BIMx — the ultimate BIM project presentation application — features the BIMx Hyper-model, a unique technology for integrated 2D and 3D building project navigation. With the BIMx Hyper-model, you get smooth handling and outstanding performance. Even for projects with complex 3D models and extensive 2D documentation.
Navigating in the Hyper-Model
What makes BIMx Hyper-models unique? Model-based, context-sensitive hyperlinks. Conceptually, these are a lot like other hyperlinks on the Web. The difference: their location in space adds an invaluable extra dimension to understanding the model, while making it easy to navigate.
With 3D-cutaways, you can virtually cut through a building using just an interactive slider. This powerful coordination tool lets all viewers gain a deeper understanding of the project and its spatial relations.
Drawings within the Model Context
Many people ﬁnd 2D and 3D difﬁcult to work with simultaneously. Not anymore. With BIMx PRO’s smooth transitions and context-sensitive information overlay, moving between dimensions becomes a breeze.
Updates from the Cloud
With a direct link to BIM projects in ARCHICAD, BIMx offers smooth and easy communication with stakeholders outside the ofﬁce. The Document picker in BIMx enables popular cloud storage services like iCloud or Dropbox to be linked to your App, so downloading and opening BIMx Models is as seamless as possible. GRAPHISOFT’s cloud-based BIMx Model Transfer makes sure sharing your projects with clients is secure and effective.
Custom Element Info Sets
Building Information Models contain an enormous amount of information. Architects can now choose from a variety of information sets to be published with their Hyper-model. Using Apple’s data detector, any info in the info box is recognizable as email, a telephone number, a weblink, an address, providing direct links to the appropriate Mobile App. Enter the weblink to a certain furniture store, the database of building utilities, etc., for fast and smooth communication and organization.
Zone Info and Orientation Labels
Zone Stamps on the Floor Plans and Zone Labels in the 3D model are interactive within the BIMx model. By tapping on these items you can access Zone info tags where architects can provide additional information about any space-related details. Real-estate agents and Building operators keep information about room ﬁnishes and other accessory details packed in Zone info tags, which can be accessed with a tap on the Zone Label.
Present new details to the clients or on the construction site, replace a lost or obsolete drawing and have it ready for documentation. In BIMx PRO, you can seamlessly print 3D and 2D contents of BIMx Hyper-models from iOS devices on AirPrint-capable printers. Even non-professionals like clients, or contractors can quickly obtain prints right from BIMx without the need to use ARCHICAD. Print the entire drawing, or zoom in to a detail of the 3D view or 2D drawings. Whatever it takes to get the point across, faster
Bi-directional Element Access
Connect BIMx Elements with external FM databases, product websites or catalogs and more. Using hyperlinks that point to speciﬁc elements of the model, you can access the elements for swift targeting and controlling from inside other apps on the device. And vice versa, any element info tag can be prepared with links to open the appropriate mobile app, like a browser or email.
