How Twinmotion 2018 is synchronized with Revit

This Revit video provides brief demonstration on Twinmotion 2018 that will launched very soon by Abvent. The newest version will be very useful for architectural visualization via 3D immersion with some simple clicks of the mouse.

Twinmotion 2018 is supported with Unreal Engine. It is very user-friendly and powerful for architects and designers to generate images, videos, panoramas and executable files.

Twinmotion 2018 offers real-time collaboration with ArchiCAD and Autodesk Revit. Given below, some exclusive features of the software :-

It produces photorealistic visualisations of buildings as well as imports models in a standard range of 3D file formats, together with FBX, DWG and DAE.

The Users will be able to develop background environments out of a library of stock models and textures, and attribute lights.

There are various types of atmospheric properties which range from clouds, rain and snow, as well as ambient lighting on the basis of geographical location and time of day. These are modified through slider-based controls.

 There also exist brush-based systems for editing topography or inserting animatiable vegetation to a scene, and a Bezier-based system for pathing animated crowds or traffic.

The software also comprises of a basic camera editor and a set of standard post-process effects.

3D Repo Has Launched New Version Of Its Cloud Software To Provide Support For Autodesk Navisworks And BIM Collaboration Format (BCF)

3D Repo has introduced the latest version of its cloud software that provides extra support for some of the globally recognized software packages suitable for the Engineering, Infrastructure and Construction industries, like Autodesk Navisworks. The new introduction of the cloud based BIM collaboration platform also offers improved support for large 3D models appropriate for infrastructure projects, along with integrated VR functionality to be used for training, safety and project consultation.

The support for native file formats and software platforms will facilitate the users to distribute 3D models, issues and finally the knowledge with the broader project team, in the cloud, within the framework of original model.

The newest versions of 3D Repo’s Open Source, Starter, Professional and Enterprise packages comprise of advanced incorporation with Autodesk Navisworks project review software. With the help of a custom plug-in, data can be uploaded directly to the 3D Repo knowledge base devoid of requiring tiresome process for exchanging files. It performs by decomposing and pushing the native Navisworks project directly into the 3D Repo platform online, rather than preserving it in files like traditional collaboration tools. Therefore, the users will be able to view models and collaborate with the broad project team via their web browser, even on very enormous and complicated projects. The users can access this plug-in on the Autodesk App Store at free of cost: https://apps.autodesk.com/NAVIS/en/Detail/Index?id=5149387925117816371

3D Repo has also asserted support for the BCF file format, facilitating import/export of collaboration and mark up data for issues tracking to software like Solibri quality assurance solutions, Trimble’s Tekla product family and 3D architectural BIM software ARCHICAD.

Demo Of Design View Enhancements In AutoCAD 2018

This AutoCAD tutorial video demonstrates the design view enhancements feature in AutoCAD 2018.

Share Design Views function has been restructured in AutoCAD 2018 to provide support to the new DWG file format, and the A360 viewer provides more adaptability as compared to previous versions.

The AutoCAD users can now simply publish views of drawings to the cloud to allow collaboration among stakeholders and at the same time safeguard your DWG files.

The design view tool can be availed from the publish fly out on the application menu or from the A360 ribbon tab by applying the ONLINEDESIGNSHARE command.

The design views are located online through a link that can be allotted with collaborators. Now, It is possible to get your recent uploads from the A360 viewer home page.

By default, uploads are only available for 30 days. But the new version facilitates the users to spread a design view for an extra 30 days at any time, along with an unrestrained number of extensions.

Besides, allocating your design views, it is now possible to post, review, and resolve comments.
