 Pix4Dbim is an accessible tool that uses flexible image processing options on desktop or cloud. In simple terms its a Building Information Modelling software. It has many features that will assist the task at hand as well as being able to prevent future errors in the building process. Its a perfect solution to the building industry that us at Sphere highly recommend to you.


You can use any camera, any image and even Pix4Dcapture flight planning app on your mobile or tablet for the capturing of drone field operations, flight review, and optimal data capture.
By being able to choose offline processing on Pix4D desktop, you have full control over data, without needing an internet connection. You can also choose online processing instead for fully automated, hardware free results on Pix4D cloud.
On desktop you can gain access to advanced editing features, quality control, and measurements. For the cloud, monitor projects over time, use the drawing overlay for construction, and automatic NDVI map for agriculture.
Now you can easily collaborate and annotate projects online to then share maps, models, and analytics with a simple URL.

 Here are some of the key features that you can find in the software:

  • Photorealistic 3D Models for Measurements
    The desktop software of Pix4Dbim creates 3D models, surface and volume measurements, contours and general visualisation. The original high-resolution images can be viewed for inspection purposes just by simply clicking on any point of the 3D model.

  • Cloud-Based Timeline
    All data that is collected will regularly be displayed on an easy-to-visualise timeline in the cloud which is perfect to see your sites progress from start to finish. The 2D and 3D data can be accessed from here, as well as annotated, measured and shared to make comparisons.


  • BIM Comparison for As-Built vs As-Design
    As-built orthophotos can be compared with as-desgin drawings just by importing them to the Pix4Dbim cloud. This will show construction errors early before it impacts later stages of the build. 
    Alternatively, schedule diagrams that are derived from he BIM application can be imported and compared to ensure the project is on track.


You can purchase the MONTHLYYEARLY or PERPETUAL software.
