How to open IFCXML files

Did your computer fail to open an IFCXML file? We explain what IFCXML files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your files.

What is an IFCXML file?

IFCXML files are ISO 10303-28 STEP-XML files, which you can read more about below.

The IFCXML file extension indicates to your device which app can open the file. However, different apps may use the same file extension for different types of data. So an IFCXML opener may not be able to open all kinds of IFCXML files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
