Hi Everyone,

I am interested in hearing your thoughts on eliminating the use of IFC as a file-based transaction and instead, transfer our building data via the web. The idea is we cut down on the amount of data being transferred, we don't need to be sending the same information over and over, just the data that has changed since the last time!

I am looking at projects like https://flux.io/ born from in the Google X labs and thinking it could eliminate the need for an IFC file based exchange system. Of course, IFC as an open data standard will be as important as ever to make sure those exchanges are correctly translated!

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

There are model servers like edm from epm-Jotne which accept and serve ifc files and API calls. IFC files and messages don't have to be big, if you can merge or link or federate.
Flux io is rather incompetent at ifc: a building is not a collection of 3D points especially if you ignore their being set out relatively not absolutely.

Norwegian hospitals are currently implementing Enterprise BIM (EBIM) based on an model server architecture. Jotne's EDMmodelServer.

Strategy document will be available soon: "National strategy for digitalization and BIM"

I did my project on BIMserver.org only. It works fine. Following is my article related to it:

Hi Alex, hope you are well. There are other ways to do this and much research in this area out of the Netherland (Eindhoven), Germany (Bonn), US (GIT), etc. Currently I use RDF graph representations of IFC data in one of my web based BIM tools I developed. Very simply this is a great mapping mechanism that establishes a pretty elegant highway for data transactions in many regards. In my case, an output format for when we converge the virtual BIM world with the real world using TLS data. Knowing what is the difference between what was constructed and what was the intended design, is of great benefit to many in the AEC/FM world. Remember that IFC (ISO 16739) is an ontology and ontologies can have many formats depending on the use of that ontology. Bill mentions formats used for COBie during construction and collaboration in general. These two formats are proof that one does not always rely on ISO 10303-21 STEP formatted IFC MVDs. IFC can used in many ways. Good luck on your quest!
