Facing orientation of IFC doors

Hello everybody!

Do you know if there is a way to get the facing orientation of IFC doors? I already used the node familyInstance.FacingOrientation from the Bakery package, but it only works properly for Revit elements.

Thank you very much in advance

Afaik it’s not possible, ifc doesn’t have the concept of faces and hosts. For doors there is a parameter IfcDoorStyle.OperationType, if this is filled you can read this with the regular parameterValuByName node. It’s a type parameter, not instance. This shows up as an “Orientation” parameter in Revit.



If you work with ifc files in revit, install the official ifc addon, if this is installed every parameters will be imported to revit. Download from the store, or from sourceforge: https://apps.autodesk.com/RVT/en/List/Search?isAppSearch=True&searchboxstore=RVT&facet=&collection=&sort=&query=ifc
