As a founding member and for 20 years now, Autodesk supports buildingSMART International, the organisation that develops and maintains the IFC standard, the leading interoperability standard, for sharing and exchanging BIM data across different software.
Reliable data exchange is critical to project collaboration. Autodesk has been a leader in supporting the .ifc open file format and other openBIM data formats, including Construction Operations Building Information Exchange (COBie) for BIM data, gbXML, LandXML and more.
The .ifc data model contains both geometry and properties of ‘intelligent' building elements and their relationships within a building model, to support multi-disciplinary, integrated, open BIM workflows, both desktop and cloud-based, throughout the entire project lifecycle.
