Description

Description

This class will start with a technical overview of Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) itself, with an emphasis on the new IFC 4 schema, and the new Model View Definitions (MVDs) associated with it. We will then take a high-level look at how IFC is supported across the 2016 Autodesk, Inc., product line, including several products that have just added IFC capability. Next we will take a closer look at Revit software's use of IFC, and attempt to understand the options available when using IFC in Revit software, what they mean, and when you might use them. Finally, the class will look at, but not emphasize, Revit 2016 software IFC open-source .NET code and the associated Revit software API.
