IfcTriangulatedFaceSet

Is anybody using IfcTriangulatedFaceSet for export?
Could you please give some examples?

I do, but unfortunately, I cannot share the model.

Here is a snippet, hopefully it helps:

#10397 = IFCCARTESIANPOINTLIST3D(((3.76133079953433E-5, 99.999932308654, 300.000045776385), (143.680221023953, 99.999932308654, 300.000045776385), (56.3198557285423, 99.999932308654, -2.47192364440707E-4), (3.76133079953433E-5, 99.999932308654, -2.47192364440707E-4), (100.000038376247, 2.22225646211882E-4, -2.47192364440707E-4), (56.3198557285423, 2.22225646211882E-4, -2.47192364440707E-4), (100.000038376247, 2.22225646211882E-4, 300.000045776385), (143.680221023953, 2.22225646211882E-4, 300.000045776385)));
#10407 = IFCTRIANGULATEDFACESET(#10397, $, $, ((1, 2, 3), (3, 4, 1), (3, 4, 5), (5, 6, 3), (6, 5, 7), (7, 8, 6), (7, 8, 2), (2, 1, 7), (4, 5, 7), (7, 1, 4), (8, 6, 3), (3, 2, 8)), $);

Thanks Moult.
Why do not you use IfcPolygonalFaceSet?
I see only justification to use IfcTriangulatedFace.Normals, it any cases IfcPolygonalFaceSet is preferable. Or am I missing?

Well, corrected question: is anybody using IfcTriangulatedFaceSet with Normals for export?
