Architecture, Engineering & Construction
Accelerate the design, build, and operate lifecycle with the world’s most extensible and widely used real-time development platform that lowers costs, saves time, and streamlines workflows.
Accelerating innovation across the AEC industry
Design and data visualization
Get to better designs, faster. From concept to data integration, visualization and prototyping, we enable architects and engineers to catch and adjust flaws while easily collaborating on designs at scale in immersive, interactive 3D environments.
Sales and marketing
Deliver experiences that win bids by creating rich scenarios that immerse clients in the buying process. From online configurators to virtual showrooms, build unique 3D, interactive experiences that engage them emotionally.
Training and safety
Build training applications that enable learning in an interactive, immersive 3D space, which speeds up knowledge transfer, reduces physical mockup costs, and lowers risks of on-site construction injuries.
View the latest design & construction plans streamed to your device onsite, while leveraging BIM (Revit) metadata in assembly sequencing visualizations.
Look closer, that’s the power of real-time 3D
Design, engineer, or construct buildings in VR, allow clients to experience an environment before it exists, train without being constrained by physical boundaries, and iterate across teams before the concrete is poured. What once seemed a futuristic dream is today a reality with Unity, the world’s leading real-time development platform.
The real-time development platform of choice
For designers, engineers, and trailblazers across AEC, Unity is the most versatile and widely used real-time 3D platform for visualizing products and building interactive and virtual experiences.
We provide unmatched extensibility and adaptability with a powerful C# scripting system, comprehensive API and extensive documentation. Source code access can be purchased for under-the-hood C++ development.
With its intuitive UI and tools, we make it easy to jumpstart a working prototype and bypass low-level programming. Changes are easy and instant through the magic of real-time, giving you more time to create and iterate.
Unparalleled platform support
Maximize your reach with our support for 25+ platforms. We partner early and deeply with publishing platforms so you can build once and deploy everywhere, including mobile and XR.
Included is a robust and well-documented API with access to a complete range of features – including physics, rendering, and communications – to enable a rich interaction model and easy integration with other systems.
Optimal graphic performance
Our Scriptable Render Pipeline (SRP) provides total flexibility for graphics optimization. The HD Render Pipeline (HDRP) offers world-class visual quality on high-performance hardware, while the Lightweight Render Pipeline (LWRP) maintains responsive performance when scaling for mobile.
A massive catalog of assets and tools
The Unity Asset Store gives you access to the largest marketplace of off-the-shelf assets and productivity tools to jumpstart your project. These building blocks cut down on development time to get you up and running and across the finish line faster.

Better hospital designs with VR
With their new operating rooms and care facilities perfectly simulated in interactive VR and 360 video, Mortenson’s customers can realistically experience future workspaces for benefits like streamlined patient services and more efficiency.
Improving ROI in AEC using XR
Learn how Unity empowered Studio 216 to create sales & marketing real-time visualizations in mixed reality. Watch a variety of client examples showcasing both stunning visualizations and team collaboration in order to iterate their designs across platforms.
Fewer risks, safer workers with VR
Skanska collaborated with creative VR and AR agency OutHere, implementing a Unity-based VR experience into their standard worker-safety training program, enhancing construction-site safety.
Prototype and navigate in real-time immersive environments
Aurecon worked on the Brisbane airport and Unity empowered them to navigate through environments, ID security flaws, and test design layout options. With real-time collaboration, it allowed for the modification and prototyping before the work starts, saving time and money.
Start creating today by unlocking your BIM data
Get the productivity tools you need to immediately begin creating real-time experiences using your design data. Import it, prepare interactive experiences, and publish to multiple platforms – going from BIM import to real-time publishing has never been so easy.
Unity & Autodesk: Powering your creativity
Learn how you can quickly import, prep, and optimize your data. Eliminate friction with the smooth and seamless import of Revit and 3ds Max directly into Unity – while keeping your BIM data intact.
Highlights from Autodesk University
In November 2018, audiences learned about our latest real-time innovations, witnessed cutting-edge demos, and met visionary clients. In interactive sessions, Unity experts showcased how 3D content-creation tools are accelerating designs, improving lifecycle workflows, and lowering costs.
