Our customers often ask how they can display their design in black and white in BIMx. There are two ways to achieve this:
Use the built-in Shading option or Render Mode in the app
- This option is only available if the 3D model was exported with Global Illumination. You can read more about this here.
- This is where you can select Black and White option:
In BIMx mobile: go to Settings > Shading > Select Black and White
in BIMx Desktop Viewer: go to Settings > Render Mode > Black and White
2. Apply Graphic Overrides in ARCHICAD
The other way is to apply Graphic Overrides in the 3D view before BIMx export. (Document > Graphic Overrides > Graphic Override Combinations…) (3D styles are only applied in ARCHICAD thus will not show in BIMx.) Working with Graphic Overrides can be a good method if you want to display a large model and turning on Global Illumination would result in a much longer rendering time.
Note: You can always show your design in different ways within the same hyper-model by having several 3D models in one hyper-model. See more on this here.
