Hi, This problem is related to the IFC export of Tekla Structures. Please see this forum discussion about the issue http://www.teklabimsight.com/helpcenter/topic.jsp?id=5fac2531-5d6e-4f5a-9ad1-7bef979324e6 Hope with the instructions found on that forum thread you'll be able to view the properties correctly in Tekla BIMsight. Thanks, Heikki
