IFC who's using it?

We've had a few more companies recently wanting to know more about IFC & how to support it.

Just wanted to know how many people on here are actively using IFC ??

Lot's of companies in the Nordic, especially Norway and Finland. But they are not on this forum. I think AC14 will really raise the use of IFC. It's really simple now and the only way of improving it is to use it.

I'm guessing this is not just for affirmative replies - so I will say No, we are not using IFC.

Using it ...

but only because there is no real alternative for exchange of intelligent data with other BIM applications like Revit. Unfortunately IFC is really held back by its implementation in various platforms, e.g ArchiCAD is meant to be the most advanced but I have found export / import processes on large projects to be excruciatingly slow (i would say unworkable if there were any alternative)
