Re: Export structural analysis data to IFC

Exciting times! Just a heads up that the BlenderBIM add-on can now export some (not all) structural data to an IFC, and that IFC can be converted into input into Code_Aster for simulation: https://github.com/IfcOpenShell/IfcOpenShell/issues/756 Already, once FreeCAD gains these abilities, we can sha...

Re: Blender now supports IFC export

This is cross-posted from the buildingSMART thread, FYI :) Yorik and I had a chat about the IFC diff tool - since it is standalone it would be awesome if FreeCAD could parse its output JSON as well to visualise diffs. Also, if you didn't yet see the other thread, Vote for IfcOpenShell and open sourc...

Re: Blender now supports IFC export

Thanks for the report bitacovir!

This issue was fixed on the 31st Dec from this commit. The fix will be available in the next release of BlenderBIM.

I noticed that XBim has the same issue. I think there is a deeper issue here to investigate, but I'm not sure what yet :)

Re: Blender now supports IFC export

I have been writing the code to be decoupled from Blender. That way 1) the utilities can be run headlessly by itself, direct from IFC, without need for Blender preprocessing on a BIM server, 2) the utilities, and their outputs can be shared by other projects like FreeCAD, XeoGL, and so on, and 3) Mo...

Re: [ Feature / Bug ] - Mirror Export to IFC as IFCBuildingElementProxy

Just a heads-up that mirroring is possible by using a mapped representation, with a non-uniform cartesian transformation scale of -1 along an axis. This has been implemented in Blender with Blender's mirror modifier :) https://github.com/IfcOpenShell/IfcOpenShell/blob/v0.6.0/src/ifcblenderexport/ble...
