BIMx IS A VIEWER APP — DOWNLOAD ONLY IF YOU WANT TO VIEW ARCHICAD MODELS ON YOUR MOBILE DEVICE(S)
GRAPHISOFT's mobile BIM communication tool, BIMx, is the ultimate BIM project communication app. It features the 'BIMx Hyper-model', a unique technology for navigating the integrated drawing sheet and 3D building model, and for displaying building component information. The BIMx Hyper-model offers extremely smooth handling and outstanding performance, even for projects with complex 3D models and extensive 2D documentation. BIMx allows project stakeholders to access the complete construction documentation of buildings with the tap of a finger - even on the job site.
If you are an architect using ARCHICAD, BIMx is the perfect tool to present and/or share your designs with clients and contractors. In addition to making the whole workflow virtually hassle-free, BIMx will save you considerable money and spare you the misery that comes from printing out plans. You can unlock the unlimited BIMx PRO functionality for less than the cost of printing a single documentation set.
If you are not an architect but are involved in a construction project, just ask your architect to share the project’s BIMx Hyper-model to your iPhone/iPad.

Miscellaneous bug fixes
Ratings and Reviews
Very good- room for improvement
This has been a great tool for communicating with clients. I have a few suggestions for future upgrades:
My clients tend to find the user interface hard to use at first. It responds too rapidly to user input- you try to move a bit and find yourself on the other side of the building. There are "tricks" to solve this, but this only gives the impression that it's more complicated than it is.
The same surface is rendered differently depending on what kind of element it's applied to. I have a model with gypsum board on the walls and a barrel vaulted ceiling and the ceiling is darker than the walls (no, this is not the result of lighting!)
It would be great top have access to layers in the iPad app as we do in the desktop version.
Navigation in the desktop version is even harder than in the app. Rotating the model is especially difficult.
I'd like a grayscale shading option in the app. Clients get bogged down by materials when they view a model. I don't want to create a model without surfaces just for BIMx, I'd like to be able to turn them off and have simple grayscale shading instead.
ArchiCAD Model Viewer
This is an app to download 3D files created in ArchiCAD. Become a master ArchiCAD guru and wow your clients with this powerful addition to your presentation tools!
Can’t Use Ruler
This is a decent viewer of the various layers of our architect-provided home plan, but the measuring tool (ruler) is disabled unless you “go pro” for $49. Why should I pay $49 to be able to measure things in my own house plan?
