GRAPHISOFT BIMx Tops 100,000 Downloads in Apple's App Store, Latest Release Introduces New Features

BUDAPEST, Hungary, Oct. 2, 2012 — (PRNewswire) —  As App Store downloads of popular BIMx app recently topped 100,000, GRAPHISOFT announced today a free update containing the latest innovations for its cutting-edge communication and presentation tool for BIM projects.

 

BIMx is an interactive environment that allows users to explore full BIM models without holding a license of the professional authoring software in which the building model was originally created.  With BIMx, ArchiCAD users have been able to publish self-running BIMx models for their clients to run on desktop computers (Win/Mac), as well as on iOS and Android devices putting BIM into the hands of all stakeholders not actively involved in the actual creation of the BIM model such as contractors, builders, clients, owners, and principals of design practices.

BIMx for iOS and Android devices

The new features available in the latest version of BIMx include:

  • Gallery: this function, previously available only in the desktop version of BIMx, allows users to define views and navigational routes; from these defined points, one can freely 'walk through' the model.
  • Guided navigation: this function restricts navigation of the model to those views previously saved in the Gallery

The latest version is available on all supported platforms, including iOS and Android.

BIMx Community on Facebook
The integrated BIMx community on Facebook is the central hub for sharing interactive 3D building models. Architects holding a BIMx license – either commercial or educational license – can publish their models directly to this online community. Native Facebook functions such as comments, likes and share are extended with customized functions for filtering models by educational or professional types; searching models using key-words or finding uploaded models of specific users, architects or clients. BIMx models can be uploaded, browsed and downloaded by non-Facebook users as well; only "liking" and "commenting" requires Facebook registration.  ArchiCAD users holding a full commercial BIMx license and an active Software Services Agreement can benefit from a cloud service exclusively provided by GRAPHISOFT for private model transfer. For more information, please contact your local ArchiCAD provider.
