Powered by Epic Games's Unreal Engine technology, Twinmotion allows BricsCAD users to transform their BIM and CAD models into richly detailed, captivating environments as high-quality images, panoramas, and standard or 360-degree videos. The connection keeps BricsCAD and Twinmotion models synchronized, enabling users to edit their models and make design decisions on-the-fly.

Using our Datasmith SDK, Bricsys developers now have the ability to send their data seamlessly to Twinmotion and other Unreal Engine-based applications, offering users new levels of creative freedom. Being able to translate data from a design application to Twinmotion or Unreal Engine in a rich and structured way accelerates the design review process by an order of magnitude. -- Pierre-Felix Breton, Senior Technical Product Designer, AEC, at Epic Games

The ability to synchronize data with Twinmotion and other Unreal-powered applications will help users transform their BIM and CAD models into real-time experiences and better visualize the project's phases.

I have followed the architectural visualization industry for at least 7 years and the truth is that it has never been easier to deliver something of quality in record time. The combination of modeling in BricsCAD and rendering in Twinmotion allowed me to finish 3 days earlier than the average time spent in a typical residential property. -- Melissa Rivera, BIM Product Specialist at Bricsys
