GRAPHISOFT extend mobile BIM: BIMx now on Kindle Fire

Date: Tuesday, November 13, 2012

Mobile BIM exploration has been extended by GRAPHISOFT, with the release of BIMx on the Amazon AppStore for use on Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire Gen 2. GRAPHISOFT BIMx, the cutting-edge communication and presentation tool for BIM projects, is now available through the Amazon AppStorefor customers located in the United States, France, Italy, Germany, Spain, and United Kingdom. BIMx is an interactive environment that allows users to explore full BIM models without holding a license of the professional authoring software in which the building model was originally created.  With BIMx, ArchiCAD users have been able to publish self-running BIMx models for their clients to run on desktop computers (Win/Mac); on iOS and Android devices, BIMx puts BIM into the hands of all stakeholders not actively involved in the actual creation of the BIM model such as contractors, builders, clients, owners, and principals of design practices as well. BIMx Community on Facebook The integrated BIMx community on Facebook is the central hub for sharing interactive 3D building models. Architects holding a BIMx license – either commercial or educational license – can publish their models directly to this online community. In addition, ArchiCAD users holding a full commercial BIMx license and an active Software Services Agreement can benefit from a cloud service exclusively provided by GRAPHISOFT for private model transfer.
