Export from Cadwork

In this tutorial, you will learn best practices to export a 3D model from Cadwork for use in cmBuilder.



  1. Show only the elements to be exported. Focus on the main structural elements and, if possible, hide the connections, fasteners and small parts.
  2. Check the boxes of the IFC types so the elements will be classified in cmBuilder.
    • Click on Activate Attribute > Elements by Attribute > BIM > IFC Type
  3. Optional: Assign IFC types to the elements without this attribute. 
    • Select elements and click on Modify > BIM > IFC Typ
  4. Export the file using IFC 2x3 Schema
    • Click on Export > Files > IFC and choose IFC 2x3 from the drop down menu
