Currently there is no way to perform this operation. A Pathfinder model on it's own only provides the means to define 2d walkable planes, and lacks the underlying descriptions of 3d geometry. Additionally, we have assumed that if someone imported a building model into Pathfinder, they likely would have the same building model to import into PyroSim. Clearly our assumption didn't hold true for you.

We are always trying to better understand the workflows of our users, and I really appreciate this feedback. If you have the time, please consider emailing support@thunderheadeng.com. We'd enjoy having an open dialog about your workflow to better understand how this situation arises.
