The release of the next-generation BIMx brought many changes, so you might want to transfer your Hyper-models between BIMx Android applications.

If you have your Hyper-models already stored either in cloud storage (such as BIMx Model Transfer site, Google Drive, Dropbox, iCloud, etc.) or have them saved on your desktop computer, you don't have to go through any of the two migration methods described below.

If you are interested in how to upload your Hyper-models to the BIMx Model Transfer site please read this article: Upload Hyper-Model Directly to BIMx Model Transfer Site.

1. Use the File Explorer on Windows:

- Connect your mobile device to a computer via an USB cable
- Select your device and open its storage
- Search for the BIMx applications's folder, for instance the Hyper-models can be found on this path in case of BIMxLab: Android/data/com.graphisoft.bimxlab/files/documents
- Select all the content of your previous BIMx application's folder
- Drag and Drop to the desired location on your computer (see the image below)
- After all the files have been copied to the computer, your previous BIMx application can be deleted from the device
- Drag and Drop all your Hyper-models from the computer to your new BIMx application folder on your mobile device, for instance: Android/data/com.graphisoft.bimx/files/documents

2. Use Finder on macOS:

To complete the steps on a MacOS device an Android File Transfer application is required, which is available from here.

- Connect your mobile device to a computer via an USB cable
- Double click Android File Transfer
- Search for the BIMx applications's folder, for instance the Hyper-models can be found on this path in case of BIMxLab: Android/data/com.graphisoft.bimxlab/files/documents
- Select all the content of your previous BIMx application's folder
- Drag and Drop to the desired location on your computer (see the image below)
- After all the files have been copied to the computer, your previous BIMx application can be deleted from the device
- Drag and Drop all your Hyper-models from the computer to your new BIMx application folder on your mobile device, for instance: Android/data/com.graphisoft.bimx/files/documents

We recommend keeping only the latest BIMx app installed on the mobile device.
