About this plugin

The Datasmith Exporter plugin for SOLIDWORKS enables you to import entire scenes from SOLIDWORKS into Twinmotion, retaining hierarchy and organization.

  • This plugin is currently Experimental, and should not be relied upon in production.
  • 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

  • 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.
