convert IFC to native object
05.12.2013 18:25

When bring in an IFC as a reference object, it comes in just fine, but when i try to convert it to a native object things go haywire. Objects somehow get rotated/skewed, their position changes, and moved all together.
For instance, if i bring in a truss and convert it to a native object, the top horizontal purlins will stay put, but the angles on the top chord move in the Z axis, and the angles on the sides get a funny rotation about them.
Is there any way to avoid this, or does the IFC 2 just not contain enough information? And does the color of the truss after I convert it to a native object mean anything?

Sometimes the input data in the IFC model is not adequate to successfully create the converted object, and that might be the reason in this case. To find out the status of the converted objects, it would be a good idea to create a report of the converted objects. In the report you can find the Class value of objects.

For instructions how to create the report and interpret Class values in the results, go to Tekla User Assistance: http://teklastructures.support.tekla.com/190/en/int_creating_reports_of_converted_ifc_objects
