Question:
When I export my model to IFC format or with the Publish to Tekla BIMsight command, a part of the model is not exported.
What is the reason for this?

Answer:
Check the following after making an IFC export:
1. The following message in the out.ifc.log file:
PartId [the part ID], Info: User rejected
means that the non-exported parts have the following setting in their part User-defined attributes dialog, IFC export tab: the IFC entry is set to None. Change this to Auto, for example.
2. Check that the parts have known profiles.
3. To export the bolts as well, select the Select objects in components selection switch before selecting the parts for export.
