I am currently researching parametric information in IFC. As far as I can tell both IFC2x3 and IFC4 can express parametric geometries for certain objects and certain geometries using IfcProfile classes.
I have some questions regarding this:
If I use an authoring tool and export my file to IFC including parametric information, can other authoring tools understand this information? Was this part of the Ifc2x3 certification, is it part of the Ifc4 certification? (Example: Revit -> Ifc -> Allplan)
Is IFC capable of more complex parametric information e.g. for bridge construction, place components in reliance to a center axis?
How has your overall experience been?
