Vabi IFC Layer files

If the IFC export does not work. For example, because the class structure of the layers is incorrect, or because it is not possible to set the IFC Options correctly, standard IFC layer files can be used. Vabi has created three layer files especially for the IFC export from Autodesk Revit to Vabi Elements. These text files can be read into Autodesk Revit, so that the IFC export options for Autodesk Revit are immediately correct.

  • If you want to export the Rooms, choose the file txt.
  • If you want to export the Spaces, choose the file txt.
  • If you want to export the Areas, choose the file txt.

Please note: Rooms, Spaces and Areas cannot be exported at the same time in an IFC.

Installing the IFC layer file in Autodesk Revit:

  1. Click file > export > options > IFC options. See Figure 43. A new window will appear “IFC export classes”. See Figure 44.
  2. Click on Load…
  3. Select one of the above files.
  4. Click Open
  5. Click OK
