.ifc File Extension

Developer: BuildingSMART
File type: Industry Foundation Classes File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .ifc. Files with the file extension .ifc can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .ifc files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .ifc file?

A BIM program is classified as Building Information Management software, and some of these applications can be used to create an industry foundation classes file. These industry foundation classes files are stored with open source encoding specifications used for the IFC format and are saved as IFC files with the .ifc extension. These IFC files are categorized as 3D image files, and the content of an ICF file may include digital building and facility design objects among other visual elements entered into the IFC file by the author of the image. These building and facility designs may include digital images of materials used for constructing the building or facility, its shape and spatial elements like the dimensions of the building's different sections. Promoting interoperability is the main objective for the development of the IFC file format, which means these IFC files and the encoding and compression specifications integrated into these IFC files can be used across different DIM programs.

how to open a .ifc file?

Launch a .ifc file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .ifc file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .ifc files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .ifc file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .ifc file will open the correct application.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ifc files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ifc. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
