Graphisoft’s New BIMx on the iPad breaks new ground
I haven’t gotten a chance yet to try it out, but I’m looking forward to giving it a whirl, and a pinch, and a double-tap. BIMx for the iPad/iPhone takes full advantage of the native multi-touch capabilities of the devices, and looks to be a lot of fun to explore.
I wrote a Tips and Tricks article about the original Virtual Building Explorer (the predecessor of BIMx) which explains some of the basic functionality of the desktop application.
A demo version of BIMx is now included with all installations of ArchiCAD 15, and a license code may be purchased from Graphisoft to activate all of it’s features. However, as part of a special promotion of the new app, all ArchiCAD 15 users may create full-fledged BIMx models and share them with their clients, either directly or through the new Facebook BIMx community site from September 20 through October 31.
