BIM presentation / collaboration tool now available on mixed reality headset

Hot on the heels of the launch of Apple’s long awaited mixed reality headset, Graphisoft has released BIMx – BIM Experience for Apple Vision Pro, an interactive app for exploring BIM projects and linked documentation sets created in Archicad and DDScad.

The first version of BIMx on Apple’s visionOS supports full immersion mode in 3D. However, Graphisoft explains that navigation in the virtual model is experimental and will be fine-tuned.

“We’re actively working on solutions to bring you the immersive experience you crave. We have big plans for its evolution, with more features and enhancements scheduled for future updates,” wrote Graphisoft’s Emoke Csikos in a recent blog post.

Meawhile, Resolve, the AEC-focused design review solution, is also available for the Apple Vision Pro

Resolve is a collaborative VR tool that is well established on the Oculus Quest VR headset. It includes native integrations with Autodesk Construction Cloud (ACC) and Procore, where models are automatically kept up to date in VR without having to export or upload with each design change.

According to Resolve CEO, Angel Say, one of the key benefits of Apple Vision Pro in BIM and AEC workflows is in its ability to ‘supercharge multi-dimensional multitasking’.

In other words, viewing crisp 2D documents in a 3D spatial environment thanks to the headset’s incredibly high-resolution display.
