This reference guide provides an insight into the IFC standard and how it works in Archicad 25.


IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) is an open, neutral data exchange format. It is optimized for OPEN BIM- and model-based interoperability among disciplines, primarily in the AEC industry.

The IFC format is used for the efficient import and export of 3D elements and related non-geometric data, regardless of the application used to create the model. The IFC format is ISO-certified and can be integrated into any existing quality assurance polices your office may have. IFC is developed in part by buildingSMART (formerly the IAI - the International Alliance for Interoperability).

Graphisoft has played an active role within the buildingSMART organization since 1996 and supports the IFC standard. Through IFC, Archicad can communicate with other disciplines within the context of the building model. The building model can be exported back to literally hundreds of other systems that support IFC.

This reference guide provides an insight into the IFC standard and how it works in Archicad 25.
