Export One Area to IFC File

The Export One Area to IFC File command is used to export all of the 3D-BIM elements from a single alignment point area 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 selected alignment point area, the 3D-BIM elements from the selected alignment point area 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 selected alignment point area, the existing 3D-BIM elements in the IFC file will be removed and replaced with the current 3D-BIM elements in the selected alignment point area.

To export a single alignment point area to an IFC file, go to

DM HVAC->3D-BIM->Export One Area to IFC File

You will be prompted to identify the area to be exported.

Select point inside area to be exported:

Click on a point inside the area to be exported. The Save IFC File As dialog box will appear

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 selected alignment point area will be saved to the IFC file.
