GeometryGym moving forward with Rhino-IFC-Revit integration

GeometryGym has published the latest Rhino-IFC-Revit plugin. Be sure to check out it's blog post. It looks very promising and a very useful workflow between Rhino/Grasshopper and Revit via IFC!!

Not that long ago IFC was seen as an achievable file format with limited support by mainstream BIM tools. But now with tools such as this and mainstream BIM tools such as Revit, ArchiCAD, Bentley Architecture, Digital Project etc having improved interoperability via IFC, IFC is clearly becoming an industry standard data exchange/achievable file format. IFC is not complex at all!

For instance, following are two screen captures from Revit 2012 and Revit 2013 to see the difference between IFC interoperability improvements in Revit 2013 products. This was an IFC file generated from Rhino using GeometryGym plugin. In Revit 2012, IFC import missed a few panels randomly whereas in Revit 2013 all panels come fine as native Revit objects, fully editable. Kudos to Autodesk for their continued commitment to improve interoperability.
