A complete or a partial IFC model can be exported into VRML 1.0 or 2.0 by using the IfcViewer ( or see Free Software).

Export Workflow


  • select "File-->Export As-->VRML 1 (single file) or VRML 1 (multiple file) or ..."
  • For partial export select an entity in the project structure and use the context menu
  • confirm or change the file name or in case of multiple file the directory name
  • confirm input by pressing ok
