In IFC Split 1.3.0, you can export items from an IFC model while giving a new value to the “Project Name” property (Location> Project> “Project Name”).
The new functionality was created as a response to the needs of BIMvision Users.
Adding this option made it possible to implement the entire workflow, using various plugins and their functionalities. Thanks to such a development of the plugin, the sequence of operations leading to the expected effect was significantly shortened, which translated into faster results of work in BIMvision. The new option is the possibility of even more in-depth control and identification of the separated objects.
In the case of one of our clients, the introduced functionality made it possible to extract assembly sets from the IFC file of the entire structure, and then work with individual groups of elements using the introduced – updated project name.
Thanks to the introduction of such identification data for individual exported groups of elements – the entered information “Project name” can be used in further work with the created IFC files.
Simultaneous opening of separated files (Multifile *) with individual “project names” of IFC models is enabled by this property. The characteristic value of the property (entered by us at the export stage) is the same for all elements, so it can be used as a way to indicate or search for objects using other plugins, such as Advanced Reports.
Of course, you don’t always need to specify and enter a new value for “Project Name”. If you export items without checking the name update option (Update project name), the value of the “Project Name” property will be exactly the same as it was in the original source file.
To learn more about the new features, please check the help file for the IFC Split plugin and test the new features in practice.
