@esther,

There is no built-in connector for IFC Standard in Power BI Desktop, please cntact IFC support if it has REST API or database behind it. it is possible to connect straight to the REST API or the database from Power BI Desktop.

Re: Power BI and BIM formats

Hello

There are some ways to parse the IFC and do some data analysis using third-party (also opensource) software. e.g. https://github.com/IfcOpenShell/ifcopenshell-jupyterhub

You can drop me an email for further info: post.ddemin@gmail.com

Sincerely
