Revit 2023.1 introduces Twinmotion for Revit

By Microsol Resources | BIM, Visualization

As you may have heard at Autodesk University in September 2022, Autodesk is 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.

Twinmotion is a real-time visualization tool that enables you to produce high-quality images, panoramas, standard or 360° VR videos and interactive presentations from design data. The changes you make in Twinmotion update in real-time.

Revit 2023.1 introduces Twinmotion for Revit, upgrades to MEP modeling tools, more analytical to physical model automation for structural analysis, and handy advancements for everyone, like the ability to edit revisions on multiple sheets, upgrades to the project browser and command functionality, and more!


The update installs Twinmotion for Revit and Datasmith Exporter for Revit, which allows you to open the current Revit model in Twinmotion with a single click. You can continue the design process and synchronize the changes in real-time.


A drop-down menu allows you to synchronize your changes via Direct Link Synchronize, or do a one-time  Export to Datasmith file. The export may be useful for scenarios where you prefer to import a file containing specific geometry into Twinmotion, or when you want to share a file with another design team.



Thinking about an upgrade? Recent releases of Revit are faster, user-friendlier, and chock-full of useful features. In Revit 2023 alone, the Revit Factory shipped:

  • New structural analysis workflows optimized for BIM
  • Electrical load analysis for early-stage systems design
  • Data Exchanges for better interoperability and collaboration
  • Cloud Parameter service for more consistent BIM standards
  • A raft of fine-tuned enhancements for your documentation tasks
  • A fresh look and feel and an easier-to-use Dynamo
  • A boatload of performance enhancements that improve loading times, graphic performance, and more


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.
