An open, crowd-sourced library of IFC and BIM files

Ryan Schultz is working on Revit-->IFC-->Revit translations, and he has created a open source page as a focus for test and sample files.  Here is the link:

Interestingly, Ryan is looking into IFC translations with ArchiCAD, Vectorworks, Microstation, Tekla and others.  The mixed environment of BIM software on collaborative projects is proving a challenge to many teams.  Ok, we can't all work with Revit (maybe one day), but for now we have to find a way to share our models with high geometry fidelity and without losing the actual intelligence of BIM data.

I'm sure Ryan would be keen to hear from you, perhaps via Twitter or the github page.

Let's work together to learn how to work together...
