As a consultancy company, we advise and educate clients about BIM applications (technology & management process). BIMx is a specific solution to ease a specific problem. When companies are using ARCHICAD, it is an easy-to-use and powerful visualization tool to allow designers to share their design as an interactive model. The ideal use seems to be publishing it for use on an iPad, as that where the main benefit lies.
  • (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
  • 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.
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.
