GRAPHISOFT Updates BIMx App to Take Full Advantage of iPad's Retina Display

Words: Bronzella Cleveland

GRAPHISOFT, a leader in Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions for architects, has announced an update for its BIMx application. The BIMx 1.2.455 update for iPhone/iPad app provides native support for the iPad 3 Retina display.

The new iPad’s Retina Display offers stunning graphics and a new level of mobility to professional, high-end visualization. At the same time, the quadrupled pixel count makes the application of interactive 3D apps, such as BIMx, a difficult task. GRAPHISOFT was the first in the AEC space to combine performance with high-quality, 3D navigational capabilities. "It is worth noting that architects operate with true, detailed BIM models and not only simple, image-mapped surfaces," said Gabor Horvath, director of mobile developments at GRAPHISOFT. "Our biggest challenge – and competitive edge – is the way we approach a great user experience through uncompromised performance in all our applications."

With BIMx and GRAPHISOFT’s ArchiCAD, architects and designers can explore their project designs in a 3D environment that supports real-time 3D navigation identical to mainstream computer games. The Retina Display-compatible BIMx is available new and as an update (1.2.455) in the App Store and is free of charge.
