Do we make use of these tools for our bim component?

man who has not learned how to learn - Alvin Toffler
Thanks for the link, I didn't know that project...
Actually what we use in the Arch workbench is IfcOpenShell
As far as I can see the main functionality of xbim is to provide IFC import
and export, which is exactly what ifcopenshell does/will do (export is
being implemented right now)
Looking at the code, xbim seems more mature than ifcopenshell, but it also
looks pretty windows-only... There might also be license compatibility
issues. So we're probably better
with ifcopenshell, not to mention the good and productive relationship we
have with its author.
Anyway, it's thrilling to see all those IFC-based project appearing... This
really shows that the opensource world has chosen its side in the pro IFC /
against IFC debate...
