The fastest and the most flexible solution to support IFC
The IFC Engine is a STEP Toolbox with ability to generate 3D geometry for all popular versions of the IFC schema. The component is able to load, edit and create Step Physical Files (as well as the XML notation) and their schema’s via its own object database. This includes all currently available IFC versions. For IFC 2×3 TC1 files (earlier versions like IFC 20LF and IFC 2×2) and also for IFC 4 ADD2 TC1, IFC4.1 IFC4.2 and IFC4.3 TC1 / IFC4.3 ADD1 the geometry is generated. Most elements of the coming IFC4.4 are embedded already (IFC5 ideas and developments are closely followed and will be supported as soon as these will be more clear).
The development started in 2001 and was commercialized in 2006. With over 100 software companies using it today in more than 140 different software solutions and 250 updates per year over the last 6 years it is a reliable and widely used product.
The same license allows use of the embedded Geometry Kernel, the STEP Engine and the CIS/2 Engine.
IFC Engine is well documented. The documentation is available also offline in the example package.
