doc = insert(filename, doc.Name, skip, only, root)
File "/tmp/.mount_FreeCAoG4xcs/usr/Mod/Arch/", line 347, in insert
additions = importIFCHelper.buildRelAdditions(ifcfile)
File "/tmp/.mount_FreeCAoG4xcs/usr/Mod/Arch/", line 214, in buildRelAdditions
additions.setdefault(, []).extend([ for e in r.RelatedObjects])
File "/tmp/.mount_FreeCAoG4xcs/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/ifcopenshell/", line 60, in __getattr__
File "/tmp/.mount_FreeCAoG4xcs/usr/lib/python3.8/site-packages/ifcopenshell/", line 1558, in get_argument
return _ifcopenshell_wrapper.entity_instance_get_argument(self, *args)
<class 'RuntimeError'>: Instance #5967 not found

Thank you for your work and help.
