I recently installed the Datasmith Plugin from the Unreal Engine Webpage, as directed at the Graphisoft website, for Archicad 24 & 25. According to the procedure there should be a Datasmith Palette under the Windows > Palettes . However, for some reason there isn't. I even checked in Add-On Manager, there it shows an entry of Datasmith installed correctly but with a message that, "The file is an outdated Add-On that cannot be used with this Archicad version."
Surprisingly, My Archicad 24 & 25 are up to date, so is my Twinmotion and Datasmith Plugin. If anyone knows how this issue can be resolved please guide me towards it. I have attached a screenshot for reference..
Thanks a lot for the response. Interestingly, I saw a video on YouTube uploaded by Twinmotion (link attached below) that shows how the datasmith palette is supposed to work. However I suppose I might have to wait for another plugin update.
I really appreciate your response. I also suspect the same thing but for me what's confusing me is the fact that when I install the plugin it gets installed for Archicad 24 that I also own but the plugin doesn't seem to work for 24 even.
Anyways many thanks for your reply. Please do let me know if I could be of any assistance to you.
Unfortunately, the addon is developed entirely by Epic Games. We tested the addon here and did not encounter any similar problems. If reinstallation doesn't help, I suggest reaching out directly to Twinmotion support for further investigation.
Thank you very much for your understanding, and I am very sorry for the inconvenience!
Yes, I have dropped a report as directed by the Twinmotion support system but have not received anything from their side as yet. I believe if this issue does not gets sorted out soon I might have to either switch to Revit or vectorworks and try datasmith there or maybe switch to Lumion.
Anyhow, thanks a lot for the assistance. Take Care !
