Yes. Unity Forma is the first product to make use of the Unity Editor’s Mode capabilities, so it’s easy to toggle between Forma (codeless) mode and the standard Unity Editor. Unity Forma also makes it easier to complete tasks that developers working on real-time 3D marketing experiences commonly perform, such as importing 3D product data, staging a product in a scene, and publishing to various channels. It makes it much easier for developers to create configurable marketing content.
No, Unity Forma is a toolkit and requires a separate subscription. For full functionality of Unity Forma, the Unity Industrial Collection is recommended, but Unity Pro and Pixyz Plugin will work as well.

Unity Forma requires Unity 2020.2 to run.
You can import the following formats into Unity Forma:
- Unity Prefab – A reusable, fully prepared asset from a previous Unity project.
- FBX – FBX files from 3D modeling applications like Blender and Autodesk Maya and 3ds Max, or exported from other software products.
- Structured data – Unity Forma can be extended to automatically import structured datasets, including geometry, materials, and variant definitions. It ships with a CSV importer, which can be customized to automate the import process and condense it in a matter of seconds.
Because Unity Forma runs on top of the Unity Industrial Collection, which includes Pixyz Plugin, Unity Forma also supports all of the 35+ formats that Pixyz supports. Learn more about the import process in this blog post.
Unity Forma customers with well-organized datasets can implement a completely automated import process that brings in all product data – geometry, materials, and variant definitions – instantly. Unity Forma’s CSV importer provides the foundation to create an adapter for standardized data sets that need to be imported. To get started with adapters, we recommend working with Unity’s Professional Services team so that you can exactly meet the needs of your standardized data format. Creating and managing your own adapter is also an option.
Unity Forma currently supports exporting projects as runtime builds and addressable assets. We are working on functionalities to support other outputs, such as direct output to gITF, USD, and USDZ.
Yes. Unity Forma works with any version control tool, but we recommend using Plastic SCM.
AR and VR publishing is possible, but at this time it must be executed in Unity Pro mode. Official AR and VR support within Unity Forma are planned for 2021. Today, Unity Forma supports mobile (iOS and Android), WebGL, and web browser-based cloud streaming using our streaming service, Furioos.
