I am curious if there is a list of IFC software that meets the following criteria:
- Parses IFC4.
- Available on Linux
Additional features that I would enjoy are:
- Writes IFC4.
- Visualises geometry.
- Supports querying and filtering.
I note that FreeCAD satisfies all the criteria. I have found that I am also able to compile IfcPlusPlus on Linux, although there is a bit of confusion over licensing (repo says MIT, website says “This application is free to use, but not open source.”, but perhaps it is only referring to the Windows-compiled IfcQuery tool, because the viewer I compiled seems to be a stunted version of IfcQuery.
The list of implementations leaves a lot to be desired, and some links are broken.
I hope others can share if they know of any other tools? Open source tools and platform independent tools (especially for Linux, which is an absolutely great platform for data wrangling and software development) is vital to the success of an international open standard.
