The Datasmith Exporter plugin for SOLIDWORKS features Direct Link functionality that enables you to synchronize your files into Twinmotion with a single click. You can also synchronize multiple files from SOLIDWORKS into the same Twinmotion project, or even mix and match them with files from other design applications that offer Datasmith support.
  • Datasmith Exporter plugins are also used for Unreal Engine; if you have already installed the latest plugin from the Unreal Engine page, there's no need to reinstall for Twinmotion.

How to install

Before you install:
  • Make sure you have the latest version of Twinmotion installed; you can check this by opening the Epic Games launcher and going to the Twinmotion tab.
  • Close SOLIDWORKS if it is open.
  • Uninstall any previously installed Datasmith Exporter plugins for SOLIDWORKS
  • Once the download completes, run the installer file and follow the instructions, including reading and agreeing to the end-user license agreement (EULA).
  • You can now open SOLIDWORKS and start using the plugin to export your scenes in uDatasmith format, and bring them into Twinmotion.
