Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the IFC format, part of Migrating from AutoCAD to Revit.
In many situations, the most practical approach is to decide early on if a particular project…will be authored in standard AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, or Revit.…Translation of any kind always introduces a layer of complexity and the possibility…that data will be lost in translation.…Making this decision early eliminates any such issues with translation.…However, it's not always possible to perform all project work in a single platform.…In the previous movie we discussed using export to AutoCAD as an option to take AutoCAD architecture…files and bring them over to Revit. Another alternative is to use the IFC format.…
Now IFC stands for Industry Foundation Classes, and it's an independent open file format designed…to translate building components across various products from different vendors.…It's sort of positioning itself to be an open bin standard.…Now IFC is really the only format out there that's attempting to universally say that…this is a wall and this is a door and this is a window, but it's far from being complete or ideal.…
