Hey there and welcome to the IfcOpenShell blog.
IfcOpenShell is an open source implementation of the IFC standard that is geared towards extracting the geometry defined in IFC files. Support for creating and modifying IFC files will be provided in the future. IfcOpenShell is based on proven open source technology from the nice folks over at Open CASCADE, accelerating the development of IfcOpenShell to quickly reach production quality.
The heart of IfcOpenShell is the library of functions to interact with IFC files. Around this library an application and two plug-ins are built to provide IFC support for other applications.
