BIMx Docs In-App purchase: Sharing for current Project

by Csaba Kézér · updated: 03.24.2014

Share your BIMx Hyper-model (containing the 2D plans) with your clients with a single purchase. The new In-App purchase option ‘Sharing for current Project’ lets you buy and share your model with all of its 2D content to make it free for your clients and peers.

You can buy this option both in the free BIMx App for iOS and in the paid BIMx Docs App.

Follow these steps to share the license with your Clients:

Tap on settings menu when the model is opened

Open the desired model in BIMx or BIMx Docs, and choose ‘Share this project’ (in BIMx Docs) or ‘BIMx Store’ (in BIMx).

  • The link will remain active for 7 days. That is, your peers have a week to load the shared hyper-model in their BIMx apps.
  • Once the hyper-model has been loaded on a certain device, it can be updated for free — as many times as needed, without any time constraints.

Downloading BIMx model with the 2D content available

BIMx starts downloading the model and displays ‘Access granted’ message. After the download is finished, the Client will be able to check the 2D plans in their BIMx Hyper-model.
