Hello,You mentioned ArchiCAD in your image above.I wish to add that much was changed since last year. In this year's COBie Challenge ArchiCAD performed 100% with zero errors (you can see the result in the table towards the end of the following web page):http://www.nibs.org/?page=bsa_chall14_gsBy the way, Revit also performed 100% with zero errors.I wish to also note that at the moment ArchiCAD is certified for both IFC Import and Export, while Revit is certified for IFC Export, but not for IFC Import:http://www.buildingsmart.org/certification/currently-certified-software-productsFor anyone who wonders about last year's results, the following Revit page gave and explanation:http://revitall.wordpress.com/2013/04/09/autodesk-wins-buildingsmart-cobie-challenge/"Well, although the official press-releases don’t mention it, the initial pilot project that the vendors were require to model was particularly difficult. Apparently, given this was a mock project, many of the parameters were left blank by some participants, and actually marked for completion by the “end-user” as would be the case in a real-world scenario.These were then interpreted by the buildingSMART judges as errors, and penalties applied. According to a source, all submissions made this type of error, however in the case of the Graphisoft submission, this error was replicated many times throughout the project file – thus accounting for the large penalty difference."Laszlo NagyArchiCAD-Talk Moderator, Site Admin
