Today I will try to answer some common questions asked by Revit MEP users. Here are a few examples of questions that we receive from time to time:
Question #1: It sees on the web page that Cut Opening Pro Supports IFC Ducts and Pipes, but is it Supporting IFC Ducts, Pipes and Cable, coming from (Made by) AutoCAD Architecture, and MagiCAD as application for pipes and Cable? I’m in a big mess with many holes for Ducts, Pipes and Cable to cut out into buildings, I while use a very long time to do this manually for every Ducts, Pipes and Cable.
Question #2: I have received a file from a MEP user that I want to make cutouts for in the structural Revit model. However he is providing his model in the IFC format that I have opened in Revit and saved as a Revit-file. Is it in any way possible to use your software, Cut Opening, in this instance? It seems as if the IFC-geometry defaults to generic models in the Revit-version and I guess “Cut Opening” can’t use this?
Yes, I want to tell you that using BIM solution for Revit Cut Opening Pro you can create openings around Pipes, Ducts, Cable Trays and Conduits that come from IFC file format. Please find the steps below those describe how to cut openings according to IFC:
