Announced as part of a new strategic collaboration with Autodesk back in September, this new integration is the first step towards better-connected workflows that remove technical roadblocks and open up creative avenues.
With Twinmotion for Revit, Revit users can easily bring their designs to life and create high-quality visualizations in a fast, interactive creative process. Everything from photorealistic stills and animations to compelling immersive VR is possible.
Using real-time tools, you can explore more options in the same amount of time; better engage stakeholders by exploring designs and making tweaks on the fly; and create experiences that take people to a future they are invested in.
To start using Twinmotion for Revit, first you’ll need to download Twinmotion. Go to the Autodesk products and services page and sign in. Look for a tile labeled Twinmotion for Revit. Click Access on this tile and you’ll be taken to a page where you can download the software installer. Follow the steps and you’re in business.
You’ll see a new Twinmotion icon in the navigation bar. Hover over this and click Open in Twinmotion. This will launch Twinmotion for Revit and enable you to create a Direct Link between the two applications so you can export your model in a few clicks. You will also have the ability to open and update an existing project.
You won’t need an Epic ID to run Twinmotion for Revit and use the built-in assets, but you’ll need one to access everything that’s stored on the cloud like HDRI skies, as well as Quixel and Sketchfab assets. It’s also where we add all our newest assets—including posed humans, furniture, and props—with new packs released every month. It’s free to sign up, so why not?
The Twinmotion Cloud functionality that enables you to share Presentations and Panorama Sets to a web browser via a simple URL is not available for this initial release—but we’re planning to reimplement it in a future version for easier access and integration with Autodesk accounts.
And that’s it! You can start creating stunning real-time experiences based on your own architectural models today.
