Workflow: Surface to IFC

Post by Hobbitfoot » Thu Feb 15, 2018 9:47 am

I'm have a scan in cyclone of a surface which needs to be given to the client as an IFC. How do I take either the point cloud or the meshed surface and convert it to some sort of IFC format.
I have tried using civil 3d but the mesh ends up in feet when teated in Revit. The next option was to try Revit but again the object is not a solid so therefore not useable.
Is there a solid export option in cyclone that I'm missing. Normally I would contour the surface and bring those contours into Revit but in this case the vertical surfaces on the mesh make building an accurate surface in Revit impossible. Ideas?

i did some googling and found this ... -p/6241039

although, a meshed IFC is going to be HUGE in file size.
