ODA IFC SDK is a complete solution for professional IFC development that is widely used within the BIM industry. IFC 4.3 RC1 is the latest candidate release of IFC, published by buildingSMART® International (bSI) in April 2020.

“With the latest ODA IFC SDK, BIM software vendors can quickly integrate IFC 4.3 RC1 into their products,” said Neil Peterson, ODA President. “This is especially important for vendors who are participating in bSI’s validation process for the new standard.

“To further support bSI’s efforts, our free OpenIfcViewer is available to anyone involved in the 4.3 RC1 validation process. We’ll be updating both the SDK and the viewer as bSI publishes additional modifications to the standard.”
