by Brianna Crandall — June 8, 2020 — Committed to providing best-in-class products and services to architects, engineers, and designers, IMAGINiT Technologies just announced that it has become Epic Games’ first partner to offer the popular Twinmotion technology in the United States and Canada. Twinmotion’s three-dimensional (3D) visualization software allows architecture, construction, urban planning, landscaping and other building professionals to share designs that have been created using many of today’s design tools.
Marc Petit, general manager, Unreal Engine at Epic Games, stated:
To build a strong foundation for our North American channel, we searched for an AEC industry leader with unrivaled market penetration within the design community. IMAGINiT has a long history of putting the customer first, and a team that always looks for ways to inject innovation that helps their customers thrive. We’re confident that IMAGINiT is the perfect partner to help show the AEC industry how Twinmotion can disrupt the visualization game in North America.
With Twinmotion, IMAGINiT now offers AEC professionals the ability to instantly transform any building information modeling (BIM) or computer-aided design (CAD) model into a vivid experience. With photo-realistic images, panoramas, and standard or 360° virtual reality (VR) videos, Twinmotion provides an immersive experience for clients. The software offers compatibility and one-click synchronization with most CAD and BIM architectural design packages.
Bill Zavadil, chief operating officer, IMAGINiT Technologies, remarked:
We’re proud to have earned the trust of a global 3D visualization giant, and are excited about bringing this transformative technology to help our AEC customers convert their designs into compelling real-time experiences. Twinmotion’s technology creates a new standard for firms by enabling the ability to rapidly create a polished vision, catch costly design errors early, and virtually communicate the design intent to stakeholders.
Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, which is internationally acclaimed for its gaming visualizations, is the power behind Twinmotion.
Twinmotion’s benefits include:
- The ability to communicate design intention throughout a project
- Reducing rendering time and effort allowing staff to focus on higher-value tasks
- An intuitive user interface that doesn’t require visualization expertise
- Leveraging Epic Game’s Unreal Engine to produce photo-realistic renderings and interactive, immersive VR experiences such as scenes with ambient sounds, photo-scanned human characters with motion-captured animation, animal characters, and even high-resolution plants that move with the wind
Architects, designers and all building professionals can immediately start enjoying the benefits of Twinmotion by purchasing through IMAGINiT. Epic Games and IMAGINiT are offering Twinmotion at 50% off the perpetual license cost and free upgrades to future releases until December 31, 2021.
