Check Values

Overview

This module is where you start with populating your IFC-SG parameters with the required values.

You may chose to view objects and fill in values as required. Or you may use the ONE click automatic filling up with default values

Defining IFC-SG parameters is only part of the requirements.

You need to populate the parameters with some values for them to be able to be exported out in IFC format.

This module helps you achieve this automatically with ONE click!

This is the ONE click you need to populate the IFC-SG parameters with some default values

This lists out all the objects in the project and enables you to manually fill in your preferred values.

This is a Cancel command

Option 1: Populate IFC-SG Default Parameters Value

This option will automatically populate your IFC-SG parameters with default values.

The current version is based on the 300 ruleset released by GovTech for Beta Testing. These 300 rulesets are still in development and some of the parameters and values have not been finalised. As such you may see some discrepancies. We would most appreciate it if you could report this to us using the “Comments” section below. Together we can make this initiative more effective.

Option 2: Open element list

This option lists out a summary of objects in your projects that do not have all the values for the IFC-SG Parameters. You can then decide to define the values as required.

Click on Option 1
