BUDAPEST, November 27, 2013 – GRAPHISOFT, the leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) software developer for architects, is proud to announce that BIMx has won the prestigious Mobile Technology of the Year award at the eighth annual Construction Computing Magazine Awards in the United Kingdom. This is the second year in a row that BIMx has been honored by readers and users with this award.
Affectionately known as ‘The Hammers’, the Construction Computing Awards showcase and reward the technology, tools and solutions for the effective design, construction, maintenance, and modification of commercial buildings, residential and social housing and civil engineering projects of all sizes. Over 200 industry guests gathered recently in London to see the outcome of the readers' on-line voting and judging panel's deliberations. “It's always great to receive awards but these, coming from users' and readers' votes, show how strongly ArchiCAD and BIMx are valued,” said Akos Pfemeter, Vice President of Marketing, GRAPHISOFT.
BIMx – the ultimate BIM project presenter app - is the greatly enhanced sequel to the original BIMx, the 2012 and 2013 Mobile Product of the Year at the Construction Computing Awards. It features the “BIMx Hyper-model”, a unique technology for integrated 2D and 3D building project navigation. BIMx Hyper-models offer extremely smooth handling and outstanding performance even for projects with complex 3D building models and extensive 2D documentation. Architects using ArchiCAD will find that BIMx is the perfect tool to present and/or share designs with clients and contractors. In addition to making the whole workflow virtually hassle-free, BIMx saves money and the misery that comes with printing plans. Users can unlock the BIMx Docs functionality for one project for less than the price of printing five standard documentation sheets and for unlimited number of projects for less than the printing cost of one complete documentation set.
