class Ifc4x2::IfcElementType : public Ifc4x2::IfcTypeProduct

Definition from IAI: The IfcElementType defines a list of commonly shared property set definitions of an element and an optional set of product representations. It is used to define an element specification (i.e. the specific product information, that is common to all occurrences of that product type).

NOTE The product representations are defined as representation maps (at the level of the supertype IfcTypeProduct, which gets assigned by an element instance through the IfcShapeRepresentation.Item[1] being an IfcMappedItem.

An element type is used to define the common properties of a certain type or style of an element that may be applied to instances of that element type to assign a specific style. Element types (the instantiable subtypes) may be exchanged without being already assigned to occurrences.

Public Functions

bool hasElementType() const

Whether the optional attribute ElementType is defined for this IfcElementType.

std::string ElementType() const

The type denotes a particular type that indicates the object further. The use has to be established at the level of instantiable subtypes. In particular it holds the user defined type, if the enumeration of the attribute ‘PredefinedType’ is set to USERDEFINED.
