I have an intern in my office using Revit, and we use Archicad. We are trying to open her IFCs in Archicad, but all I"m getting is the project origin.

I'm changing the translator to Revit.

Any help on how to get it open?

Have you tried opening the IFC in some free IFC viewer software? Just to check if the problem is in the Revit export.

Also check the active Renovation Filter in Archicad.
Maybe you are using one that is 'hiding' elements?
Make sure you have one set that is 'showing' everything.

Thank you both!
We discovered that she was drafting 2D line work, and the setting to export 2D was buried deep within the Revit settings. All fixed up!
