Bimify will not find structural shapes on ifc import

Does anyone else have this problem. I'm hoping its something I'm just not understanding about bimify.

We import a lot of ifc structural models. When the model comes in and we run bimify on it the structural shapes are not assigned to the appropriate profile. They are given a user designation and sizes in metric. The drawing and import are never in metric at any point.

Is there a way to get bricscad to force a harder compare at the database and get it to assign the correct structural profile instead of just a user defined section?

I have attached a screen shot of the profile and the info panel showing the results after bimify.


  • hi Fossa,
    bimify will use a profile that fits if it finds it in the library. Small differences between imported geometry and profile definition can result in a mismatch.
    However it is easy to quickly select all similar profiles in the structure browser and reassign the appropriate profile if you want to.
    You can use the attached structure configuration file to sort all entities first by profile. (copy the file in your support folder, then it is accessible in the structure browser, 3 dots, select configuration)
