Hi jnr. 

What Twinmotion version are you using? There was a recent release to TM 2022.1

Also are you running direct link in Mac or Windows OS?

Sometimes the problem is the camera position, in TM click the arrow in the upper right, and see if the objects are there, in that case right click any object and select "zoom to selection"

On an iMac Pro 2017, 11.6.1 . Direct link worked in previous Service pack just fine. It's not exporting any data as far as I can tell. Not twinmotion's fault. If I export as a datasmith file (not linked), all comes in as advertised.

In this case what Twinmotion version you are using matters. We coordinate with the engineers from Unreal to enable features in both Vectorworks and Twinmotion.

the new features that we added to SP2 are not working with previous TM version


I open your model with VW 2022 SP2, and the model is synchronizing correctly with Twinmotion 2021.2

Upgrading to TM 2021 should fix the missing geometries issue. Please Let me know if you are still having problems after that
