Dear Synchro Support Team
I want to import the 3D model originated from Revit 2023. As there’s still no Revit 2023 to Synchro plugin available to use, then we’re using IFC file as the 3D model.
However, IFC model has its own disadvantages, such as geometrical appearance that does not seemed to be correct (Figure 1)
So, we tried to develop another method to import the 3D model. We used Revit 2020 version to open the IFC model from Revit 2023 version, and then we’re using Synchro Plugin to directly create a Synchro .spx file.
But as we successfully load the model, the Activity ID and some user parameters that we already bind in the model gone missing. (Figure 2)
Mind that we already input the Activity ID as parameter in the Revit model for task auto-assign purpose and filled them correctly. (Figure 3)
By this issue, I would like to ask if you have a solution to this one and keep the parameters from the model loaded correctly as a .spx file.
Thanks in advance
Instead of relying on so many format conversions, I will strongly recommend exploring creating iModels using iTwin Connectors -
Create iModel from iTwin File Service (Control Documents)
In your current workflow, there is a lot of potential for losing the model and data fidelity. Still, I got no issues importing any parameters upon testing with 2022. The screenshot of the properties you shared is from an IFC Viewer.
Have you confirmed if those properties were imported in Revit 2020 as well?
Regarding IFC direct import having issues with geometric issues, is the model geolocated? If yes, try moving it closer to the origin in Revit before exporting the IFC and see if that helps. When I try selecting a 3D Objects through mouse left-click, it doesn't always select the object and/or shifts the geometry if selected.
Also, make sure you are using DirectX 11 driver mode (Options > 3D View > Advanced > Driver).
