Joint Event: IFC - What is it and why should we care?

Speaker: Christopher Zoog, AIA
Associate | buildingSMART Specialist
HOK

Topic: IFC, What It Is, and Why You Should Care:
IFC is often talked about being simply the “DXF format” of BIM, and while it’s true that is an exchange format for design authoring, IFC’s further usefulness is generally not well understood in the AEC industry (at least not in the US). IFC is arguably the best way to leverage data that is typically trapped inside your building information model, often by the very tool used to create it (in this case, Revit).

This lecture will explore IFC’s origin, its current status, as well as how it can unlock that trapped data! Using IFC with Autodesk Revit as the core modeling tool, several BIM use workflows will be demonstrated including:

  • Design Authoring / Computational Design (Grasshopper to Revit, Tekla)
  • Program Validation / FM handover (dRofus, TIDA, Revit)
  • Performance based design / Simulation (MassMotion, Simergy, Revit)
  • Model based coordination / Automated Code Compliance (Solibri, Revit, BIM Collaboration Format)
  • Design Collaboration (dRofus, Revit, Model Server, BCF)

Various IFC exporting tools, as well as IFC specific editing tools will also be discussed and demonstrated.

    Great presentation by our newly minted ARCHITECT, Chris Zoog! This is an important topic related to the advancement of our industry. I encourage our group members to stay involved in the development of open BIM standards via the buildingSMART alliance.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
