Budapest, May 10, 2018 – GRAPHISOFT®, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) architectural software developer, has introduced a significant update to its multi award-winning BIM presentation and communication app, BIMx. Available for both iOS and Android users, the new Presenter feature allows architects and clients to experience building designs in a more immersive and organized way.
BIMx Hyper-models incorporate 3D building views and 2D documentation sets, while also providing an intuitive, game-like viewing experience on tablets and smart-phones. With the new Presenter feature, architects can hand-pick the most expressive 3D model views or drawings and organize them into an animated presentation on their smart-phones and tablets.
A BIMx ‘presentation set’ 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. This includes 3D model views, floor plans and sections, as well as detail drawings, interior elevations and construction details on layouts.
“Our intention was to develop a presentation tool that guides the audience through the building design concept in a dynamic and fascinating way. By combining live BIM models and traditional drawings, BIMx enables architects to tell their design story in a way that leaves a more lasting impression than with any other presentation software,” said Gyuri Nyitrai, BIMx Product Manager at GRAPHISOFT.
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.
BIMx is available in the App Store and on Google Play. The BIMx Presenter feature is available to BIMx PRO license holders or by connecting through BIMcloud. Please visit the BIMx product site for more information and watch this short video for further details.
