Read on to learn how to import BIM models from 3D Repo into Unity. 3D Repo supports all popular file formats including IFC, RVT, DGN, BCF, FBX, and OBJ. We also support these file formats via our Navisworks Plugin: DWG, DXF, DWFX, RVT, SKP, 3DS, DGN, IFC, NWC/NWD, PRT, SLDASM, and SLDPRT.
3D Repo highly-optimises the BIM models for real-time rendering by default and without losing any geometrical accuracy.
Before starting, make sure you download our ‘SampleUnityProject’ file from the 3D Repo website. The SampleUnityProject contains everything you need to import your BIM models into Unity via 3D Repo’s open API.
Visit 3D Repo’s API page for more information.
