Optimal settings for Ifc Export from Revit Modified on: Mon, 1 Feb, 2021 at 8:23 PM

Q. What are the optimal Ifc Export settings in Revit for creating an Ifc model File to import to dRofus?


A. 

These are the export settings that I find produce a reasonable Ifc model.

  • I usually export from a 3D view with all visible and define for "in session settings"

  • I use the IFC 2x3 Coordination View version 

  • Next tab, ensure that Rooms are exported

  • Make sure you export the Revit Property sets as well if you want to capture Revit Parameters in your Ifc Model

  • Set detail to High or Medium for larger models

  • Check most or all boxes in this tab


The resulting Ifc Model should contain the Rooms as "Spaces" in the Ifc Model
