BIMx mobile for iOS and Android devices has been upgraded, with the addition of several new features.
Real-time 3D Cutaway lets a user create a floor plan-like overview of the BIM by cutting the BIMx model on a horizontal plane. In this way, users can locate internal model parts much more easily than using the explore method. The 3D Cutaway also makes the view a more simple concept to grasp for non-professional viewers – for example, those who may be in attendance at a town planning meeting.
The FPS (frame per second) rate has been sped up, resulting in a faster rendering engine. Models load in a shorter time period – an average of two to three times faster than before – and provide a significantly better user experience during model navigation. The models also use less memory – opening the way for larger models to be accessed in BIMx.
