The IFC format (Industry Foundation Classes) is an open format used to describe construction and building-related data in a standardized way. The first version was released in 1996, has continued to evolve over the years, and continues to be updated to this day.

IFC files are text-based and contain data primarily aimed at the building industry. An example of the data contained is 3D model/object geometry data. IFC files can be opened in most CAD programs and some 3D modeling programs.

The ZIP file is one of the most common types of compressed file types available and is widely used to compress any file type and give great compression results, leading to smaller file sizes. ZIP files were originally released in 1989, and over time, the format has undergone many revisions.

ZIP archives can contain any number of folders and files and can use many different compression algorithms to perform the file compression, though DEFLATE is the most common one in use. The format has built-in support in many operating systems, including Mac OS and Microsoft Windows.
