Unity + Autodesk: Enabling the flow of BIM data


For the public sector, communicating the value of AEC projects, driving consensus, and achieving stakeholder buy-in – whether from the public, legislators, or other authorities – is essential. And, in the past, this has frequently taken the form of sharing static 2D blueprints or conceptual design images in PowerPoint. However, new innovations in virtual reality (VR) are making it easier for AEC developers to assemble visualizations such as interactive office walk-throughs and lifelike augmented reality (AR) models of actual building sites – at any stage of the project.

These new developments are the result of a teaming initiative between Autodesk and Unity, the creator of the world’s most widely used real-time 3D development platform. Announced at Autodesk University 2018 in Las Vegas, the collaboration marks the next phase of a strategic collaboration between the two companies (first announced in 2017) to ensure full data interoperability between many Autodesk products and Unity, including Revit and 3ds Max.
