Print from BIMx PRO (Android)

by Brieuc Tassel · updated: 08.02.2016

BIMx Hyper-models can contain Documentation for the entire Project. It can come in handy to print out portions of this Documentation for the Client, a Contractor or other parties in the AEC workflow. BIMx PRO on Android introduces Google Cloud Print that allows wireless printing from your Android tablet to any printer supporting this technology.

Use the Google Cloud Print app for Android

Cloud Ready Printers

Open the view you would like to print

You can print any of the 2D Layouts or 3D views from BIMx PRO in a WYSIWYG manner. Zoom into a portion of the Drawing to print only that part. Highlight a Building element on the printed view by Selecting it in the 3D view.

Choose Print from the Menu and configure Print settings

Once you chose the view, tap the option menu button in the top right corner (3 vertical dots) of the application and choose Print. On the next two pages you can define the Printing settings:

BIMx Android _ Print settings

Print Area defines whether you print the Entire Drawing or only the region you are currently zoomed into. Setting Scale to Original lets you print the drawing in the size that was defined within ARCHICAD for the Layout. Choosing Fit to page adjusts the printed image proportionally to the paper borders.

Tap Printer on the 3rd page to detect your Cloud Print devices. After setting up the number of Copies you are all set to Print the Documentation you needed.
