We have a project with 5 floors and we received an ifc from the structural engineers with 25 floors, because they work in a weird way.

I looked for this but couldn't find an answer. Is there any way to import/merge the ifc into our archicad file making everything thing into 1 floor while keeping the original heights of each element?

Hello Luiscardoso,

An IFC file is a quite a hardly editable file. Is it a IFC4 or IFC2x3 ? Is it a coordination view or a design view ?
The question seems to be more what about your file instead of how are you able to modify it ?

If it's a IFC4 by design transfer view I think it might be easier to do what you want with it.
