Edits the attributes of an IfcRelSequence

For more information about the attributes and data types of an IfcRelSequence, consult the IFC documentation.

  • rel_sequence (ifcopenshell.entity_instance) – The IfcRelSequence entity you want to edit

  • attributes (dict, optional) – a dictionary of attribute names and values.



Return type:

# need to be part of a work schedule.
