Blog post about IFC Mapping
In a previous post, Nathan Hildebrandt of Fulton Trotter Architects listed IFC Mapping as his top feature in ArchiCAD 18. IFC Mapping enables users to manipulate the data that is native in ArchiCAD and use it in an almost infinite number of ways either internally in ArchiCAD as part of data representation or to export customized data to OPEN BIM IFC. In this post, Nathan demonstrates the greater potential of the feature and relevance it can have to all users. According to Nathan, IFC Mapping will significantly improve your coordination capability between your model and the notes / schedules you want to associate with it.
