For the implementation of IfcStandardWall with an associated IfcWallType within the IFC2x3 extended coordination view the following agreements are made:

    * the IfcWallType is supported, but is not mandatory for export

if an IfcWallType is exported for a standard wall, then the following specification on assigning material information to both, the IfcWallStandardCase and the IfcWallType needs to be met.

    * for each IfcWallStandardCase, an IfcMaterialLayerSetUsage is assigned (general rule according to the IFC specification);

    * all wall occurrences being of type IfcWallStandardCase and belonging to one wall type are assigned to one instance of IfcWallType;

    * the IfcMaterialLayerSetUsage's attached to all instances of IfcWallStandardCase belonging to the same IfcWallType shall reference the same instance of IfcMaterialLayerSet;

    * this instance of IfcMaterialLayerSet is assigned to the IfcWallType.
