Copy properties between entities with BIM data
Whether the Matchprop command copies BIM data depends on the value of the BimMatchProp user preference.
BimMatchProp = 0: Match standard properties
Only standard properties will be copied, according to the currently selected options (see above).
BimMatchProp = 1: Match standard and BIM properties
BIM data, including IFC properties and user defined properties are copied, except:
- BIM Type*
Note: When using MatchProp between a BIM classified entity and an entity without any BIM data, the unclassified entity will be assigned the same BIM type and the corresponding BIM properties will be copied along, except Composition/Profile, GUID and Quantities.
