Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Re: IFC>IDF problems


Thanks, this has helped me identify the problem.  ADT does not 
automatically add some of the IFC object instances that IFCtoIDF expects 
(e.g., IfcSite).  It is a challenge to develop middleware when the 
software tools on either side are constantly changing.  I will need to 
modify the IFCtoIDF to deal with these missing objects as best as possible.

I will send out a notice when I have corrected these problems.
