BIMx, has been in use since 2011 and it has been recognized as a revolutionary, game-changing app. As a presentation tool, it is unmatched in its ability to help architects communicate design intent and provide understanding to clients – even those with limited experience or exposure to architectural concepts.
Though the app has been available for about a month and a half, ArchiCAD users are already seeing its benefits on the job site.
“In my first use of BIMx docs, I presented a very complex subsurface parking structure on a job site,” said Joseph Vance of Brooklyn-based Joseph Vance Architects. “Engineers, fabricators and erectors were there. Not only were they blown away by what they’d seen – in just a few minutes they all understood a complicated situation everyone had been wringing their hands over for days. Once they were able to fully understand the conditions, they came up with a solution in 15 minutes.”
BIMx Docs offers lightning fast navigation within and across large layout books. Even if you are only working with 2D drawings, BIMx Docs offers unbeatable performance based on Map app technology.
