You can save Building Information Models into BIMx format from Archicad. See here the description of how to publish BIMx Hyper-models.

You can publish BIMx Hyper-models with all Archicad license types but with EDU and TRIAL licenses there will be watermarks placed in the corners of 2D and content. You cannot save to BIMx format when running Archicad without a license (Demo mode).
