Due to work process we have to export a lot of projects from Revit to IFC and import IFC files from another software (or another versions of Revit) to Revit. We receive elements with the categories: IfcDuctSegmentType, IfcPipeSegmentType. We have tried to use different types of import (revit onboard, archicad connection, etc), and have recieved the same result.

The question is how to import these elements in Revit not as Generic models, but as Ducts and Pipes? Maybe there is another way of exporting these elements to IFC so Revit can recognize them as ducts and pipes?

Revit doesn't get along well with anything to be honest. Especially IFC files.  Next time set contract requirements that all project users use Revit.

I agree with Beau 101 %. I cannot emphasize enough that REVIT projects should be declared right from the get-go it's ALL REVIT (same version) and a must be for success. The problem is the people at the top don't understand this because they're used to CAD and the DWG being pretty much compadible with anything. Our projects are 100% REVIT other than Civil 3D.


If there is absolutely no way to make the project 100% REVIT then the stake holders need to completely understand that doing so comes at a very high price and takes a serious hit to the quality of the deliverables.


Most large firms now have a 'No CAD / No IFC' policy on all REVIT projects.
