Definition from buildingSMART: An IfcRelConnectsPorts defines the
relationship that is made between two ports at their point of connection. It
may include the connection geometry between two ports.
IfcRelConnectsPorts is required as the means to define how
instances of IfcPort connect together. Each of the port is being
attached to the IfcElement by using the
IfcRelConnectsPortToElement relationship. Since each element is now
considered to have ports for the purpose of connection, it is necessary to
achieve the actual connection by the defined approach.
HISTORY: New entity in IFC 2.0,
