IFC export of facebinder objects

Postby bernd » Fri Aug 10, 2018 6:58 am

The CAD we gone use at work is not able to extract faces from solids easily. I need a lot of faces from solids for a project. My idea was as follows.

- export the building model from Allplan as ifc
- import the model in FreeCAD
- create facebinder from solids for all neded faces
... works great so far

- export the facebinder faces to ifc --> the exported ifc is empty :(
- import ifc in Allplan

Does ifc export support export of faces ?

cheers bernd

I think facebinder is like a Draft element (Dwire). They cannot be exported as ifc files, yet.
