The IfcRelProjectsElement is an objectified relationship between an element and one projection element that creates a modifier to the shape of the element. The relationship is defined to be a 1:1 relationship, if an element has more than one projection, several relationship objects have to be used, each pointing to a different projection element. The IfcRelProjectsElement establishes an aggregation relationship between the main element and a sub ordinary addition feature.
The IfcRelProjectsElement implies a Boolean operation of addition for the geometric bodies of the element and the feature element. As with all decomposition relationships it determines:
- existence dependency - the RelatedFeatureElement cannot exist without the RelatingElement
- hierarchical and non-cyclical relationship - the IfcRelProjectsElement can only alter a single IfcElement
- no spatial containment - the IfcFeatureElementAddition as related element never participates in the hiearchical spatial containment relationship IfcRelContainedInSpatialStructure
Assignment of a globally unique identifier within the entire software world.
Assignment of the information about the current ownership of that object, including owning actor, application, local identification and information captured about the recent changes of the object,
Optional name for use by the participating software systems or users. For some subtypes of IfcRoot the insertion of the Name attribute may be required. This would be enforced by a where rule.
Optional description, provided for exchanging informative comments.

Element at which a projection is created by the associated IfcProjectionElement.
Reference to the IfcFeatureElementAddition that defines an addition to the volume of the element, by using a Boolean addition operation. An example is a projection at the associated element.
Ownership, history, and merge state is captured using IfcOwnerHistory.
IfcRoot assigns the globally unique ID. In addition it may provide for a name and a description about the concept.
