Convert 3MF to IFC File

3MF to IFC ......

Enclosed is a comprehensive list of resources related to the interoperability and exchange between 3MF and IFC files. These resources will prove invaluable in facilitating the conversion from 3MF to IFC file.

3MF File 3MF

The 3MF (3D Manufacturing Format) is an open-source XML file format developed by the 3MF Consortium. It’s specifically designed to store three-dimensional triangles, along with additional properties such as color, transparency, or texture coordinates, catering to the needs of the 3D printing industry. The 3MF file format is considered a modern alternative to the legacy STL format for 3D printing. Our Autoconverter software and Automesher Application are capable of reading from and writing to the 3MF files, leveraging the open-source lib3mf library provided by the 3MF Consortium. However, please be aware that group hierarchies are not supported for 3MF files.


The IFC (Industrial Foundation Classes) file extension is commonly used in AEC (Architecture Engineering Construction) software, including applications like Revit from Autodesk or SmartPlant 3D by Intergraph. The IFC file format can store a wide range of information, including model geometry, measurement units, reusable geometry component instances, material colors with alpha values, assembly structure with component names, and generic BIM (Building Information Modeling) data. With our software, Autoconverter and Automesher Application, you can open and save IFC geometries with custom properties and convert them to various other 3D file formats.
