Anyone having a step by step instruction on how to work through IFC import/export on projects where some are using Revit and other BricsCAD V16? I guess the first step should be to make sure that the Revit users have installed the latest version of Revit IFC Exporter.
BIM is rather new in most ares of the Middle East. For many the announcement by Dubai Municipality, that "BIM has to be used on certain type of projects", have created great confusion. Autodesk Dealers are using this confusion to point out that Revit = BIM, and sell Revit licenses and training the best they can.
I have a large potential client working on a project where Revit/BIM is being used. They don't want to buy new Revit licenses and rather want to invest in BricSCAD V16 Platinum, but I don't have the necessary experience to guide them through the process of using IFC import/export in this information exchange process. They have tested IFC import to BricsCAD but claim that some information in the model is missing compared to in Revit. I guess that might be due to the way the information is exported from Revit and maybe also that the latest version of Revit IFC Exporter is not installed.
Any step by step instruction or guidance related to the IFC process will be very much appreciated.
