OK, I don't usually use an IPad or mobile device, mostly laptops, but we've set up a project for the clients with several different scheme's showing various shading elements to look at on their Ipad. They are not computer savvy so I have uploaded the BIMx files for them onto there Ipad but I can't see anywhere that the shadows are showing or can be turned on. I just uploaded BIMx onto my android and see there is no option to turn the shadows on. Really?

From memory only the desktop BIMx app can display shadows.

Presumably you have seen the following helpdesk article regarding shadows > ... d-shadows/ ...i.e. it is controlled from within the app itself.

Yep I saw the article, but no obvious information on the App re shadows.
Graphisoft got back to me. Apparently it is already on the wishlist. Pity it took me a few hours trolling around and I still couldn't find it listed as a limitation on the app. I understand the issue re computer power etc to calculate the shadows in real time like the desktop version. Maybe give you the ability to save out 3 shadows schemes (so either shadows off, 9 am, midday and 3 pm..?)
