Users are experiencing many failures when exporting to COBie. Users are getting mixed results from several machines when trying to produce a COBie spreadsheet. When a file is opened from ProjectWise on two separate computers to create the COBie export, one computer creates the export and the second computer fails, a third computer also seems to push out further error messages. Results ranged from not being able to produce an IFC file to not being able to produce (a blank) COBie spreadsheet.
Steps to Resolve
Steps taken to rectify the problems:
At this point the user indicated that they needed to produce a COBie spreadsheet for a tunnel lining with xyz co-ordinates. The user was informed that the current datagroup and Family and Part assignment for the models were excluded from the COBie definition and thus would not appear in the spreadsheet.
Some of the current Family and Part definitions were remapped to IFC elements that would be included in a COBie spreadsheet such as IFC flow terminal as result of the IFC_COBiemapping.set file.
The following recommendations were made to remove all existing ODBC drivers from machines and install the version that came with the installed AECOsim Building Designer build and to ensure that UAC was set to Never Notify during installation.
