The IFC format (for Industry Foundation Classes) is an open interoperability format for exchanging and sharing information between software in the architecture, building and construction industry, BIM (Building Information Modeling). This standard (ISO 16739) was born from the initiative of the IAI (International Alliance for Interoperability), since renamed buildingSMART, associating companies in the construction sector and software publishers
