Software Implementations

buildingSMART International standards are of no use to anyone unless there are software implementations in tools for the industry to use. For the most optimal openBIM workflows in a single project, the variety of tools used by the different stakeholders should have the capability to support IFC and BCF technologies, exchanging needed information between each other. This ranges from model authoring and design analysis, to construction management and operations. Software support for buildingSMART standards encompasses the entire globe, with international and local market developers providing solutions to architects, engineers, contractors, owners, and more. Some of the vendors/developers on the list are members of buildingSMART International or one of its chapters and some of them have made the effort to have their applications certified by buildingSMART to support IFC. But all the list entries are leveraging the open, international specifications to supply the global marketplace in one way or another.

For more information about software that buildingSMART International has certified to support IFC import and export, please visit Community > Software Certification > Certification Participants

buildingSMART International Standards Implementation Database

This is a listing of all software products which claim to support buildingSMART International standards, including IFC and BCF. For a list of CERTIFIED applications, please refer to https://technical.buildingsmart.org/certification/certification-participants/.

While the best efforts are put into keeping this list up to date, please feel free to contact us at technical@buildingsmart.org if you see a product missing from this list or the information provided is invalid.
