ODA is a not-for-profit technology consortium that builds Software Development Kits (SDKs) for popular CAD and BIM standards including IFC, .dwg, and Autodesk Revit files. ODA software is used by more than 1000 companies world-wide, and its solutions are a recognized standard in the industry. OGC’s leadership in creating open standards forms a natural synergy with ODA’s expertise in standards implementation. The partnership between OGC and ODA is intended to develop and strengthen this synergy to the benefit of both organizations and the broader community.
