STEP and IFC Export to X3D
Abstract. The STEP and IFC standardized data models are widely used in the industry. Existing software machinery does not enable to easily take advantage of all the information contained in those files, for usual industrial processes. The X3D standard comes with a rich data model and the related technology to handle and visualize the data. In this paper, we present a methodology to perform a controlled conversion from STEP/IFC to X3D. A practical implementation is introduced, exercised, and made available to the community as a free software package.
