IFC Category Mapping

IFC Category Mapping

An IFC Category mapping file (.txt) allows you to specify how IFC Object Classes will be defined into Revit categories when being imported into Revit.

The importer allow you to import a selected file from your computer or generate a predefined Geometry Gym file which you can then select. The path to the mapping file which will be used is shown in the path section.

An example of a generated file is shown below:
