You can now convert to and from any IFC file to OBJ, FBX, STL, GLB, GLTF, DAE, 3DS, PLY and more coming.

At Convert3D, we're constantly pushing our platform to offer support for more 3D file formats. Today, we're happy to introduce an enhancement to our site – support for Industry Foundation Classes (IFC). This addition is made for users in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry.

In the world of AEC, diverse file formats are the norm, and therefore the need to convert to other 3D file formats is also a need. With the addition of IFC support, Convert3D aims to help AEC users to effortlessly convert IFC files into formats that fits their specific needs, whether it's for interactive applications or renders.

Deciphering IFC

Industry Foundation Classes, or IFC, is a versatile file format that plays a large role in the realm of Building Information Modeling (BIM) within the AEC sector. It serves as a standard for representing and exchanging information pertaining to construction and building projects. IFC files encapsulate data related to building components, materials, spatial relationships, and more.
