Detailed Description

IFC file format importer.

This module provides tools to import IFC files.

Function Documentation

◆ export()

def importIFC.export (   exportList,
  colors = None,
  preferences = None 
Export the selected objects to IFC format.

The export code is now in a separate module; this call is retained
in this module for compatibility purposes with older scripts.

References exportIFC.export().

◆ getPreferences()

def importIFC.getPreferences ( )
Retrieve the IFC preferences available in import and export.

    0 = parametric arch objects
    1 = non-parametric arch objects
    2 = Part shapes
    3 = One compound per storey

◆ insert()

def importIFC.insert (   srcfile,
  skip = [],
  only = [],
  root = None,
  preferences = None 
Import the contents of an IFC file in the current active document.

TODO: change the default argument to `None`, instead of `[]`.
This is better because lists are mutable.

skip: list
    By default empty list `[]`.
    Can contain a list of ids of objects to be skipped.

only: list
    By default, empty list `[]`.
    Restrict the import to certain object ids; it will also
    get their children.

root: object
    It is used to import only the derivates of a certain element type,
    for example, `'ifcProduct'

◆ open()

def (   filename,
  skip = [],
  only = [],
  root = None 
Open an IFC file inside a new document.

TODO: change the default argument to `None`, instead of `[]`.
This is better because lists are mutable.

Most of the work is done in the `insert` function.
