Nwd Viewer Free Download Mac

Hyper-models created with GRAPHISOFT Archicad can be shared with anyone who has either a mobile or desktop version of BIMx app. The BIMx Desktop Viewer is a native Mac/Win application that allows you to navigate in the virtual architectural project (saved in bimx file format) on desktop computers and notebooks.

Installation

Download the BIMx Desktop Viewer.

Are all of these available for free? The model viewer page is only for viewers that are free to use and not paid for. As far as I am aware both Trimble Connect and SketchUp need to be paid for. Plus Sketchup is extremely poor when it comes to supporting IFC so we wouldn’t add this to the list. TeamViewer for Mac. Establish incoming and outgoing remote desktop and computer-to-computer connections for real-time support or access to files, networks and programs. Collaborate online, participate in meetings, chat with other people or groups, and make video calls in one-click.

Note: The BIMx Desktop Viewer application is included in the Archicad package. In case you don’t have Archicad installed on your computer, or you would like to update your BIMx Desktop Viewer to the latest version, please use the following installers.
The installer can be used for any language versions.
