Last updated: June 20, 2024

What information is shown here?

The list of defined upload presets for IFC files available at this level (account/folder/building) is displayed here. Also it is possible to add/edit/delete these presets.

At folder or building level, all presets inherit by default the presets defined at a higher level.

It is possible to break this inheritance by clicking ‘break inheritance’ in the toolbar. Once the inheritance is broken it is possible to create new presets for this lower and all lower levels. When inheritance has been broken, there is a possibility to restore the inheritance which will delete all presets defined at this level.
