IFC Documantation

I start to learn about IFC file , IFCDoc software and every information about IFC . I am very beginner and i have several questions. please help me.

  1. I saw clip : that published with building smart and when i right click on ifcSpace the assign model view button doesn’t appear and i don’t understand what’s the problem.
  2. please Introduction several references to learn about IFC and how to create IFC file.

If I understand well what you are asking, then I suggest, in my opinion, this is by far the best resource to learn about IFC, once you understand how to navigate through the diagrams it becomes clearer and clearer.
If you are a developer, then one tool -to generate or edit the IFC- (as I am using it) is, its a C# library. There’s also this python library but I haven’t used it.

This has been altered quite some time ago. The documentation should definitely be updated on this.

Not sure if there are any resources available for this though. Me and @jonm are currently working on an updated version of IfcDoc where some new functionalities will be added again which are not documented. I realized this is a big issue. We have to talk about this in the IfcDoc team I guess.

First of all we should work on IFC schema and then develop IfcDoc or any other IfcX solution based on
