An examination of IFC-exports from Tekla Structures (English)
Abstract [sv]

Idag tillämpas BIM (Building Information Modeling) som ett ledande verktyg inom byggprojektering och möjliggör lösningar som är hållbara och optimerade mellan olika discipliner för att effektivt hantera informationsflöden. Vid överföring av data mellan programvaror används ett neutralt filformat, IFC (Industry Foundation Classes). Detta filformat exporteras från 3Dmodelleringsprogrammet Tekla Structures. Syftet med detta examensarbete är att granska orsaken till saknad information vid IFC-export från Tekla Structures. Studien innefattar en fallstudie, komparativ studie samt intervjuer. I fallstudien studeras inställningarna för en IFC-export från en komplex modell i Tekla Structures. Den komparativa studien berör två samordningsprogram Solibri Model Checker och Navisworks Manage, som sedan ställs mot varandra. Det som undersöks är hur IFC-filer lämpar sig i samordningsprogrammen. Intervjuerna har legat till grund och har gett tydliga riktlinjer under arbetets gång. Resultatet av denna studie tyder på att orsakerna kring saknad information i IFC-filer är den mänskliga faktorn och bristande kunskaper av inställningarna i en IFC-export. Ytterligare resultat är jämförelsen mellan samordningsprogrammen som visar att båda är lämpade för IFC-formatet. Genom den komparativa studien har det visat att Solibri lämpar sig bättre för IFC-exporter från Tekla Structures. Med hänsyn till examensarbetets resultat är den mänskliga faktorn avgörande för informationsförluster. Den mänskliga faktorn utgör att det råder bristande kommunikation samt bristande kunskap om IFC-exporter.

Abstract [en]

Today, BIM (Building Information Modeling) is applied as a leading tool in structural design and modeling and enables solutions that are sustainable and optimized between different disciplines to effectively manage information flows. In connection with transfers between software’s a neutral file format, IFC (Industry Foundation Classes), is used. This file format is exported from the 3D-modeling program Tekla Structures. The purpose of this thesis is to examine the reason for missing information on IFC exports from Tekla Structures. The study includes a case study, comparative study and interviews In the case study, the settings for an IFC- export are studied from a complex 3D- model in Tekla Structures. The comparative study concerns two coordination programs Solibri Model Checker and Navisworks Manage, which are compared against each other. What is examined is how IFC- files are suitable in the coordination programs. The interviews have given clear guidelines during the work. The results indicate that the causes of missing information in IFC -files are the human factor and the lack of knowledge of the settings of an IFC- export. Additional to the results that was achieved are the comparison between the coordination programs shows that both programs are suitable for the IFCformat. The difference between the coordination programs is how one of them signalized the format better than the other Regarding the results, the human factor is crucial for the information loss. The human factor has shown that the lack of communication and knowledge of IFC- exports is a reason for the information loss. Through the comparative study, it has also been shown that Solibri is better suited for IFCexports from Tekla Structures.
