      You’ve discovered 2 weak spots in BIM, as I see it. Most of the surgoundinrs of an object under study will never be described in 3D. What is readily available is GIS, describing the attributes of the environment as well as the physical form.The other GIS-theme is zooming in/out: no one is interested in all the rivets of a city district, and in an early phase of design, no one has even thought about them. How does BIM handle this?Please keep us updated on the progress of your application. Let’s discuss this and learn from (urban) spatial planning.

    I wouldn’t use Revit 2010 to vfiery your IFC export. Instead, you’d be better of using either the Solibri Model Checker/Viewer or the FZKViewer . These are meant to be IFC validation tools, unlike Revit, which is another BIM authoring tool. It still has a ways to go, also, to meet the requirements for IFC 2 3 Certification 2.0. .But we’d be happy to have you test against Vectorworks Architect, too. Your best course of action would be to pursue joining the certification effort so you can gain access to the developer resources currently underway for this effort. These resources include testing instructions for various elements, expertise consultation from buildingSMART technical experts and application development peers, as well as the IFC model testing platform available to participants only.Best Regards,Jeffrey W.
