BIM IFC – Industry Foundation Classes

What are IFC?

Industry Foundation Classes remove ambiguities in the process and include the standards for working with BIM. The IFC system is a neutral and open file format for exchanging data and information. Using the IFC model makes it possible to exchange information about all aspects of the process. In addition, IFC generalise data to generate unambiguous standards. The IFC system is also known as open BIM, because it can be used by everyone in the construction process.
