IfcRelVoidsElement is an objectified relationship between a building element and one opening element that creates a void in the element. It is a one-to-one relationship. This relationship implies a boolean operation of subtraction between the geometric bodies of the element and the opening.
As shown in Figure 220.127.116.11.A, the insertion of a void into a wall is represented by the relationship IfcRelVoidsElement. The opening within the wall is defined by the pattern IfcWall - IfcRelVoidsElement - IfcOpeningElement.
