ReD_CoDE, there are a few issues with IfcDoc:
1. The baseline provided by IfcDoc is "IFC4_Add2_20160712" - in other words, the IFC doc file is 3 years old already. That version is not the latest "official" status version, and nor is it the latest ISO publication. That suggests that using the IFC doc file is not the correct approach.
2. IfcDoc is a Windows-only platform, so the only thing available to parse that is cross-platform is the STEP .ifcdoc file, of which there is only that version available. This is a bit limiting, compared to the full gamut of formats and versions available on the specs page. I will not be able to run the IfcDoc tool.
3. FreeCAD is tied to IfcOpenShell, so what we support has to be what IfcOpenShell also supports. This is unrelated to IfcDoc.
How does IfcDoc solve the problem? Perhaps I am misunderstanding something?
