Archicad does not appear in twinmotion after importing it

Hi, does anyone know how to solve this problem?

 

I tried importing the Archicad file into twinmotion via datasmith file and also directly synchronizing with direct link, but the model does not appear after importing it. There is a layer of the file that appears with the materials, but no matter how much i zoom in or try to scale it up, nothing is there. I also tried importing it with different export settings in Archicad, but nothing seems to work... I also tried saving it as Wavefront file and when I look at the file on my desktop, you can see the structure, but once I import it, again, there is nothing there. I have never had this problem before and I am going crazy, trying to figure what I am doing wrong.

 

If someone knows how to solve this, please help me.

 

Im attaching screenshots of twinmotion after importing it, a Wavefront file on my desktop and an Archicad screenshot.

As the Archicad -Twinmotion Connection is developed by Epic Games, it may be more productive to raise this issue on their forum, you will probably get help on this issue sooner:

I think it might just be that it is not in the default Twinmotion viewing area.

I am sure there is a way to do something like a zoom to model, but I don't use it enough to remember the exact command.

Okay, thank you! I will write there, maybe they will understand the issue better. 😊 

 

But I think it has something to do with visibility in Archicad... I merged 2 files in Archicad and the one I am trying to import in twinmotion (the screenshot one)  is also invisible in Archicad 3d perspective of the merged Archicad files, even though, in plan there are walls, slabs... ( and all the layers are turned on.)

 

Do you maybe know what I am doing wrong in Archicad that it is also invisible in 3d?

There are many things that can cause elements to be not visible in 3D, check this thread:
