How to export to .IFC and retain colors

Hi there,

I am trying to export my Sketchup models to .IFC and have successfully done so and maintained the Site and Building Structure format.

However when the models are uploaded or viewed on other software such as CATIA or Solibri the models retain no graphical properties (line edge, color, and transparencies)

Can anyone offer insight into how we can get the properties to retain on .IFC?

I don’t know about Catia, but Solibri and BIMSight display the IFC model using a colour scheme of their own based on the classification of the parts. Material information or textures aren’t included into the IFC.
