For the record, I have written a summary of all of the methods I know about to view IFC files that are open source and cross platform:

https://thinkmoult.com/how-to-view-bim- ... linux.html

I have tried each one of them in turn to make sure that they work as expected. As I learn more about FreeCAD and IFC I will be able to give a more critical judgement :) But for now there it is.
I also blog about 3D rendering, architecture, software and other on thinkMoult.com. RSS / Atom feed available for your convenience.

Amazing! Excellent summary and test report of possible workflow. Impressed by the OpenFoam study image.

Possible to become part of FC Arch / BIM wiki? Or maybe, i am not sure in Arch Development or User Help forum, to have a series of Workflows discussions if anybody already develop / developing?

- Arch / BIM - OpenFoam - Wind Study Workflow
- Arch / BIM - Fire Engineering / Simulation
- Arch / BIM - Site Topography Importing
- Arch / BIM - Quantity taking
- Arch / BIM - Blender etc. - Rendering Workflow

As I understand it, it seems like they want to stick with OCE, too, so I wouldn't hold your breath on this one.
Like my FreeCAD work? I'd appreciate any level of support via Patreon, Liberapay, or PayPal! Read more about what I do at my blog.

[*] You will notice that some icons are not visible on the left toolbar. I noticed when I ran the program it says

Code: Select all

QIODevice::read (QFile, ":styles.css"): device not open
. I have tried playing the styles.css file in the same dir as the executable, but that didn't help. Any ideas how to resolve this? The buttons function perfectly, just are missing icons.
I solved it this way ... https://github.com/berndhahnebach/ifcpl ... a13242d678

There is a C# project which may run with mono, but I never used mono. http://docs.xbim.net/
XBIM Xplorer is very useful. I use it for teach IFC basics (until I find a cross-platform equivalent). Being able to click on entity id as a link is just great to see relation between entities and quickly find which entity host project origin and georeferencing coordinates.
Unfortunately this project use WPF which is not implemented in Mono : https://www.mono-project.com/docs/gui/wpf/.
I blog about HVAC / BIM / Energy : pythoncvc.net. If you like you can follow the RSS feed.

I always have this idea to foment extending IFC++... Some time ago, there was that app called ifcQuery, made by the same guy of Ifc++, (it doesn't seem available anymore, if you go to the ifcquery website and download, what you get is the exact same app as "our" ifc++). That app was very similar to ifc++ but had a couple of very useful extra panels, specially a properties panel.

Probably it woudn't be THAT much work to implement that panel in ifc++... And have clickable links too. Just needs someone motivated in coding it probably :)
