I got an IFCexport from Revit and hoped to turn off one floor slab to expose the storey below with walls an some details.
Unfortunately all floor slabs in a Revit model is exported to same ustn-level.
Anyone know of some trick I can tip the Revit guys so the export puts the different floor slabs in different ustn-levels.
(thought I posted this a few hours ago - if the appearance is delayed - sorry for taking bandwidth)
Is my wording above correct 'in' a ustn-level but 'on' a level in a building?
Haven't tried that yet, but try to create a group which includes all elements, and then remove the objects you don't want to see. Now make a building view of that.
Sure Andreas, same part, dgs and ustn-level. But in ABD in different Models.
So I can turn off display for a slab in floor 2 to see floor 1 below. Or make floor 2 transparent.
In the ifc I've got all floor slabs are on same level.
But I discovered that the setting 'Ignore Story Containment' -if off- splits the geometry to separate files!
So, if the Revit file is done with correct settings, it seems I get what I want.

The defect states it was fixed in MicroStation build 126.96.36.1998 so it should be resolved in ABD .747. Just to be sure... browse to your C:\Program Files (x86)\Bentley\AECOsimBuildingDesigner V8i Ss5\AECOsimBuildingDesigner folder, right-click on the ustation.dll file and choose properties - what's the build number in the Details tab?
That one has 08.11.09.584.
