IFC-Interface for ZEICON


The IFC interface supports data transfer from digital building information modeling (BIM) in the construction industry via IFC files (*.ifc, Industry Foundation Classes), which store component information in an open standard.

By importing the IFC data, a direct assignment is made from the geometry description to the components available in ZEICON with its respective parameter settings. The import of IFC data includes the following functions:

  • Supported structural members: Walls (optionally with openings), slabs (optionally with openings), beams as well as rectangular and circular supports
  • Import of the geometry by extrusion method (rotation, extrusion and sweep solids)
  • Import Filter for material selection/assignment
  • Layer assignment according to the height and type of the structural members
  • Protocol to check the import quality

Benefits of ZEICON-IFC

    ZEICON-IFC is a powerful function extension and has the following special features:

    • Direct data import from other IFC-based CAD systems
    • Transfer of the spatial geometry and arrangement of the structural elements
    • secure data exchange through a standardized format
    • Reediting of construction element information for structural models e.g. for wall connections and grids
