Currently there is a good set of tools that allow the use of the BIM methodology, but they are mainly closed source commercial software. This makes it difficult to reuse the data and automate it in the different phases of the asset's life cycle. This work approaches the automation of processes based on the BIM modelling with Blender in two case studies, through the development of Python scripts: an arch bridge type structure, frequently used in civil engineering, and a basic architectural model. For this purpose, a tool was developed in Python extension format for Blender, with the IfcOpenShell library, to export models created to the standard exchange schema IFC (Industry Foundation Classes). The proposal provides a simplification of the processes necessary to carry out the IFC modelling of a structure and a basic architectural model such as those presented in the case studies. Currently we have to classify the modelled elements one by one. The developed extension allows to model and then perform the assignment to IFC entities to all the elements of the BIM model.
