Convert IFC file

IFC IFC File

IFC (Industrial Foundation Classes) file extension is common for AEC (Architecture Engineering Construction) software e.g. Revit from Autodesk or SmartPlant 3D by Intergraph. The IFC file format can store model geometry, measurement units, material colors with the alpha value, assembly structure with component names and generic BIM (Building Information Modeling) data. However Autoconverter, our IFC file converter, currently allows only to open and read 3D geometries from IFC files.


OBJ OBJ File

OBJ (Alias Wavefront Object) is a text based file format for 3D geometry objects which is very popular and widely supported by many 3D software programs. OBJ file format is capable of storing named group objects, surface materials with transparent colors or texture images, and quads or triangles as geometry primitives. However our Autoconverter software will simplify every OBJ quad primitive with two triangles as only triangular facets are supported during the file conversion. It's important to mention that due to a textual format OBJ files will always be significantly bigger than the binary files e.g. 3DS (3D Studio) or SKP (SketchUp).
