Datasmith Software Interop Guides

Guides that describe special considerations that you should know about when you use Datasmith to import content from different source applications.


One of the goals of Datasmith is to support the widest range of industry standard 3D design applications used across industries including architecture, engineering, construction and manufacturing. For the most part, Datasmith treats each of these supported software applications and file formats in similar ways, and produces similar results, as described in the Datasmith Overview pages.

However, each of these supported applications and file formats presents unique challenges and opportunities for the import process. The guides listed below detail additional considerations that are specific to each different data source.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
