XbimExchange is part of the Xbim Toolkit.
It contains libraries and applications that you can use to build applications that need to translate between different BIM File formats using the core XBIM Ifc data model.
This is the home of a number of related libraries:
- Xbim.COBie : a library to convert IFC files to COBie XLSX file
- And a Windows Client
- Xbim.Exchanger : a toolkit to map between a variety of formats include COBie, COBieLite, IFC and DPoW
- XbimXplorer Plugins:
Visual Studio 2017 or higher is recommended.
The free VS 2019 Community Edition will be fine. All projects target .NET Framework 4.7
The XBIM toolkit uses the NuGet for the management of several packages. We have custom NuGet feeds for the master and develop branches of the solution, and use Myget for CI builds. The nuget.config file should automatically add these feeds for you.
Thanks also to Microsoft Azure DevOps for the use of Azure Pipelines to automate our builds.
