BIM BEAVER read IFC files, and display it as a 3D model, and inspect properties. And create or modify instances and create things for architecture. BIM BEAVER read IFC files written by other BIM software like Revit, Archicad and so forth. BIM BEAVER support IFC format 2×3, and 4BIM BEAVER is a freeware.

About IFC file

The Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) data model is intended to describe building and construction industry data.

It is a platform neutral, open file format specification that is not controlled by a single vendor or group of vendors. It is an object-based file format with a data model developed by buildingSMART (formerly the International Alliance for Interoperability, IAI) to facilitate interoperability in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, and is a commonly used collaboration format in Building information modeling (BIM) based projects. The IFC model specification is open and available.[1] It is registered by ISO and is an official International Standard ISO 16739-1:2018.
