What software open BFC files???

Answers to this question

Hi Victor, The BIM Collaboration Format (BCF) is an open file format that introduces a workflow communication capability connected to IFC models. The idea with BCF is to separate the “communication” from the actual model. BCF format came originally as a suggestion from Tekla and Solibri and was endorsed by a number of other software vendors. In addition to Tekla BIMsight, BCF format is currently supported by Tekla Structures version 17.0 onwards (with Commenting tool - extension), Solibri Model Checker, Elvis and Kymdata's CADS Planner softwares. More information on the BCF format can be found here http://iug.buildingsmart.com/resources/abu-dhabi-iug-meeting/IDMC_017_1.pdf BR Heikki

Hello Heikki, also Data Design System is supporting BCF, within DDS-CAD MEP and DDS-CAD Viewer BCF is supported. In both tools the collaboration server can be used for sharing the BCF on the internet http://collab.dds.no. http://www.teklabimsight.com/photo.jsp?key=10088418-1f92-15c9-f1e0-000022de8efd Cheers Gertjan.
