BIMx by GRAPHISOFT is First 3D AEC App to Fully Utilize the New iPad’s Retina Display
BUDAPEST, May 23, 2012 -- GRAPHISOFT, the global 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, resulting in crisper images and stunning virtual reality.
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 like 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 uncompromized 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.
