Summary0001795: adapt IFC exporters to accept unicode filenames
Descriptionifcopenshell does not use the python open function. instead it processes the file name argument in C code.
Either ifcopenshell needs to be changed to accept unicode filenames or the Arch module needs to do the conversion.
The solution should work with both versions of IFC exporters and with python 2 and 3.
Steps To Reproduce
Additional Informationto get the old behavior the filename could be converted to utf using
>>> if isinstance(filename,unicode): filename=filename.encode('utf8')
for filesystems that don't use utf8 the following workaround should provide better results
>>> if isinstance(filename,unicode):
... import sys #workaround since ifcopenshell currently can't handle unicode filenames
... filename=filename.encode(sys.getfilesystemencoding())
TagsNo tags attached.

I'll have a look with the ifcopenshell developer if he can do something about it, otherwise we can adopt this solution...

Unicode support is part of a biggest issue in IfcOpenShell and probably won't be worked out anytime soon, so, since this is working now, I think we can close this report... Reopen if needed!
