BIM Project Sharing Becomes Easier with BIMx Update
BUDAPEST, Feb. 24, 2015 – GRAPHISOFT, a leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) architectural software developer, has introduced a simplified and more flexible licensing scheme for its award-winning BIM presentation app, BIMx.
In response to customer feedback, the following fewer, more flexible licensing options are available in the Apple Appstore effective immediately:
BIMx – Recommended for clients, BIMx provides FREE of charge access to the 3D part of any building models in BIMx format. This license can be upgraded to a PRO license to gain access to the full scope of BIM projects published in BIMx format;
BIMx PRO – Recommended for architects, BIMx PRO provides access to the full scope of BIM projects, including both 2D and 3D content (Hyper-model). Gain access to any number of full BIMx projects on one particular device for US$49.99;
BIMx Model Sharing (in-app purchase option) – Recommended for architects, BIMx Model Sharing offers an option to grant access to individual BIMx Hyper-models (including 2D and 3D content) for an unlimited number of clients on any of their devices without a time limit for US$49.99.
“By simplifying the license options available and following naming standards in the Appstore, our users will better understand whether to choose the FREE version or the paid PRO version,” said Akos Pfemeter, Vice President, Marketing at GRAPHISOFT. “The best news is that even with paid licenses, the purchase decision boils down to the following, very simple decision: All models on 1 device OR 1 model on all devices — for the same $50,” he added.
BIMx is available in the App Store and on Google Play. Visit the BIMx product site or view this short video for further details. Sign up for our upcoming BIMx Webinar on March 10 for a live demonstration of BIMx and BIMx PRO.
