2D drawing overlay has been a great feature in Archicad, why not having this kind of feature in BimX? I think the next release should include this feature.

Thanks

Would you care to elaborate? Which feature do you mean exactly?
At the moment I tend to believe what you are asking is already included in BIMx PRO where you can see the 2D documentation of a project hyperlinked with its 3D model.
It is something else you are referring to?

Even the standard version of BIMx on mobile devices can do this now.
However the desktop version can not if this is what you are asking for.

Hi you misunderstood me. I'd like to ovelay 2d drawings on 2d drawings. say a layout with worksheet views with scanned drawings and a layout with 2d views generated from the model. There are many cases that 2d on 2d would be useful.

Best Regards

Ah, OK, so you would like to have Trace Reference functionality in BIMx?

You could start a wish to see how much support it gets.

Well can't this thread be moved to the wishes section? Or should I make a new one?

Actually, I thought about this a bit and I think it would be very useful and beneficial to have this feature in BIMx. On the construction site one could compared one floor plan to another, or a floor plan to a section. Currently these 2D docs can be overlaid on the 3D model, but not each other.
So I voted essential.
