IfcOpenShell is an open source (LGPL 3) software library that helps developers work with the industry foundation classes (IFC) file format. The IFC file format can be used to describe building and construction data. The format is commonly used for building information modelling (BIM), for example, mechanical loading analysis, and thermal and energy efficiency studies. IfcOpenShell is primarily a collection of C++ libraries, however, as it has Python bindings, it can be integrated with programs like FreeCAD and Blender.

Installation[edit]

IfcOpenShell may be packaged in different Linux repositories, ready to install and use; or it can be packaged together with some programs that use it, for example, FreeCAD.

In other cases you may get one of the stand-alone, pre-compiled distributions, or you may download and compile the source code yourself.

To learn more about installing IfcOpenShell, visit the page in the FreeCAD wiki: IfcOpenShell.
