BIM project presentation on mobile devices
Multi-award winning BIMx features the Hyper-model, a unique technology for integrated 2D and 3D building project navigation. BIMx helps bridge the gap between the design studio and the construction site.
BIMx is available in two versions in the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Choose the version that works best for you.
Mainly for clients, BIMx provides FREE OF CHARGE access to the 2D and 3D view of any BIMx building Hyper-model.
In-app purchases are available to access or share BIMx ‘PRO’ functionality, even across platforms.
Key features of BIMx:
Walk or fly through a project in 3D.
Get the real deal: View all published layouts, drawings, schedules, and other documentation.
Hyperlinked 2D & 3D
Thanks to intelligent markers, 2D layouts are linked to the model like hyperlinks on the Web, enabling quick transitions.
Swithching between dimensions is more comprehensible for all stakeholders thanks to animated transitions.
Walk around naturally, even up the stairs. Tap a door to walk through. Tap an object to approach it.
All-round 3D Cutaways
In addition to the Cutaways on the Floor-plan, cut through a section of the model with a slider, giving total clarity in spatial relations for any viewer.
Cloud Storage Access
Download and open BIMx projects from your file storage apps seamlessly in BIMx.
Custom Per-Element Info Sets
Load up the Model Elements with information about – basically – anything. Control who sees what, specific to their needs.
Zone Info Display
Info Sets work for Zones as well. Provide building operators with room finishes or any other space-related details.
For architects, building and operations professionals, BIMx PRO grants access to exclusive productivity tools, turning the BIMx app into a powerful and open information hub and communication platform, which helps identify and solve issues right on site.
Additional features available in BIMx PRO:
Smart 2D and 3D Measure on iOS
Boost productivity by reading length, angle and area measurements on-the-go with an intuitive and precise measure tool.
AirPrint and Google Cloud Print
Replace lost or obsolete drawings on the go with BIMx, without even touching ARCHICAD. Print your Hyper-model’s 3D or 2D content seamlessly from your device.
External link to Access Elements
Locate 3D Elements in BIMx from an external website, facility management database or catalog.
All-round 3D Cutaways
Quickly check and mark-up on site. Grab a screenshot, redline it and send it back to the office for real-time team collaboration. All from your onsite device.
From the architect’s desk to onsite coordination, take your design with you wherever you go! Here are just a few examples of how BIMx can support your everyday BIM communication workflow.
BIM Data Access Everywhere
Building Information Models contain an enormous amount of information.
Choose from a variety of information sets to be published with your Hyper-model, packed into every Building Element and Zone Tag.
Synced Updates from the Cloud
Popular Cloud storage services like iCloud or Dropbox can be linked to your App, so downloading and opening BIMx Models is as seamless as possible. GRAPHISOFT’s cloud-based BIMx Model Transfer service ensures secure and effective sharing of your projects.
External Links to BIMx Elements
Link to BIMx Elements from external facility management databases or websites and more in BIMx PRO.
Access the elements from spreadsheet apps or browsers on the device for swift targeting and control using hyperlinks that point to specific elements of the model.
Smart Measure on iOS
Get precise data from the 3D model or the 2D plans in BIMx PRO. This in-demand productivity feature is a must for building professionals and onsite coordinators who have to know their numbers.
Team Collaboration in the Cloud
BIMx PRO is not only a great presentation tool, but takes advantage of the GRAPHISOFT BIMcloud infrastructure. Team messaging, redlining and photo attachments all serve to bridge the gap between the design office and onsite professionals to achieve a real-time, continuous BIM workflow.
Print using AirPrint or Google Cloud Print
Present new details to clients in the office or on the construction site, replace a lost or obsolete drawing and have it ready for documentation. Print 3D and 2D contents of BIMx Hyper-models seamlessly, right from your device.
How it works
Multi-award winning BIMx embraces a unique Hyper-model technology for integrated 2D and 3D building project navigation.
Even the most complex and extensive models published from GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD can be presented on mobile devices, replacing ordinary design and construction viewer apps on both iOS and Android.
Intelligent Markers in the model represent hyper-links to the 2D layout sheets. Thanks to advanced map display technology, navigation in 2D is smooth and fast.
We certainly use BIMx. The models are very easy to produce by anyone. It’s been excellent for client liaison in discussing design alternatives.”
