IFC and estimating

Jake
Contributor

Hello everyone

the idea is to develop a WEB-based estimating software, which can import IFC files and link item descriptions from the database.

Obviously, on the Archicad side it is necessary to assign some code(s) to each item.

Once the IFC is imported, the types and items are created and ready to be sent to contractors.

Anyone interested in this?

Jake,  I would love to see that,  automatically link to an external database via classification & properties from within Archicad.  nice to have the ability to assign multiple "codes" or "recipes"or tags?  to a single Archicad element!!

Is there someone who want to help from AC side, to make some testing and basic things, like try to assign code/ID to element, to export IFC file etc.? We can use private messaging. Thanks.
