Now there are more devices that can operate GRAPHISOFT’s BIMx application (an ENR top app) the cutting-edge communication and presentation tool for BIM projects. Visit the Amazon AppStore and get the application for Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire Gen 2.
BIMx provides an interactive environment in which users can see full BIM models even if they do not hold a license in 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); on iOS and Android devices, BIMx puts 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 as well.
As always, the integrated BIMx community on Facebook provides a central hub for sharing interactive 3D building models. Architects who hold a BIMx license – either commercial or educational – are permitted to publish their models directly to this online community. The community works with all the familiar Facebook functionality such as comments, likes and share. But our BIMx community goes a step further and adds 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 even if you don’t have a Facebook account – but you won’t be able to comment about or like any model.
In addition, 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.
