How to Export Inventor models to IFC BIM files?  ​ ​

The Multi-CAD collaboration is facing multiple challenges. The BIMDeX Data Exchange Ecosystem through its proprietary BXF file format offers a simple yet intuitive solution for the Interoperability challenges.

  • Inventor to IFC data Exporter/Converter is a simple way of data exchange through plug-in/add-on tool which creates IFC BIM files from Inventor parts (.ipt) and assemblies (.iam)
  • Exports your Inventor model into a non – Parametric IFC file using IFC Exporter Plug-in which can be imported in any IFC Viewer or 3D CAD applications that support the import of IFC files. 
  • There will be no loss in geometry or any other meta data, all the associated properties would be brought in and the RGB colors as well.
  • The tool supports various industry specific requirements like geometric simplification, parameter data exchange.
  • It comes with multilingual support (English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, etc.)

  • Supported Version:

    Inventor: 2015 – 2022
