BIM Import 

The BIM Import extension allows you to import 3D CAD buildings directly into ESBO, using the open and neutral IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) format, and export simulation results back to the CAD tool.



The IFC format, which is commonly used for BIM (Building Information Modelling) models, includes geometry (walls, roofs, windows and doors) and sets of properties (for walls and materials). All leading CAD tools can export to the IFC format, such as ArchiCAD, AutoCAD Architecture, Autodesk Revit, Bentley Architecture, DDS CAD, MagiCAD, Plancal Nova and many more. Basically any CAD tool that can export IFC files with spaces and space boundaries can be supported in ESBO.


  • Available as extension for paid ESBO
  • Requires ESBO version 2.3 (or higher)
