What is an IFCZIP file?

IFCZIP files are STEP-XML compressed files, which you can read more about below.

The IFCZIP 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 IFCZIP opener may not be able to open all kinds of IFCZIP files. In this case, though, we only know of one specific use.
