New from Autodesk and Epic Games

Fast, intuitive, immersive visualization with Twinmotion for Revit.

As you may have heard at Autodesk University in September, we are collaborating with Epic Games to include access to Twinmotion with all Revit subscriptions. Whether you subscribe to the AEC Collection or standalone Revit, use Flex pricing or have an education license, you now have at your fingertips the real-time visualization power of Twinmotion for Revit.

Launch Twinmotion for Revit directly from the Revit ribbon in Revit 2023.1. Immerse yourself in the intuitive creator environment, and turn your design data into photo-realistic stills, scenes, and scenarios. Paint a more complete picture of how your design is working, and better weigh options, reach decisions, and take clients and stakeholders through signature experiences that can add shine and sophistication to your practice — not to mention help you win more work.

From project stills and animations, to VR experiences: Autodesk and Epic Games are helping bring together tools that showcase your creativity, illuminate your insights, and help you better connect digital and physical worlds.

To learn how to access Twinmotion for Revit, read the companion post by our friends at Epic Games, which includes links to a support article and FAQ. Read it here.

Want to see it in action? You can register for the Autodesk webinar BIM Fundamentals: Architectural Visualization in Autodesk Revit, with experts from Autodesk and Epic Games on hand to take your questions. Learn how effective visualization can improve the quality of your designs and help you grow your business.

New from BIM Electric Corp

Advanced Electrical Design for Revit offers
a more complete BIM workflow for
electrical engineers.

For years, electrical engineers have asked for a more complete BIM workflow for low voltage power distribution design.

With the launch of Advanced Electrical Design for Revit, Schneider Electric and Autodesk have partnered to fill the gaps, offering essential tools for electrical design in Revit’s unified project environment.

Connected workspaces, including key line, riser, and single line workspaces, give practitioners access to essential tools of the trade, and Advanced Electrical Design for Revit expands on the scheduling, reporting, and analytic capabilities you already expect from Revit.

In the words of April Kain, Electrical Designer at Gresham Smith: “I am excited to be an early adopter of the advanced electrical software and [to] help shape this for future releases for my industry peers, while strengthening the relationship between Gresham Smith, Autodesk and Schneider Electric.”

To learn more about growing your electrical design business with BIM, visit the BIM Electric Corp website, a Schneider Electric subsidiary.   


Better ways to share data with the Cloud.

Beta programs now available.

At Autodesk University, we shared steps we are taking to create an AEC industry cloud called Forma, which will connect the many types of data you use to design and construct our world.

This year we launched new public beta programs to gather your feedback as we advance that vision. Join any of the betas now available to AEC Collection and Autodesk Construction Cloud subscribers, and help us create the tools and connections that can support the growth of your business, and the quality of your design practice.

Data Exchange Connector for Revit [Beta]

Create, update, and manage exchanges directly from Revit with the Revit connector. Share subsets of your rich model data with stakeholders and bring in geometry data from other apps, like Rhino.

Data Exchange Connector for McNeel Rhino [Beta] 

Keep conceptual design decisions in sync with detailed design development with the Rhino connector. Easily move and update geometry from Rhino to Revit and Inventor — or from Revit to Rhino.

Data Exchange Connector for Microsoft Power Automate [Beta]

Run automated cloud workflows that save you time by connecting specific subsets of your design data to an ecosystem of business and productivity apps.

Spacemaker “Send to Revit” Workflow [Beta]

‘Send to Revit” functionality in Spacemaker converts your Spacemaker proposal into a Revit model, including terrain, buildings, site setbacks, and buildable area. Learn more.
