Introduction

The renewed BIMx Web Viewer (Help) allows clients and other project stakeholders to view BIMx Hyper-models directly in their browsers, enjoying various intuitive, game-like navigation options.

This viewer lets you access the full content of any uploaded BIMx Hyper-model without having to install any application, browser plug-in or download the model itself locally. You can start navigating right in your browser window.

Please check our BIMx Web Viewer Help to get familiar with all the possibilities it offers.

You can activate it by pressing the Play symbol in the middle of the Hyper-model preview image.

NOTE: Only Hyper-models can be viewed in BIMx Web Viewer. The obsolete 3D only models are not compatible with it. See more on the differences here under the "Basics" tab: What is the difference between a legacy BIMx 3D model and a Hyper-model?
