Hotfix & IFC certification

Date: Tuesday, October 1, 2013

1. Screen Shot 2013-10-01 at 8.12.20 AMArchiCAD received IFC Coordination View 2.0 Import Certification: GRAPHISOFT announced today another important milestone in its support for Open BIM with ArchiCAD having successfully passed IFC Coordination View 2.0 Import certification. This most recent announcement makes ArchiCAD the only architectural software developer to earn both IFC Coordination View 2.0 Import and Export certification.  The Coordination View was the first Model View Definition developed bybuildingSMART International and is currently the most widely implemented view of the IFC scheme. The main purpose of the Coordination View is to allow sharing of building information models among the disciplines of architecture, structural engineering, and building services (mechanical). It contains definitions of spatial structure, building, and building service elements that are needed for coordinating design information among these disciplines. The IFC2x3 Coordination View is the built-in and default standard supported by ArchiCAD.
