AIA: ARCHICAD users among first to benefit from IFC4 Reference View Export Certification

ARCHICAD 23 will gain IFC4 Reference View 1.2 Export certification when it ships later this year.


The AIA Convention has brought with it many announcements from digital technology solution providers, and the biggest week in America for architects was not without news from GRAPHISOFT, a global leader in BIM technologies.

The Hungarian software company has announced an important milestone in its support for OPEN BIM, being among the first to receive IFC4 Reference View Export Certification (Architectural Reference Exchange).

Open BIM — IFC 4 Reference View Export

A pioneer in the OPEN BIM movement, GRAPHISOFT implements the universal open BIM approach based on open standards and workflows using the buildingSMART data model, which provides benefits for the collaborative design, construction and operation of buildings.

GRAPHISOFT has announced the all-new ARCHICAD 23 has gained IFC4 Reference View Export certification.

“ARCHICAD is recognized internationally as the BIM solution providing the most comprehensive IFC import and export.  ARCHICAD users have absolute control to determine all the parameters of the elements to be included in the IFC file,” said Miklos Szovenyi-Lux, OPEN BIM Program Manager, GRAPHISOFT. “At GRAPHISOFT, we believe that providing open collaboration workflows is in the best interest of our customers and the industry as a whole to achieve greater productivity and ultimately a better-built environment.”

  1. May I be among the first to offer my congratulations for this certification – glad to see another Nemetschek Group company following in the footsteps of Vectorworks Inc who were the first to receive IFC 4 Certification a few months ago.

  2. You are correct Martyn. Vectorworks 2019 appears the first BIM authoring tool to support IFC 4 Reference View Export Certification 1.2 ( though Revit 2020 was released in the April time-frame as well with IFC 4 Reference View support.
