iOS and Android BIM presentation app now lets users sync the latest model revisions via the cloud
Graphisoft has added cloud storage access to its iOS and Android-based BIM presentation app, BIMx (http://www.graphisoft.com/bimx/). Users can now sync the latest version of project models by linking to popular cloud storage services like iCloud and Dropbox.
Graphisoft has also added a number of new features to BIMx Pro.
‘Control Per-Element Info’ allows users to fuse Building Element Information into every bit of the model. From model element quantities to external web links to manufacturer product sheets, Graphisoft says the designer can now share information specific to each stakeholder’s needs. Using Apple’s data detector technology, the information in an info tag is recognised as an e-mail, telephone number, hyperlink or address, providing direct links to the corresponding mobile app.
Support for AirPrint means users can now print 3D and 2D content from BIMx Hyper-models from iOS devices on AirPrint-compatible printers.
Finally, Zone Stamps on the Floor Plans and Zone Labels in the 3D model are now interactive within the BIMx model. By tapping on these items you can access Zone info tags where architects can provide additional information about room finishes or any other space-related details.
