Geometry Gym • Grasshopper to IFC Plugin that Works Well

Geometry Gym generates data in OpenBIM formats (primarily IFC) that can be directly imported into any BIM software. This plugin uses the dataflow modelling capabilities of Grasshopper to directly generate the IFC exchange model, thereby avoiding the need for a separate exporter altogether. The advantage is that it doesn’t have to deal with the explicit geometry generated by the baking process. And it does a very good job of generating the IFC. However, the disadvantage is that the dataflow model becomes riddled with data exchange nodes that have only marginal relevance to the parametric modelling task.
