BIM Integration

The IFC Export Module

BIM processes facilitate the interoperability of software used throughout a project's workflow and resolving design conflicts via the use of intelligent 3D models before construction saves time and money.

CIVIL DESIGNER's Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) file export functionality allows you to export all the geometric data in a project as one or more IFC files to be used as part of any BIM workflow process. Our IFC files contain 3D watertight 'solid' model geometry representations of the project's objects with various IFC properties and quantities attached to the 3D objects.

BIM Viewer The IFC export files can be written from any or all of CIVIL DESIGNER's design and analysis modules, as one or as separate files. The functionality has been developed in collaboration with one of the foremost BIM proponents in Europe, Kier Construction (Infrastructure), UK.

If you would like to add the IFC export functionality to your CIVIL DESIGNER software for the purpose of exchanging Building Information Models (BIM) throughout your project's workflow, and you have at least 1 up to date Design Centre license, please contact us.
