Twinmotion Datasmith Exporter not working for Archicad 26 Apple Silicon

Well... basically what I said the subject.

Twinmotion Datasmith Exporter not working for Archicad 26 Apple Silicon

Probably not expecting an updated add-on for a few months. And to add insult to injury, I only found out "after" I uninstalled the MacTel version.

Anyone else experiencing this with the Apple Silicon to Twinmotion export? ...or did I do something wrong?

Add-ons need to be compiled for each operating system - Windows & Mac (Intel).

Now there is a third Mac (Apple Silicon) that needs to be compiled as well.

So Epic/Twinmotion will need to compile a new add-on.

This needs to be addressed to EPIC/Twinmotion support since they provide the Addon.

is it possible to run both versions until this is sorted?

I had both versions running alongside each other with no issues. They should now be the same build too which will make it even better.

It is also advised that the switch to the AC 26 ARM version needs to be carefully evaluated if you rely on 3rd party Addons. These are NOT yet ARM compiled and, therefore, not working from within AC ARM.

I reported it here as a heads up to users who have Twinmotion as part of their critical workflow to evaluate their method of switching to the ARM version of Archicad.

I simply reinstalled the MacTel version and will use that. To keep things clean I uninstalled the ARM version since I saw no need to have both running on my machine, since the MacTel version ran fine enough on my M1 Max chipset.

And, I'm reporting this to Epic/Twinmotion support. I am aware that this is the course to follow which is why I did "not" report it to GS tech support and only mentioned it here in the forum.

Which I have done. I only posted here on the community, not the GS tech support, for a heads up for other Apple Silicon. users.

Yes it is. I just reinstalled the MacTel version. I chose to delete/uninstall the ARM version for now. No need for me to have both running.

Yeah, I just decided to stick with MacTel version only for now until a new add-on is compiled. I may go back, not sure... but the intel version runs fine on my M1 Max laptop.
