About this plugin

The Datasmith Exporter plugin for Archicad features Direct Link functionality that enables you to synchronize your files into Twinmotion with a single click. You can also synchronize multiple files from Archicad into the same Twinmotion project, or even mix and match them with files from Revit, Rhino, or SketchUp Pro. 

Current limitations:
  • Materials and objects are not automatically substituted for Twinmotion materials and objects.
Note:
