BIM Import 


The BIM Import extension allows you to import 3D CAD buildings directly into IDA ICE, using the open and neutral IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) format.




The IFC format, which is commonly used for BIM (Building Information Modeling) models, includes geometry (walls, roofs, walls, windows and doors), spaces (in order to create zones), and sets of properties (for walls, windows and materials). All leading architectural tools can export to the IFC format, such as ArchiCAD, Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD Architecture, MagiCAD, Bentley Architecture, and many more.
