I am using AECOSim CONNECT Update 3 to export mesh data from DGN (OpenRoads Designer data) to IFC. I can get exports out in the format I need except that all data is a single grey "Generic" colour.
The elements have colours and materials attached. Is there any way to get any of these exported to IFC?
Could you please share some screenshot of DGN file and the IFC file.
Turns out to be an issue with Navisworks - IFC looks perfect in Microstation Platform products and Solibri, but has no colours and is even distorted in Navisworks 2018.

Go to the Navisworks Options > File Reader > IFC and uncheck the Revit IFC button.
Thanks Stefan, that fixed the distortion but still no colours
did you Exit Navisworks and load the ifc-file after uncheckng the revit-ifc Button ?
Because the nwc-file thats being converted from the ifc-model loading has to be rebuild with the new Settings.
Yep, it resolved the distortion issue but not the colours.
Hi, I am working on similar issue. Output IFC has only generic/grey colour. Do you have some idea how to solve it? Thanks
