Intro tutorial for parsing IFC files with IfcOpenShell and Python

Postby Moult » Sat Feb 16, 2019 11:28 am

I recently wrote a short introductory tutorial for parsing IFC files with IfcOpenShell and Python on my blog here:

https://thinkmoult.com/using-ifcopenshe ... ython.html

I thought users on this forum might find it useful as an introduction. It's a really simply library and great for querying IFC files to check if their contents are correct.

Enjoy! :)

I suspect that they did, as I crossposted this on the building smart forums, and @aothms (ifcopenshell main dev) liked the post :)
