What is the agenda?

How to Do Revit to IFC Properly by Kevin Fielding of Sheppard Robson

Do you need to share IFC files on your project? If so, this is an essential session for you. We will explore the importance of interoperability from Revit using IFC. Using the IFC Exporter Plugin, we will explore all the hidden settings, controls, and tricks to give you the confidence, and control as to what information appears in the IFC. You will control Rooms, Space, IFC Classes, and Zone. Not all IFC exports are equal.

Registration Information and Form

MRUG operates a registration process that tries to ensure that we can accommodate everybody that wishes to attend.

Airline Style Check In You will be required on the Monday or Tuesday of the week of the meeting to “check in”. This is done by simply replying to the check in request email that will be sent at this time. Therefore it is important that you check your email address when entering. This will generate your joining details. If you do not check in by Wednesday morning, you risk losing your place to somebody on the waiting list. This is very much like booking a flight and then checking in on-line before the flight. This is to reduce the drop out list and free up spaces for waiting list people. Check in will remain open as long as places remain.

One No Show, one Suspension Regardless of reason, if you register and check in and do not turn up, you will be unable to attend the next meeting. After this, you will be considered only within the “General Registration”, and not as a previous attendee until you have attended two more meetings.

MRUG is free to attend. Everybody must register including previous attendees. First come, first served. Capacity of this event is 80. AEC organisations only.
