ARCHICAD to IFC Export Tests
Some of the most common advantages that we talk about when we refer to BIM usually are Collaboration and Coordination. The IFC format is the basic common language for collaboration in BIM based projects. It is the neutral data format for open BIM.
Understanding this language is the way to ensure communication in between BIM platforms and Teams.
The main scope of using a common language in a BIM environment is to make as easy as possible and optimize the integration of every discipline of the Architectural project.
