Notes on support for Extended FMHandOverView

Revit IFC Support for Extended FMHandOverView Definition

Starting from v2.17 of 2013 IFC exporter and v3.9 of 2014 IFC export, new features have been added to enable compliance to the Extended FMHandOverView Definition, allowing uses to generate better COBie data from their IFC files. Not all the additional support built into Revit IFC export is specific to Extended FMHandOverView alone.

Please see the attached documents below for more information.

    This zip file contains three text files:
    1. COBie Extension Shared Parameters.txt: These are the shared parameters used to maximally extract COBie data.
    2. IFC2x3 Extended FMHandoverView.txt: This file contains the custom property sets exported with the Extended FMHandoverView. It can also be used as a template to create your own custom property set definitions.
    3. Revit-exportlayers-ifc2x3-forCOBie.txt: This is an updated export layers table file. It is intended primarily for COBie, but can be used for any export. It would replace your existing export layers table file.

    The original IFC2x3 Extended FMHandoverView.txt had a small typo in the definition that prevented the export of Pset_ManufacturerOccurence. This attachment fixes that error.

    Iv'e followed all the steps given in the notes but when I try to export the IFC2x3 Extended FMHandoverView it causes Revit to close without warning. Any ideas?

    Does regular export work? If not, please send a link to your Revit file to and we'll take a look.
