Test on Running an IFC Based Clash Detection using Revit

I tried this and it is not a pleasant process.
Català - Castellano - Deutsch
So on the series of quick testing clash detection features using IFC files, I decided to give it a try with Revit since it has an Interference Check function. What I learned from the test is that it is not the right software to do this (specially having free alternatives like Tekla BIMSight). Anyways here is the quick video on the process and below a short description of the steps. If you want to skip this one, feel free, summary is, I wouldn't use Revit to do this.

So this is the quick summary of the process. Since Revit can not link IFCs, you actually need to do the following:
  1. Open ifc file A
  2. Save As Revit File A
  3. Open IFC File B
  4. Link Revit File A in it
  5. Run the interference check
On top of this, the default visualization features of the interference check in Revit are awful (you basically have a hard time finding the elements visually. So as I said, nice try but to me this is a no go.

  1. Aiming at the inconvenience during model checking, we launched our product: Gloden BIM Check.
    In this way afterwards when you need to browse, check model after Revit and Magicad finish modeling, you can directly import the finished models into BIM Check. You can make 3D model rendering, browsing, clash check and standard inspection, or derive image-text report.
    The software is very easy to operate. We are confident that after importing models, you will be amazed at your flexible use without any tutorial.
    PS: It's FREE, http://gmc.fwxgx.com/showIndex
