Here are 3 simple steps to convert your IFC file using our fast and free IFC file converter tool.
|Industry Foundation Classes
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.
IFC Converter Capabilities
Currently our IFC converter can only convert from IFC files, our developers are working to allow converting to IFC files in future versions of our tools. When converting 3D Model/Mesh files using our IFC converter we will attempt to convert color materials into a suitable format for use in the converted file.
Our IFC conversion tool can convert most 3D geometry including mesh vertices and faces with no loss of detail. Any color materials contained within the 3D model file will be converted where possible.
No, due to the different methods of assigning textures to a 3D model textures are not currently supported. If your IFC model contains textures or references to external texture files, these will be ignored.
Yes! Our IFC conversion tools are 100% free to use.
No, you can convert as many files as you wish. We do not impose any conversion limits on our IFC conversion tools.
We aim to process all IFC conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files and significantly longer for some larger file formats, so please be patient.
Once your IFC file has been uploaded and we know the file format you wish to convert it to our bespoke conversion software will convert your IFC and make it available for you to download with a unique download Url.
Yes, of course it is! Your IFC, once converted is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.
Yes! Our IFC conversion tools will run on any system with a modern web browser.
If you are having difficulty converting your IFC you can contact us and we will try to help where possible.
