Codemill IFC Exporter

Codemill IFC Exporter

Codemill Oy



With IFC Exporter you can export any file (or parts of large files) that can be opened in Autodesk® Navisworks® to the IFC format (IFC2x3 or IFC4). When exported, Navisworks model items can be mapped to corresponding IFC objects. This plugin will export both the model geometry and the related data (Property Sets).


The plugin functions in 2 different ways. The straightforward way is to select model items (selection) that you want to export from the Navisworks model and export them without mapping objects. If using this way, all entities in the IFC file are represented as IfcEquipmentElement. The second way is to use object mapping. For this, you need to create a predefined selection or search sets for each different object type in the Navisworks model and tell the plugin which IfcType to use when exporting them.

  • Does what promised

    Easy to convert NW model into IFC. Does what is promised.

  • Cannot extract information from Navisworks
    Heroly Luis Almeyda Gonzales | April 20, 2021

    I do not know if it is a problem with the IFC of my computers, but when executing the file it stays in the "saving" option and extracts a file of 4 kb which at the moment of opening it does not show anything, I would appreciate someone to help me.

  • For Revit and Plant3d
    Reginaldo Soares Barbosa | Juni 23, 2020

    First  of all, congrats for this great idea! I will use it to convert files to be oppened in Revit.

    I would like know, this plugin can be use to export Autocad plain files or Autodesk Plant3d files to open those in Advance Steel or Revit (after open in Navisworks, of course)?

    Thank you for your comments. Yes it can be used with any files that can be opened into the Navisworks. When Navisworks reads the source file, it will basically creates a triangle mesh of the model. After that the geometry of the model is almost equal between different source formats and can be saved as an IFC file

  • Does not export in the correct coordinate system
    Alejandro Iturriaga | Juni 16, 2020

    Tried it for exporting many files that were on US Survey feet and it exports without following the coordinate system.

    Jukka Meklin (Herausgeber) | Juli 02, 2020

    Thank you for the feedback, Please check that the model / submodels are not transformed / rotated in the Navisworks. Please also check that in File Options -> Orientation that Up vector is 0,0,1 and North vector is 0,1,0 If it is possible for you to send us the file, we are pleased to look at it
