Do you have to use #Autodesk #Revit at work as an #architect or #engineer, or know somebody who does?

Please talk to them about how to create #IFC files, the ISO open-data standard to help improve industry interoperability and improve the quality of your #BIM files. I've written a handy guide here, even if you're completely new to IFC.

Let's bring #opensource to the AEC industry. It's ethically important to increase transparency in the design of the built environment!


@thinkMoult I have to use for work. It's one of the worst applications I've ever used, but it's such an industry standard we can't use anything else.

@rchive I know how you feel.

Please find a way to ask consultants for IFCs and use them. Open data formats is the first step forward to breaking the Autodesk monopoly.

Liberdon is a Mastodon instance for libertarians, ancaps, anarchists, voluntaryists, agorists, etc to sound off without fear of reprisal from jack or zuck. It was created in the wake of the Great Twitter Cullings of 2018, when a number of prominent libertarian accounts were suspended or banned.
