This is how you export your models to IFC from Rhino. Once you have exported your files you can upload them to the Tridify BIM Publishing Service and create & share a 3D viewer.

Rhino does not natively support IFC export, nor does it manipulate or assign IFC specifications to geometry.
Currently there are several ways to get a data-rich IFC file from Rhino to Tridify BIM Publishing Service:
1. Rhino + VisualARQ plugin (by Asuni CAD)
Allows creating IFC objects and the import and export of IFC files.
- To save the entire model, go to File > Save as... and save the model as an IFC file
- To save a part of the model, select the objects to export and go to File > Export and save the model as an IFC file
2. Rhino + RhinoIFC plugin (by GeometryGym)
Allows assigning IFC types by layer and the import and export of IFC files.
3. Rhino + SketchUp Pro
Rhino natively supports the SKP (SketchUp) file export.
In SketchUp, you can assign IFC types to components and import and export IFCs.
