Autodesk is committed to advancing interoperability throughout the AEC industry. Recognizing the complexity of infrastructure and building projects, Autodesk supports professionals in the use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) data and software applications.

The Autodesk commitment to interoperability

Autodesk supports buildingSMART International, the organization that develops and maintains the IFC standard for both Buildings and Civil Infrastructure. IFC is widely recognized as the leading interoperability standard, and more than 150,000 users have downloaded our IFC Open Source export for Revit since 2011.

Autodesk supports the buildingSMART initiative on COBie (Construction Operations Building Information Exchange) BIM data standard.
