GRAPHISOFT has been recognized with two Best of Show awards from Architosh, a leading online publication devoted to Mac and iOS CAD and 3D software professionals and students. The BEST of SHOW awards are announced based on software and technologies demonstrated during the 2014 AIA National Convention and Expo. Editor-in-Chief Anthony Frausto-Robledo, AIA, LEED, AP selected what he considered the best software items in four categories: desktop, mobile, BIM and innovation.

In the mobile category, the Best of Show honor goes to BIMx Docs.

GRAPHISOFT’s mobile presentation app debuted in October of 2013 and since then has been quickly recognized as a revolutionary way to share and present BIM to contractors, project members and clients.

BIMx Docs does something no other app in the world does,” says Anthony Frausto-Robledo AIA LEED AP, “it has laid down the ultimate UI/UX paradigm for how to visually connect BIM geometry models to the visual world of 2D drawings, something the public for the most part still assumes architects spend most of their day doing.  …BIMx Docs is an elegant and useful tool to bring BIM model data and their associated drawings into the field or the remote client office.”

GRAPHISOFT was also a recipient of a Best of Show award in the BIM category.

“The winner of this year’s BIM category, Graphisoft’s ArchiCAD 18 with BIMcloud technology … its usefulness is very impressive,” says Anthony Frausto-Robledo, AIA LEED AP. “Graphisoft’s delta technology is already in a class by itself because it reduces the transferred difference data (delta) down to 100 kilobyte chunks, something that is more than an order of magnitude smaller than its biggest rival. What’s really impressive to me is that you can scale up through the cloud without stopping your teams and access to the BIM data.”
