facet quality in IFC export

Using AECOsim v8i ss6, I have mesh curved (faceted) surfaces originally imported from ACAD file, which are now cells with data assigned.

When I export to ifc using optimum setting the smooth curved elements export with crude results.

Does anyone know if there is a way to improve facet quality?

Thanks in advance

  • Hi Stephen,

    Do you get better results if you export to IFC 4? SS6 has our initial technology preview of IFC 4 export that offers better support for faceted geometry. CONNECT Edition contains more recent implementations of IFC 4 (we are still working towards certification for IFC 4 in CONNECT Edition).

    To test this I would recommend referencing your SS6 model into a new CONNECT Edition file, don't open it in CONNECT. (Migration forward to CONNECT Edition needs to be carried out in a planned manner.)
