View 3D IFC Files Online

Use this free tool to view your 3D IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) files online without needing to install any software. Our IFC viewer tool will generate a real-time 3D preview of your IFC file with Pan and Zoom controls, allowing you to see your 3D model from any angle.

Our IFC viewing tool can load most IFC files, and we are working on improvements all the time to improve compatibility with all file formats. If you are looking to convert your 2D image files to 3D files, such as STL, then we have a 2D to 3D conversion tool here.

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.
