Download hypermodel TO iphone

Tom Krowka
Any wany to download hyper model from a private folder directly to the Iphone BIMx app without going through I tunes?

Am trying to download as a newbie Client would....without many steps, sign in, logins, etc etc. and am in need of a simple way to do it. Because I will have to provide step by step instructions to the contractor and client.

Have looked at ArchiWiki....seems like the only recommended way is via Itunes on the desktop to the I phone....which seems convoluted.

I usually get it to them thru Dropbox. Send them a link to the BIMx file by email they click on it, this opens dropbox, they click download and when DB says it cannot open the file then click send to and choose BIMx app.

Sounds reasonable. I thought there might be a way to download from the server directly from the BIMx app and bypass the intermediate steps.

If you upload your Hyper-model to the Graphisoft cloud server then you will get an e-mail with a link to that file.
So long as you client can get that e-mail on their iPhone then if they click that link then the file will download directly to their phone and open in the BIMx viewer (for which of course they must install the app).

Like many of the suggestions here, use a cloud service. I use Box which has apps for iOS, windows and android.

If I want to open it myself I just open it via the Box app, if I want clients to open it I email them a direct link from the Box app which means they access your cloud server (but are restricted only to the file you grant access for)

They just need to open the email on their email client on the iPad and click the link and it adds it to the BIMx directory and can be viewed offline

Didn't find the answer?
