Is there a way utilizing a IFC creation program to do this? Which IFC entity type would be recommended?
As mentioned in the other thread, IfcOpenShell can be used to do this.
There are any entity types which can be used. I’ve linked a few options below:
- IfcArbitraryClosedProfileDef with a curve of some kind, the more intuitive of which might be an IfcPolyline
- IfcFace with a loop such as an IfcPolyLoop
There is no “recommended” way, as it is entirely dependent on your situation and which geometry your authoring tool works best with.
Thanks again Moult
