New update! Use BIMx Presenter to experience your design in a more immersive way!

BIMx Presents!

A BIMx ‘presentation set’ now might include model views previously created with ARCHICAD and saved in the Gallery; it can also be defined directly on the mobile device in the Favorites tab.

In addition to one-on-one project discussions, BIMx Presenter can be the highlight of any presentation when the smart-phone or tablet is connected to a TV screen or projector. Switch to continuous loop to automatically run the presentation in the background during meetings, exhibitions and conferences. Please watch the movie to see BIM Presenter in action!

Why BIMx?

From the architect’s desk to onsite coordination, take your design with you wherever you go! Here are just a few examples of how BIMx can support your everyday BIM communication workflow.

How it works

Multi-award winning BIMx embraces a unique Hyper-model technology for integrated 2D and 3D building project navigation.

Even the most complex and extensive models published from GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD can be presented on mobile devices, replacing ordinary design and construction viewer apps on both iOS and Android.

Intelligent Markers in the model represent hyper-links to the 2D layout sheets. Thanks to advanced map display technology, navigation in 2D is smooth and fast.
