An IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) file is a standardized digital format used in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry for exchanging and sharing information among various software applications. Developed by the International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI), now known as buildingSMART International, IFC is an open and neutral data format that facilitates the interoperability of different Building Information Modeling (BIM) software tools.

IFC files contain detailed information about building elements, spatial relationships, and other relevant data, allowing professionals across the AEC spectrum to collaborate seamlessly. These files serve as a common language for BIM applications, ensuring that data can be accurately and efficiently exchanged between different platforms. The use of IFC promotes collaboration, reduces errors, and enhances communication throughout the entire life cycle of a construction project, from design and planning to construction and maintenance.

One key feature of IFC is its ability to represent both geometric and non-geometric data, providing a comprehensive and standardized way to describe the physical and functional characteristics of a building or infrastructure project. This versatility makes IFC a vital component in the move towards more integrated and collaborative workflows within the AEC industry, fostering efficiency, accuracy, and improved decision-making processes.
