The philosophy behind CAD programs with BIM (Building Information Modelling) technology is to integrate all the information required to carry out a construction project in its initial phases, in such a way that this information is then available to other applications to resolve the other phases of the construction project. The flow of information from the CAD/BIM programs to other applications is done via IFC format interchange files.
IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) format files are open standard files and are not controlled by any software manufacturer. They were developed by the IAI (International Alliance for Interoperability) with the aim to become a standard with which building information models could be shared easily in the construction sector.
This module allows for IFC format files to be imported (IFC2x3 standard) to CYPECAD MEP.
