P.S. What is the link to that huge STEP file you once mentioned?
https://github.com/sgrogan/FreeCAD/rele ... teptest.7z
a similar complex model but from a building could be imported by ifc into FreeCAD. See topic https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic. ... 131#p40373

I got an IFC not supported on my system. Any idea on how to enable it ?

Arch IFC
The importer is still a work in progress, and depends on an external piece of open-source software, called IfcOpenShell, which is not bundled with FreeCAD and must be installed on your system.

I'm gone provided an step, but it will take a few hours, because ifc importer in FreeCAD is not optimized on speed.

If you would import it yourself you would need to compile ifcopenshell. Some people did it on OSX too allready. See https://sourceforge.net/p/ifcopenshell/ ... rce=navbar The official github repo is https://github.com/IfcOpenShell/IfcOpenShell

You can work on the second point if you like. I will work on the last two points then and will hopefully make a new PR soon.

About the progress bar:
It works with
OS: Windows 7
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.16.6706 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: releases/FreeCAD-0-16
Hash: f86a4e411ff7848dea98d7242f43b7774bee8fa0
Python version: 2.7.8
Qt version: 4.8.7
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 6.8.0.oce-0.17
But it neither works with
OS: Windows 7
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.17.10074 (Git)
Build type: Release
Branch: master
Hash: 34a3039577b20fcf69300f84ff59a140fe690aa6
Python version: 2.7.8
Qt version: 4.8.7
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.0.0
nor with
OS: Windows 7
Word size of OS: 64-bit
Word size of FreeCAD: 64-bit
Version: 0.17.10073 (Git)
Build type: Debug
Branch: master
Hash: 69e027a6071cd9eafa1e7190c95d151949a39ca9
Python version: 2.7.8
Qt version: 5.6.0
Coin version: 4.0.0a
OCC version: 7.0.0
So it can also be an OCC 7 issue.

I you remember I have push a PR a few days ago to increase the progress bar timing. Could it be related ? I don't think so, but we never know. One of the issue I faced was that the handling of the progress bar was taking a lot of time on MacOS and OCCT which was reporting too much things to the bar, it could have perhaps a side effect to "disable" it.

I wouldn't have expected this but it's indeed your change that doesn't let the progress bar to progress.

I wouldn't either. Let me try to understand why. Perhaps the restart call is resetting the progress bar ? It should be easy to fix.
