A number of commercial software packages support IFC. Most of the systems provide IFC import and/or export as part of their standard package. Some companies offer an online update of the IFC converters, which can be installed and removed independent from the base software (Plug-in, Add-on). There are also third party products that enable IFC functionality for a base system.
- An online database to search for IFC compatible software is now available. You can search for application name, software vendor, application domain, supported IFC release and much more.
The IAI offers a facilitated certification program to interested software companies. This enables a basic level quality control and provides a platform to establish implementation agreements for better IFC support. See IFC-Developers or Certification & Validation for more developer support.
