The example demonstrates the use of various way to use mapped items to represent a simple geometric form of a building element proxy. All example files use the same representation map being a swept solid defining the shape (a block of 1m x 1m x 2m).

NOTE  See the example of "Basic geometric shape" for the definition of the swept solid. Any other shape representation, e.g. 'Brep', 'CSG', or 'SurfaceModel' could have been used to represent the representation map.

The basic structure provided with the sample IFC files include:

Depending on the model view definition some representation types may not be allowed in actual exchange scenarios.
