Re: ifcPlusPlus

A little FYI, that I have documented a little bit on the compilation of IfcPlusPlus on my article here: https://thinkmoult.com/how-to-view-bim-ifc-files-linux.html Also, if you haven't considered looking at IfcOpenShell's hidden magical viewer... now would be the time ;) As it offers a lot more func...

How do I easily extrude an object from a side profile?

I am currently aware of three methods to extrude objects: 1. Use the structure tool (main benefit: it is a BIM object) 2. Use the extrude tool (main benefit: tailored towards extruding, many options) 3. Use the "trim" tool (main benefit: intuitive visual feedback on extruding) My questions are as fo...

Re: Should we create an IFC diff utility?

Problems: 1. Current diff utilities require a GUI or are proprietary (Revit addon, solibri...). This is bad - what if you want a BIM server to give notifications like "Foobar has changed geometry of Ground Floor Slab" or "Foobaz has changed attribute Description of North Wall" What if you want BIM s...

Should we create an IFC diff utility?

I know that Yorik has demonstrated a little IFC diff script working in FreeCAD ... I wonder if we can create an open-source independent IFC diff utility, similar to `git diff`? Just a small little thing. It should be cross platform and Unix-like (i.e. do one thing well, and do one thing only) Then F...

Re: IFC entites are Case senstive or not

Good morning Tandy - I noticed this question had been posted twice on the BSI forums - is someone crossposting? For the record, I answered this twice on the BSI forums, but since the "Open"BIM forums are in fact Closed to the public ... I will copy the answer here for completeness :) Technically, pa...

Re: An introduction to IFC and Revit's capabilities

Glad you all enjoyed it :)

For FreeCAD v0.19 I will aim to write an IFC guide for it too.

An introduction to IFC and Revit's capabilities

Although I really wish I could use FreeCAD at my office (and personally I'm not sure FreeCAD is quite mature enough for the scale of projects we work on), I unfortunately need to use Revit. But hey, better IFC files created with Revit is a step in the right direction to industry interoperability! I ...

Re: BSi ISG Spring meeting 2019 14-15 March 2019

Yes - please get an account and hope to see you on the other side :)

I tried the github issue tracker but was told to try the forums. And yes, I think you're right that Thomas is the spec-lead of sorts.
