Hotlink IFC

Link IFC files as hotlinks directly into the currently open Project as protected reference content.

Use the Model Filter to narrow the placed IFC reference content – for example, by categories (structural or MEP), stories, layers, element types or element selection.

Elements of a linked IFC module are included in the host Project: even if the linked IFC source file is not currently available, the module is still present and visible.

Inserted IFC model content can be updated easily from the linked source file. If the link is broken, elements of the inserted IFC modules can be edited as regular ARCHICAD elements.

Collision detection works for linked IFC module elements too.
