Parameter table

The parameter table is located below the component tree and displays a table with the parameters of the individual element selected in the component tree or directly on the model.

The list of parameters depends on the "IfcPropertySet" and "IfcQuantitySet" defined in the IFC files imported to the job:

  • Properties or IfcPropertySet: These are alphanumeric data and guarantee the identification of the entities and the obtaining of information to create filters.
  • Quantities or IfcQuantitySet: These are numerical data (length, width, height, area, volume, weight, etc.) that allow quantities to be extracted with the rules of measurement created in the sets of measurement rules.
Best practice:
The model components must be assigned to the correct entity, as this will assign (and display) certain quantities, which allows appropriate rules of measurement to be established.
