Importing IFC Files

Please oh please can we get the ability to import IFC files and manage/ filter/ disable certain layers or objects just like we can with DWG's?


I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't want to go to the expense of getting revit and! Elumtools just to make it easier for doing renders or even accurate design of facades, bridges and landscape lighting.


I get lots of projects where Architects are more than happy to send an IFC file of the project, but then I have to use 2 different pieces of software to edit and convert it in order to import a super simplified version in to AGI32 that then loses all the colour and transparency properties.


While your at it, can we improve the overall performance to limit crashing, 6 story building should be simple enough to have multiple DWG's per floor plus sections etc...


Thanks,

Josh

I’d never come across IFC before this post, but reading up on it I think it’s a fair question to ask. It gets my vote.
