VisualARQ - Import IFC Property Attributes


is there some other property attribute than name which could be imported from IFC to Rhino using VisuaARQ?

I would need to get the at least an ID and one additional attribute of each model item.


Hi @ma.lo you can see all the object properties from imported an IFC file from the Parameters icon, in the Properties panel:

This is a new feature of VisualARQ 2, so make sure you have the last version.

Unfortunately so far it is not possible to get the object ID FROM ifc files. I’ll let you know when we make it checkeable.

Great News!!

Is it possible to acces those atributes programatically with a Python script?

If yes, how? Do you have some documentation?

Thanks, Martin

Martin, it is not possible right now. We need to make some adjustments to make it possible, so I’ll keep you posted.



This feature is super important.

It’s nice to see the attributes but if you work with large models and can’t work with the metadata programmatically it doesn’t bring much.

Hello, any progress with the pragmatically accessible attributes? Thanks, Martin

Hi Martin, no news about this development yet. I’ll keep this thread posted when there are an news on this topic.

Any updates on this? It is 4 years ago and I also need this function.

Found you can actually get this using a combination of Dynamic Geometry pipeline form Human and Get property Value from VisualARQ. So now my problem i slowed

Hi Anders,
You can use a Property Names component, to see all object parameters, and a Get Property value to obtain their corresponding values.

I’m not sure if the Human’s Dynamic pipeline component will identify the VisualARQ objects though. You can use a VisualARQ Pipeline component for that.

The biggest problem is that the IFC file is not made with the right specifications, so VisualARQ does not recognize the objects
