Reading the edges defined in the IFC model

The “Use the edges defined in the IFC model” option has been added to the configuration panel for the automatic generation process of the analytical model. When activated, instead of detecting the edges of the analytical model from the generated analytical surfaces, the edge definition of the geometric model will be used directly when available. In order to use this method, users must first select the “Use the outlines of the spaces defined in the IFC model” option.

The IFC Builder application currently exports the edges of its geometric model in the standard IFC format. Thanks to this new feature, all the analytical information generated by both tools can be read in Open BIM Analytical Model.
