Introduction

Using GRAPHISOFT BIMx Desktop Viewer (BIMx), you can explore the 3D building models created with GRAPHISOFT ARCHICAD in an interactive way.

BIMx Desktop Viewer is available free from here:

http://www.graphisoft.com/products/bim-explorer/downloads.html

BIMx provides real-time 3D navigation in an architectural design – enhanced with gravity, layer control, fly-mode, egress recognition and pre-saved walk-throughs – for the ultimate design exploration of 3D model content.

Element information, such as surface finishes, volumes, sizes and quantities, can also be displayed with a click of the mouse. Exact measurements can be taken during the real-time walkthrough to help design decisions and forecast cost-related design issues.

ARCHICAD projects can be published as BIMx models (*.bimx) using either a wizard or the Publisher function.

See the ARCHICAD Reference Guide for more information.

Free BIMx models are available on the GRAPHISOFT BIMx Site: bimx.graphisoft.com

The BIMx Quick Reference Card gives you a quick overview of the application’s keyboard shortcuts. You can download this PDF file from this web page:
