Entity definition

IfcBuildingElementProxyType defines a list of commonly shared property set definitions of a building element proxy and an optional set of product representations. It is used to define an element specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type).

NOTE  The product representations are defined as representation maps (at the level of the supertype IfcTypeProduct, which gets assigned by an element occurrence instance through the IfcShapeRepresentation.Item[1] being an IfcMappedItem.

A building element proxy type is used to define the common properties of a certain type of a building element proxy that may be applied to many instances of that type to assign a specific style. Building element proxy types may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences.

NOTE  Although an building element proxy does not have a predefined ontological meaning the provision of a type may be helpful in sharing information among multiple occurrences. Applications that provide type information for element types not yet included in the current IFC specification can use the IfcBuildingElementProxyType to exchange such types.

The occurrences of the IfcBuildingElementProxyType are represented by instances of IfcBuildingElementProxy.

HISTORY  New entity in IFC2x3.

#AttributeTypeCardinalityDescriptionG
IfcRoot
1GlobalIdIfcGloballyUniqueId Assignment of a globally unique identifier within the entire software world. X
2OwnerHistoryIfcOwnerHistory? Assignment of the information about the current ownership of that object, including owning actor, application, local identification and information captured about the recent changes of the object,
NOTE  only the last modification in stored - either as addition, deletion or modification.
IFC4 CHANGE  The attribute has been changed to be OPTIONAL.
X
3NameIfcLabel? Optional name for use by the participating software systems or users. For some subtypes of IfcRoot the insertion of the Name attribute may be required. This would be enforced by a where rule. X
4DescriptionIfcText? Optional description, provided for exchanging informative comments.X
IfcObjectDefinition
HasAssignmentsIfcRelAssigns
@RelatedObjects
S[0:?]Reference to the relationship objects, that assign (by an association relationship) other subtypes of IfcObject to this object instance. Examples are the association to products, processes, controls, resources or groups.X
NestsIfcRelNests
@RelatedObjects
S[0:1]References to the decomposition relationship being a nesting. It determines that this object definition is a part within an ordered whole/part decomposition relationship. An object occurrence or type can only be part of a single decomposition (to allow hierarchical strutures only).
IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute datatype has been added and separated from Decomposes defined at IfcObjectDefinition.
X
IsNestedByIfcRelNests
@RelatingObject
S[0:?]References to the decomposition relationship being a nesting. It determines that this object definition is the whole within an ordered whole/part decomposition relationship. An object or object type can be nested by several other objects (occurrences or types).
IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute datatype has been added and separated from IsDecomposedBy defined at IfcObjectDefinition.
X
HasContextIfcRelDeclares
@RelatedDefinitions
S[0:1]References to the context providing context information such as project unit or representation context. It should only be asserted for the uppermost non-spatial object.
IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute datatype has been added.
X
IsDecomposedByIfcRelAggregates
@RelatingObject
S[0:?]References to the decomposition relationship being an aggregation. It determines that this object definition is whole within an unordered whole/part decomposition relationship. An object definitions can be aggregated by several other objects (occurrences or parts).
IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute datatype has been changed from the supertype IfcRelDecomposes to subtype IfcRelAggregates.
X
DecomposesIfcRelAggregates
@RelatedObjects
S[0:1]References to the decomposition relationship being an aggregation. It determines that this object definition is a part within an unordered whole/part decomposition relationship. An object definitions can only be part of a single decomposition (to allow hierarchical strutures only).
IFC4 CHANGE  The inverse attribute datatype has been changed from the supertype IfcRelDecomposes to subtype IfcRelAggregates.
X
HasAssociationsIfcRelAssociates
@RelatedObjects
S[0:?]Reference to the relationship objects, that associates external references or other resource definitions to the object.. Examples are the association to library, documentation or classification.X
IfcTypeObject
5ApplicableOccurrenceIfcIdentifier? The attribute optionally defines the data type of the occurrence object, to which the assigned type object can relate. If not present, no instruction is given to which occurrence object the type object is applicable. The following conventions are used:
  • The IFC entity name of the applicable occurrence using the IFC naming convention, CamelCase with IFC prefix
  • It can be optionally followed by the predefined type after the separator "/" (forward slash), using uppercase
  • If one type object is applicable to many occurrence objects, then those occurrence object names should be separate by comma "," forming a comma separated string.
EXAMPLE Refering to a furniture as applicable occurrence entity would be expressed as 'IfcFurnishingElement', refering to a brace as applicable entity would be expressed as 'IfcMember/BRACE', refering to a wall and wall standard case would be expressed as 'IfcWall, IfcWallStandardCase'.
X
6HasPropertySetsIfcPropertySetDefinition? S[1:?] Set list of unique property sets, that are associated with the object type and are common to all object occurrences referring to this object type.
IFC2x3 CHANGE  The attribute aggregate type has been changed from LIST to SET.
X
TypesIfcRelDefinesByType
@RelatingType
S[0:1]Reference to the relationship IfcRelDefinedByType and thus to those occurrence objects, which are defined by this type.X
IfcTypeProduct
7RepresentationMapsIfcRepresentationMap? L[1:?] List of unique representation maps. Each representation map describes a block definition of the shape of the product style. By providing more than one representation map, a multi-view block definition can be given.X
8TagIfcLabel? The tag (or label) identifier at the particular type of a product, e.g. the article number (like the EAN). It is the identifier at the specific level.X
ReferencedByIfcRelAssignsToProduct
@RelatingProduct
S[0:?]Reference to the IfcRelAssignsToProduct relationship, by which other products, processes, controls, resources or actors (as subtypes of IfcObjectDefinition) can be related to this product type.
IFC4 CHANGE  New inverse relationship.
X
IfcElementType
9ElementTypeIfcLabel? The type denotes a particular type that indicates the object further. The use has to be established at the level of instantiable subtypes. In particular it holds the user defined type, if the enumeration of the attribute 'PredefinedType' is set to USERDEFINED. X
IfcBuildingElementType
IfcBuildingElementProxyType
10PredefinedTypeIfcBuildingElementProxyTypeEnum Predefined types to define the particular type of an building element proxy. There may be property set definitions available for each predefined or user defined type.X
