Blender 3.0: The beginner's guide

A couple of weeks ago, we posted an article about the development of a useful library that could help any artist to display an entire project in the wen easily. With the IFC.js, you can read IFC files and turn them into a format that is browser friendly. The IFC format is the standard to save and keep BIM data, and it is fully open-source.
