Description

Imports IFC Library of objects.
FUNCTION IFC_ImportLibrary(
strFilePath  :STRING;
bKeepHierarchy  :BOOLEAN) : BOOLEAN;
def vs.IFC_ImportLibrary(strFilePath, bKeepHierarchy):
    return BOOLEAN

Parameters

strFilePath STRING Path to the Folder with IFC files
bKeepHierarchy BOOLEAN Boolean that determines whether the hierarchy of the library is preserved in the Symbol Folder hierarchy.

Remarks

This function is used when importing more than one IFC files simultaneously.

Please note that a Symbol Folder in the Resource Manager is created and every file is imported as a separate symbol. If the main folder contains a hierarchy of folders with more IFC files, the hierarchy can be conveyed in the Symbol Folder by setting bKeepHierarchy boolean to TRUE.

Example

VectorScript

PROCEDURE ImportLibrary;
VAR
        bKeepHierarchy : BOOLEAN
        bOK            : BOOLEAN
        strFilePath    : STRING
BEGIN
        {We suggest that the path to the library that contains the IFC files is "D:\Files\IFCLibrary"}
        bKeepHierarchy := TRUE;
        strFilePath    := "D:\Files\IFCLibrary";
	bOK            := IFC_ImportLibrary( strFilePath, bKeepHierarchy );
END;

RUN(ImportLibrary);

Python

# We suggest that the path to the library that contains the IFC files is "D:\Files\IFCLibrary"
ok = vs.IFC_ImportLibrary( "D:\Files\IFCLibrary", true );
