Room Extents Correct SPIRAL GRID IFC...What is it??? IFC is a standard for building information models, not for drawings. It enables exchange of information about building structures, elements, spaces and other objects in a BIM. Model View Definitions Special exports are based on a view definition that determines the scope of the IFC exchange.

Model View Definition (MVD) defines a subset of the IFC schema that is needed to satisfy one or many exchange requirements based on an IDM what do you want to see? COORDINTATION VIEW STRUCT. ANALYSIS VIEW FM HANDOVER
VIEW (COBIE) What's included?? depends on MVD
3D and 2D geometry
properties and attributes
relationships, connectivity IFC MODEL SERVER PROGRAM

PLM for buildings Autodesk Open Source Exporter Preparing for IFC Export (Revit) Use “2D plan view elements” for grids and room info Preparing for IFC Export (Revit) In non system families, use IfcExportAs to customize export
Consult wikihelp.autodesk.com/Revit Preparing for IFC Export (Revit) Download and install newer IFC exporter
http://sourceforge.net/p/ifcexporter/ Preparing for IFC Export (Revit) From Application menu, select IFC Export Settings
You can assign Revit object categories to IFC schema Best Option for IFC export at the moment

BIMsight Revit BE OPEN!! THANK YOU!! ????? Information Delivery Manual how is it supposed to work? methodology to capture and specify processes and information flow for a specific use case Beyond Simple Clash Tests Human Readable Beams fit within
architectural walls? Do the arch columns completely contain the structural columns? BIM Validation Are walls sensible dimensions?? Curb as wall?!? Space is below sensible square footage. Tiny JC Does this make sense??? FREE!! Deficiency Detection Column Does not touch above or below. Beams supported by...air? ADA compliance Not enough room for turning radius two door in a series Life Safety All routes to exits Max distance to exit PRACTICAL IFC USE!! Complex Design Data: Why recreate it? IFC allows analysis to inform design earlier! IFC opens up powerful coordination tools IFC enables collaboration IFC Editor
