How do I use an IFC component when I've imported it?

ifc
import

#1

I imported an IFC component from the National BIM Library. To be specific, this one: https://www.nationalbimlibrary.com/internorm-windows-uk-ltd/hf-210-timber-and-aluminium-window-home-pure

It seemed to import ok.

But where is it? I thought it would be under model components, but it isn’t there. I guess I’m looking in the wrong place?

it imports into the model, but had many wrappings under skppxkc3m in ‘Outliner’ for my import…

it’s always best to import into an empty model to evaluate and strip unneeded levels, then save that as a component to import into your drawing…

Thanks for the tip, I’ll try that tonight…

Yep, that works and I can work with the component, thanks.
