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.


PLY PLY File

PLY (Polygon File Format or Stanford Triangle Format) is a file format developed to store three dimensional triangles with additional properties e.g. color, normals, transparency or texture coordinates. However, Autoconverter our PLY file converter can only read and write mesh geometry without the material properties, as in the PLY file they can vary between triangle vertices. You can save PLY files in a binary or ASCII text file format, with the preference for the binary version due to a significant PLY file size saving.
