Unity Reflect for AEC

Launching in fall 2019, Unity Reflect makes it easy for multiple stakeholders to review BIM/CAD projects in real-time 3D and automatically sync updates from Autodesk Revit and Trimble SketchUp across any platform, from tablets and desktops to VR and AR.

From BIM/CAD to real-time 3D in one click

Whether you’re a hardcore developer or have never touched a line of code, Unity Reflect lets you make better, faster decisions during design reviews and connect design and construction by bringing BIM to the field with real-time 3D.

What AEC firms say about Unity Reflect

Visualizing projects in the HoloLens and other augmented reality platforms is becoming increasingly important in our industry. Unity Reflect is great because it gives design teams the ability to make changes and see those reflected instantly on-site in AR.

At VolkerWessels we create and update our design models quickly and frequently. We see great potential for Unity Reflect to remove friction and time from the design review and validation processes.

Eric Mourits, Lead VRLab, VolkerWessels Infra Competence Centre

The transfer of information and flexibility of linking into other programs has been impressive and we’re excited to see how this can augment our existing capabilities.

Unity Reflect in the news

Reflect could be a game-changer for Revit power users. When users want to share their work with a team, they can now do so with both high accuracy and broad device compatibility.

The product’s integration and feature set looks pretty slick and enables designers to get outside a cumbersome and slow BIM system, to quickly manipulate, query and change designs with any number of collaborators.

AEC Magazine

There were previously cloud services and other third-party solutions that allowed a parametric model to be transferred to the Unity engine, but never with the ease of a single click or of continuous updates.

Jeff Yoders, Midwest Editor and Associate Technology Editor, ENR

Unity Reflect seems incredibly simple for the user, but behind the scenes Reflect is optimizing a wealth of data and preserving BIM metadata, at the same time. Which as Revit users know, is a drawn-out and painful process – that is, until now.

Native integration into Revit and SketchUp

Prepare and transfer BIM/CAD models into real-time 3D in one click, with out-of-the-box support for Revit and SketchUp.


Seamless data federation

Seamlessly bring together BIM/CAD metadata from multiple designers and engineers that are live-linked to interactive, immersive experiences. 


Real-time 3D viewers

Interactive 3D renderings are live-linked to the original design models. Every time you make a change in your design application, it’s displayed in the real-time 3D viewers. It’s that simple.

Key benefits

Designers don’t need to leave the tools they love

From Revit and SketchUp, you can prepare and transfer BIM/CAD data for real-time 3D and make changes to models during review sessions. Creating AR and VR experiences has never been easier.

Don’t code? No problem.

To use Unity Reflect, you don’t need to be a Unity developer or know how to write even a single line of code.

One-click data preparation

Seamlessly optimize and federate BIM and CAD data from your design applications and generate interactive 3D renderings that are live-linked to your BIM model.

Stay on track and on budget

Meet increasingly condensed client timelines by bringing key stakeholders into a unified real-time 3D experience to share ideas and gather and implement feedback instantly.

Easily customizable

Unity Reflect requires no coding skills, but it also provides the flexibility to customize projects using the Unity Editor. Bring your projects into Unity to enhance the quality of your design review experience and create custom AR/VR applications connected to your BIM data. 

Build once and distribute anywhere

Thanks to the power and flexibility of the Unity platform, stakeholders can review models in real-time 3D on the platform of their choice: iOS, Android, Mac, PC, AR/VR devices, and more.

Let's get started.
