The xBIM Xplorer is a free, open-source IFC viewer that comes in two versions: stand-alone and web version.
Written in C#, the xBIM Xplorer was created to demonstrate the capabilities of The xBIM Toolkit. It allows users to:
- Open and view IFC files.
- Navigate through a model to see detailed information of the building such as thickness of roof, number of doors, etc.
- Show and hide parts of the building.
- View a model in 360° degrees.
- Export the IFC files as .ifcXML, ifcZIP files.
Below are some screenshots demonstrating the functionalities as outlined above.
