bimstore Eye pitched as a fun, new way for specifiers to visualise construction products
bimstore Eye is a new augmented reality app from BIM content provider BIMstore. The iPhone and iPad app is designed to help specifiers explore products for use in BIM models – simply point the camera at a manufacturer’s brochure image or catalogue where the BIMstore Eye logo is displayed and a 3D representation appears on screen. The model can then be viewed in various orientations and sizes, including to the actual product scale.
Not all bimstore products currently work with the app but BIMstore says that more will be added every day.
“bimstore Eye is a fun, new way for specifiers to visualise construction products,” states bimstore founder Adam Ward. “Because bimstore Eye is part of our growing ecosystem, we are hoping it will help manufacturers and their sales teams show off their BIM content, whilst specifiers can get a first look at their downloads.”
bimstore has provided a number of example brochures for users to test out. They can be downloaded here.
