Creating New Category in Visualarq

Dear all,

Does anyone know how to create a new category such as ‘ceiling’ in Visualarq. Apparently I’m using the roof category to create my ceiling…so when I export the IFC format, in Revit it name the component as Roof…so I wonder is there a way to create ceiling category…


Hi @rmsbproject,

VisualARQ currently does not have a “Ceiling” object.

Anyway, as far as I know, Revit cannot import ceilings from IFC. I tried to create a ceiling in Revit, export the whole model to IFC, and imported it back again, and the ceiling was just a “Generic model”. So adding the “Ceiling” object in VisualARQ will not be enough to solve your issue.
