Prior to starting the Database Interference Detection Service, you must configure its properties. For more information, see Configure Interference Service Properties.

  1. Log on with Administrative privileges to the computer on which the Project Management and Database Interference Detection Service options are installed.

  2. Open the Control Panel, and then double-click Administrative Tools.

  3. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click Services.

  4. Right-click either the Smart 3D Interference Detection Service or the Smart 3D Interference Detection Service 64-bit, and then select Properties from the shortcut menu.

    The 64-bit Smart 3D Interference Detection Service does not process PDS attachments or Point Clouds. Use Reference 3D for PDS Projects if you are running 64-bit IFC, or you can switch to a 32-bit IFC server to process PDS attachments and supported Point Clouds.

  5. On the Log On tab, select the This account option, and then type the user name that has Administrative privileges.

    This version of the software does not support the Local System account option.

  6. In the Password and Confirm password boxes, type the password for the user account.

  7. On the Recovery tab, set the options as required.

  8. On the General tab, verify that the Startup type is set to Automatic.

  9. In the Service status section, click Start.

  10. Click OK.

  • The interference checking service does not consume a license when it starts. It consumes a license only while processing the model. For more information, see Checking Interferences.

  • If clashes between the point cloud and the Smart 3D objects are selected to check for interferences, then Smart 3D Interference Detection Service or Smart 3D Interference Detection Service 64-bit should be started from the command prompt. From the command prompt, navigate to install\Foul Check\Middle\bin, and then type IFCNtSvc.exe /Auto/0, and press ENTER.

  • Errors that are encountered during startup of the Database Interference Detection service are logged to the Event Viewer Application Log with the source name IfcNtSvc.

  • Do not run the 32-bit and 64-bit interference detection services simultaneously on a computer. IFC must only run as a single instance for the entire model.
