Open source WebGL viewer for IFC models

BIM Surfer® is an open source web-based viewer toolkit for the visualisation of BIM data from IFC.

Run it yourself:

Get the source from github.

– A web browser with support for HTML5 Canvas and WebGL extension (Firefox, Chrome, maybe some more).
– BIM data in glTF, or IFC data on a running recent version of the open source BIMserver.

BIM Surfer® is an initiative from the open source BIM collective. Most of this work was funded by the Netherlands organisation for applied scientific research TNO. We trust on BIMserver and IfcOpenShell for all the geometry generation.
