Graphisoft’s BIMx is an interactive, 3D model viewer app — please download to visualize or collaborate on architectural design projects on your mobile device(s).
Bridge the gap between the architectural design studio and the construction site with award-winning BIMx, the most popular visualization and coordination app for all architectural design project stakeholders.
BIMx offers professional visualization and game-like navigation to explore architectural design project – anywhere. BIMx features the ‘BIM Hyper-model’ – that helps non-design professionals easily explore the building model and understand the project deliverables.
BIMx connects the construction site with the architect’s office for streamlined collaboration. Real-time model cut-throughs, in-context measuring and project markups in the model context make BIMx your best on-site BIM companion. Drive the design narrative on the building site for fast, specific client feedback.

BIMx user reviews :
Very nice app, although it lacks much guidance on how to use the app with a VR viewer. eg – how to move around? Do I have to use a joystick? Wouldn’t it be better to have waypoints to click on? EDIT 1: Well, in the light of the answer and more exploration I’ve downgraded my review because it seems to me this could have been so much better than it is. No-one wants to wear Cardboard VR viewers, so a better way would have been to have integrated VR joystick functionality, or at least auto click on buttons (point, at the button, wait while the timer counts down, then autoclick). As things stand, you’re on a constant walk without the ability to stop (unless you use the Cardboard viewer) which is poor and unhelpful for clients. Pity, because it’s very close to being brilliant but by missing one function, it’s not very practical. Could do better guys. EDIT 2: Looks like it will work with a joystick, but it took a couple of hours playing around with the joystick settings to get it connected to the app. In short, you can walk, stop, reverse all using a handheld Bluetooth joystick, which is pretty much most of what you’d like to do. So this time, I’m UPGRADING my rating. It is brilliant.
- Hi Steve, Thank you for your review! Please check this article about the VR functions: helpcenter.graphisoft.com/knowledgebase/63392/ Also we are hiring product designers, you might be a perfect candidant: careers.graphisoft.com/job/product-designer/4187440002 Regards, Gyuri
A handy tool but could be so much better. An anotate feature would be useful in 2d drawing mode. The measure feature would be useful it it would ‘snap’ to features/lines in 2d mode. Would also be good to be able to share drawings with dimensions from the measurement tool on. Its a shame the bimx explorer user cant decide on the section views they can see rather than the architect.
I love this app it’s really good , but you really need to work on the navigation its very bad , try to look at some games like “crusiders of light ” or those fortnite games look-like in andriod . They did an amzing job using the wheel and the screen for moving . Also u need to add a way to flip the controls some people like to swipe left to look right and some other people like to swipe right to go right …kind like first person shooter games . Otherwise, i can’t wait what you gone do next with this app , it has so much potential. You just need to work on the navigation more Keep up the good work
App not working on pixel 5. I open the app and press the + button to load a file, it says importing file and then nothing happens. It used to work perfectly on my OnePlus 6T. But for some reason it does not work on pixel 5 Edit: I contacted support and they responded right away and fixed my issue. Excellent support. Changing my rating to 5 starts now
- Hello Yousef, Please contact us at bimx[at]graphisoft.com and we will figure out why you are not able to import models. Thanks. Gyuri
