ORLEANS, Sept. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, at
Autodesk University, Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) announced a
strategic collaboration with Epic Games to accelerate immersive
real-time (RT) experiences across industries, with an initial focus
on Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC).
Autodesk customers face pressing challenges to deliver project
outcomes at a faster pace, at lowered costs, and with labor
shortages, which require more open, connected workflows, and
third-party integrations that simply work together. This joint
effort with Epic Games aims to make immersive RT environments
easily accessible to designers, engineers, and construction
professionals, so they can deliver more innovative projects in less
As part of Autodesk's ongoing goal of connecting the physical
and digital worlds, the first integrated offering will be Epic
Games' Twinmotion for Autodesk Revit, delivering real-time
rendering and storytelling. As Revit is used to design,
document, and deliver building and infrastructure projects,
Twinmotion complements the process by creating real-time
visualizations for a fast, interactive design process.
Autodesk intends to make Twinmotion for Revit available to all
Revit customers as part of an upcoming release.
"We know our customers are looking for more visualization and
collaboration experiences through extended reality," said Autodesk
EVP of AEC Design, Amy Bunszel.
"Together with Epic Games, we will expand on what's possible. In
immersive environments, designers can communicate to their project
teams and clients with unparalleled realism how projects will look
and feel upon completion for better decision-making and
Epic and Autodesk have been teaming up since 2008 when Autodesk
joined Epic Games' Integrated Partners Program, enabling
integration of Autodesk 3D design software with Epic's Unreal
Engine. In 2021, Epic and Autodesk collaborated to offer a new
Unreal Live Link for Maya plugin, allowing Media &
Entertainment (M&E) creators to stream data from Maya
to Unreal in real time.
"The integration between Autodesk Revit and Twinmotion promises
to deliver a truly seamless, real-time 3D experience for design
professionals," said Marc Petit,
Epic Games' Vice President, Unreal Engine Ecosystem. "We share a
common goal with Autodesk, giving customers more time to be
innovative. By tapping into Epic's ecosystem of real-time 3D
tools and libraries, users can spend more time bringing their
designs to life and less time handling complex data
and technical workflows."
Looking ahead, the companies aim to develop experiences for
customers beyond AEC, including M&E and manufacturing, bringing
forth the value of real-time content creation. As members of the
Metaverse Standards Forum, Autodesk and Epic Games are also driving
open standards that enhance portability and integration, equip
customers with immersive and collaborative technology, and deliver
real value for customers.
