Export Drawing to IFC File

The Export Drawing to IFC File command is used to export all of the 3D-BIM elements from the current drawing to an IFC file. The IFC file can be read into other programs, such as Revit and Navisworks, for 3D collision detection.

If you export to an IFC file that does not exist, it will be created with the 3D-BIM elements from the current drawing.

If you export to an IFC file that exists, but does not contain any 3D-BIM elements from the current drawing, the 3D-BIM elements from the current drawing will be appended to the end of the IFC file.

If you export to an IFC file that exists, and contains 3D-BIM elements from the current drawing, the existing 3D-BIM elements in the IFC file will be removed and replaced with the current 3D-BIM elements in the drawing.

To export the current drawing to an IFC file, go to

DM HVAC->3D-BIM->Export Drawing to IFC File

Save IFC File As Dialog Box

3D-BIM--Save IFC File As dialog box

Enter a name and location for the IFC file, then press the Save button. The current drawing will be saved to the IFC file.
