Importing IFC files

You can import IFC file by clicking on Import File. When you select IFC file, IFCPlugin dialog opens.

In the dialog you can change Main group name or use the "/" character for the sub group creation. You can filter sub group by different attributes (Object Type, Part Type, Description, Layer, Color …).

You can also choose whether subgroups are created or not. You can select a material for sub groups.

Dialog has context sensitive menu. Dialog allows you to check or uncheck whole column and set same material for multiple rows. This is done by setting value for one row, selecting multiple rows and from context sensitive menu selecting “Set same material”.

Only groups marked as “Selected” are brought into MAGNET Explorer.

Error button changes to red if there are errors in IFC file or it has items that are not supported.
