As an ARCHICAD user, this is almost a no-brainer. BIMx is included (although there are some paying options) and works well out-of-the-box. There is little to setup from the ARCHICAD side. You prepare a set of layouts/views and can publish the model on Ine go. The free version focuses on the 3D-model viewer. You publish an interactive model and can walk through it. With the PRO version, you also can publish the "Hyper-Model" - an integration of 2D and 3D views. If you are looking at tuning your own interactivity, e.g. in precisely defining what can happen and what information to show, you cannot customize BIMx that way. You have to look at alternatives, such as game engines or other 3D visualization software.

CMiC Project Management is a web-based database for project management. My team used it for tracking RFIs, submittal package approvals, safety issues in the field, and mainly billings. My project team was the first team at our company to formally use CMiC Project Management for 100% of the owner billings, instead of partially outside the system (excel) as previously project teams used. My lead PM ran into a lot of issues and glitches with this aspect of CMiC Project Management.

Pros

Graphisoft

  • (Almost) one-click export from ARCHICAD model to interactive app
  • Flexible navigation - walk, fly, orbit... with good touch gestures on mobile app
  • Rich view - especially with the interactive linking of 3D model and 2D drawings
  • Decent graphical quality - especially with the GI pre-calculated

  • The user interface is similar to that of other project management software applications so folks in our company that had previously used other applications have been able to switch over fairly easily.
  • I really like the software and it was much less expensive than other applications.
  • I like the mobile application so that our superintendents can view the documentation on their phones.
  • I really like the punch list capability mobile field, however, we have a hard time getting our superintendents to use it for some reason.

Cons

Graphisoft

  • It is an out-of-the-box solution for end-users. There is almost no customization possible (e.g. API for developers)
  • Pricing is a bit confusing with two options for in-app purchase (PRO and Share a Model) and the separate Desktop Viewer
  • Android version takes a long time to get updated to iOS version
  • Only for ARCHICAD users. No other software is supported.

  • Entering a code of the vendor instead of the company name while recording an invoice takes time and seems counter intuitive
  • Editing an invoice created through Image Management on the AP side is limited to description and address field. When changing the rest (invoice# or a date or an amount) - the whole trace of who entered/submitted/approved disappears. The way it works now is: deleting an invoice from the batch, locating it through Registry/invoice search, unsubmitting it, making changes, submitting, adding back to batch - time consuming
  • In Multiple distribution pop up window, when entering a new invoice, I'd make the field "Company" to be autofilled once "Job" is entered. It takes time to memorize what job number belongs to what company.
  • There is only web version available and it is limited compare to a desktop client. For instance I can only make one change at a time and save it. Multiple changes don't get saved in one click

      Most people using it are thrilled about it. But our use of ARCHICAD in projects is (alas) a bit limited, especially compared with the attention for Revit with our clients. And as an ARCHICAD teacher, I have to remember to keep introducing it as it is accepted well with most users.

      This is a platform that would continue to be in the best interest for our company. I just hope that CMiC support removes the gaps between the enhancements that they create to better the system to what they currently have

      It is a very easy to use system. When you remove all the additional fluff that other cloud based companies use, and simplify the user's experience, the platform works exceptionally well

      Lots of confusion between sales and implementation regarding what was included and not included...the security encountered a "bug" and made it extremely difficult to set up roles and individual responsibilities

      Alternatives Considered

      Graphisoft

      Direct publishing to a 3D model can be done with a few other tools, but if (and only if) you are using ARCHICAD, it is the easiest to use. For Revit users, there is more choice, including Revit Live or some online model-viewers and publishers. For full custom interactivity, you have to look at e.g. Unity3D or Unreal where you can include and extend endlessly, but you will lack the ease of BIMx. You'd also have to look for good similar navigation. Especially the link between 2D views and 3D model sections is hard to beat. But in that context, if you want to e.g. allow users to choose design alternatives, select another material or include animations and sound, this is not possible in BIMx.

      CMiC Construction Platform is the best price point in the market. Others are revenue-based billings, and the annual fees reflect as such. CMiC Construction Platform support staff is generally amazing and offers real-time support on critical issues. The imaging and workflow functions are real-time savers. CMiC Construction Platform is generally a smaller and in touch organization that treats your team like their own and stays with you after the purchase.

      Return on Investment

      Graphisoft

      • As our business is consultancy, it is mainly the benefit of our clients using BIMx. They are consistently thrilled about it.
      • Its main success is ease of sharing models with clients, contractors but usually in one direction > viewing the model from the designer
      • As the software has had numerous changes throughout the years, including feature removal for the Desktop version, it sometimes difficult to understand what the current feature set actually is.
      • I would look at BIMx as an easy-to-use solution. As long as its feature set appeal, it is simple to integrate. But there is no customization.
      • Graphisoft has stated numerous times that they see BIMx evolving in the future as a more broad document and model sharing and collaboration tool. Only some of that is currently implemented.

      • Better project visibility, surely. I can step into a former project and see how well/poorly it was run.
      • Forecasting underway - nearly complete with year 2.
      • Cost status tracking - this has been valuable, especially when figuring out how much of a liquid budget is left over.
