Export Unreal Datasmith

Question

In trying out the new Export Unreal Datasmith many of the objects in my model are not present in Twinmotion.  Has anyone else tried this?  Is there a limit to the amount of objects that can be exported?

Hello The Hamma:

 

There is no limit, can you share the file with me please?

When you import, there are Import Options for "Keep hierarchy" and for "Collapse by material".  If you imported with Combine by Material then try Keep Hierarchy.

I've installed SP3 and I am not seeing Unreal Datasmith as an option under Export. I've restarted VW but no luck.

If you are using a Custom Workspace you will need to edit it.

 

Or for a quick trial, just switch to one of the default workspaces.

Yes this is a new menu item and you will need to add it to any custom workspaces.  The default workspaces already have this item in the file export menu.

@KrisM For what it's worth - I tried using the 'check for update' menu item and then the updater appeared to update my version, but in fact did not.  It didn't ask me to close the software as a part of the update process - which was a red flag for me.

 

I then restarted the software and went through the process again.  The second time, it asked me to close the software, displayed my serial number and took considerably longer - all good signs (except maybe that last part).

 

That did the trick and now it works fine.

For me it was a workspace issue. I put the new menu command into my workspace and now all is well.

Somewhat off topic:  are there any other new items in the Workspace Editor?

I work in the Architect Workspace and it doesn't show the option to Export to Unreal Datasmith. It does show up in the Architect-BIM and Fundamentals workspaces, though. How can I get this to show up in the Architect workspace? Or do I have to go into a different workspace when I want to export a file?

You have to edit the Architect Workspace that you are using.  The new command can be found in the import/export options on the left side of the editor.  Move it to the right side of the editor.
