Twinmotion features direct one-click synchronization with Archicad, Revit, SketchUp Pro, Rhino (including Grasshopper), RIKCAD, and Vectorworks, and the ability to import entire scenes from 3ds Max, form•Z, Navisworks, and SolidWorks in uDatasmith format. You can download the relevant plugins from this page (support for Vectorworks is built in).

You can also bring in data from virtually all 3D content creation programs, with support for importing FBX, SKP, C4D, OBJ, 3DS, DAE, DXF, EV, LW, LWB, LWM, LWO, LWS, LXP, PLY, STL, WRL, WRL97, VRML, and X file formats.
No, you don’t need to have Unreal Engine to use Twinmotion.
Datasmith is a collection of tools and plugins that bring entire pre-constructed scenes and complex assets created in a variety of industry-standard design applications into Twinmotion or Unreal Engine. See Getting Started using the Datasmith Workflows with Twinmotion for more details.
Direct Link is a workflow for users who want to easily send the information from their design or modeling software into Twinmotion. This enables users to quickly update their content with a one-click synchronization button. To get this working, you will need to have one of the compatible plugins installed, other than for Vectorworks, where this functionality is built in.
