IFC.js shows a demo of a BIM project in a browser
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.

As a plus, it will work on any system! It will work on either Windows, Linux, or macOS.
If you want to try that yourself, here are two demos available on the project page:
