Void cutout according to IFC Linked model


At the moment I’m experimenting with python scripts to automatically placing voids in the wall where the intersection is with a steel beam. It still has some problems when running the script:

  • The voids are placed (almost correct) on the intersections. Some of them need to be rotated.
  • When the void is placed it doesn’t cut with the wall, still have to manually cut it.

Can someone help me out? I really have the feeling I’m close to the solution but I’m still missing something or I’m doing something wrong.


I couldn’t upload the IFC file here so in the link below there is a wetransfer link with the 3 files: .dyn, .rvt, .IFC

Best regards,
