IFC parsing in node.js

Newbie question:
Is there a way to parse ifc file in node.js? or convert ifc to json in node.js?

Hi Asi,

You could take a look at our ifc json project, it’s still a work in progress but you even might be able to contribute something.
Look for IFCJSON-Team and IFC2JSON_python on Github.


@jbrouwer - Thanks a lot. will take a look.

If you’re looking for a graphical BIM authoring tool which supports IFCJSON, the BlenderBIM Add-on supports both IFCJSON v4 and v5.

Oh, and I think @ian might have support for typescript in IFC-gen, but I didn’t look too closely :slight_smile:

I recommend you to use IFC2JSON or Geometry gym, which has a function in database class to convert to JSON. I am working in a similar project and I didn’t found another option. I hope that building smart work harder in this topic.
