I presented a webinar yesterday via DBEI (Digital Built Environment Institute) with some of my personal thoughts and observations on the topic
of the infrastructure extension to IFC. This included some of the changes within the
Release Candidate Standard, as well as some research into comparisons with using
existing schema releases for representing linear infrastructure geometry (ie a 56KB IFC4x1 file
can result in a 100MB proprietary file if the intelligence can’t be preserved). Also some insights
into some work we’ve been doing on efficient downgrade of an IFC4x file.
This webinar is available on the free tier of DBEI for the next 7 days, if you’d like to watch it you can register on this link.
If anyone has comments or questions, I look forward to hearing them.
