How to create Custom IFC PSet ?
PSets are custom property sets which can be created and used as per project requirement. To add user defined PSETS to catalog types, first you need to create,
After adding the userdefined psets in the DataGroupSystem folder, it needs to be assigned to the Catalog Types in the Catalog Editor before it can be used in the model. In the Catalog Editor, there are two ways to add the userdefined pset definition. It can be added either using Definition Usage or Catalog Items.
A. ADDING USERDEFINED PSETS THROUGH DEFINITION USAGE
B. ADDING USERDEFINED PSETS THROUGH CATALOG ITEMS
I would also like to add, before going to add custom pset, WORKSET configuration should be checked priorly. The template's default setting excludes psets from the IFC configuration. The cfg file must be configured to expand the template's IFC Dataset. The worksets folder contains the CFG file. An example of a folder link is shown below. C:\ProgramData\Bentley\OpenBuildingsCONNECTEdition\Configuration\WorkSpaces\Building_Examples\worksets
1. Open the CFG file of the new workset with Notepad or any text editor app.
2.Scroll down and look for IFC Dataset Extension.
3.Change the value of IFC_WORKSET to 1 to enable the psets in the template.
4.Save the cfg file.
