IFC entities imported in the “Automatic introduction IFC” process in CYPE 3D

CYPE 3D allows information contained in IFC files to be imported through the “Automatic introduction IFC” option available when creating a “New job”:

The IFC entities containing information that can be read by CYPE 3D are the following:

ModelIFCSTRUCTURALANALYSISMODEL
NodesIFCSTRUCTURALPOINTCONNECTION
Bars (with defined sections)IFCSTRUCTURALCURVEMEMBER
Boundary conditionsIFCBOUNDARYNODECONDITION
Node and bar ratiosIFCRELCONNECTSWITHECCENTRICITY / IFCRELCONNECTSSTRUCTURALMEMBER

These entities correspond to structural analysis models and not to physical models. If the selected IFC file does not contain these IFC entities, CYPE 3D will not be able to generate any information after the import process. If this is the case, examine the options available in the program used to create the IFC to be able to incorporate the information into the IFC entities mentioned.
