Today the Dutch Revit user group (RevitGG) released the latest version of the Dutch Revit Standard. With some help of Martijn de Riet and Autodesk I’ve developed a modification to the IFC Exporter for Revit. It will now be possible to make a mapping file to map Revit parameters to the IFC properties. A mapping file looks like this:
1 2 3 4 5
The Revit parameter ‘fire_rating’ will be assigned to the ‘FireRating’ IFC property for a wall. With the Dutch standard combined with my modification to the exporter, the only thing left to do is to make a default mapping file for the Dutch Revit Standard to create a full workflow from Revit model to IFC model all within the Dutch Revit Standard. The first standardized workflow from Revit to IFC in the world!
Later today Autodesk will release a beta version with the new functionality included.
Update: Beta is online now!
