Public Types

enum Value

This enumeration defines the basic configuration of the roof in terms of the different roof shapes, as illustrated in Figure 68.

Roofs which are subdivided into more than these basic shapes have to be defined by the geometry only. Also roofs with non-regular shapes (free form roof) have to be defined by the geometry only. The type of such roofs is FREEFORM.

HISTORY New Enumeration in IFC Release 2x.
