beige, cold water = blue, sewage = blue)
I’m mapping the layers of each type of system in Revit, so that in ArchiCAD everything is organized. Now I need to control the colors that will appear in ArchiCAD.
For example, a cold water pipe connection in Revit contains the parameter IfcPresentationLayer = Pipe connection. When I import this IFC file into ArchiCAD, it will have the “Pipe connection” layer.
My intention is to create a parameter that also specifies the color that it will appear in ArchiCAD. Maybe some of the parameters like IfcPresentationItem, IfcPresentationLayerWithStyle or IfcSurfaceStyle will work, but I need to know how to use them.
Can I associate any of these parameters as a shared family parameter and determine a color for the element (as I do with IfcPresentationLayer to determine the Layer)?
