Structural analysis conversion tools

Convert From IFC


Convert from IFC allows an IFC model to be converted into a structural analysis model (of the chosen format) within the Rhino work space. This model can be saved as a separate file in the structural analysis programs file format ready for import into that particular program.

The output quality of the structural analysis model created can sometime be dependent on the quality and data associated with the particular IFC file being imported. When exporting IFC from an external software application, you may need to tweak export settings to get the best results from conversion.
