Location of BIMx Settings

Click the three dots icon shown in the top-right corner of the screen while you have a model open in BIMx. In the drop-down menu select the "Settings" button to reach all of the BIMx settings. Change any of them, then return to the model.


Available Settings


Markers & Hyperlinks

You can navigate between the 2D Layouts and 3D models using the blue hyperlink markers in both views. You can hide these blue markers by turning this switch off.



Turn this switch on to display the 3D bodies of zones in the model. When the Zones are turned on, you can see their name and additional info when you walk inside them.


You can switch between various shading options to see the your model with different textures and rendering styles. Your options are the following:

  Textures Edges Shading Background
Realistic Realistic Textures Hidden Edges Ambient Occlusion HDRi Sky
Hidden Line White Visible No shading HDRi Sky
Simple Shading Realistic Textures Visible Simplified Shading HDRi Sky
Monochrome Metallic grey Visible Ambient Occlusion HDRi Sky
Black and White White Hidden Edges Ambient Occlusion HDRi Sky (greyscale)
Camera View Cone

Use this slider to control the View Cone of the camera. This essentially controls the angle of corners in Perspective distortion.


Use this setting to pick what units you want the measurements to be displayed with, when you use the Smart Measure Tool.


The joystick in walk mode is in the bottom right corner of the 3D window by default. You can turn on the "Left-handed" option to move it to the left instead.

Eye Height in Walk Mode

Use this slider to adjust the camera height in walk mode from 1,00m to 1,99m (from 3,28ft to 6,53ft).
