Building Explorer (BIMx) is an innovative, interactive, communication tool for designers settings new standards for communication and presentation, for Windows/Mac OS workstations, and iOS/Android mobile devices.

BIMx now provides access to the full set of project information including 2D documents 3D models and any non-geometric data incorporated into a BIM workflow including:-

  • 3D Content
  • 2D Content
  • Hyperlinked 2D & 3D
  • Smooth Transitions
  • Real-World-like Experience
  • All-round 3D Cutaways
  • Cloud Storage Access
  • Custom Per-Element Info Sets
  • Zone Info Display

The new Presenter feature allows designers and clients to experience buildings in a more immersive and organised way. ARCHICAD designers can hand-pick the most expressive 3D model views or drawings and organise them into an animated presentation on their smartphones and tablets.

In addition to one-on-one project discussions, BIMx Presenter can be the highlight of any presentation when the smartphone 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 Simple navigation

Walk around the model to explore the project, or jump to specific parts of the model through gallery snapshots, layout sheets, or markers within the 3D environment.


Drawings and documentation in context

BIMx PRO’s smooth transitions and context-sensitive information overlay allow the drawings and building data to be viewed within the context of the 3D model. View all published layouts, drawings, schedules, and other documentation, while 3D cutting planes position the drawings in the correct 3D space.

Communicating BIM data

Building components keep their intelligence, so filtering and querying parametric BIM object information is available instantly. Tap on an element or zone to display relevant BIM data – which you choose to export from the ARCHICAD model – such as ID numbers, geometry, finishes, product codes, and web links.
