The Twinmotion export Add-on was created with Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 and ARCHICAD 20 only installs Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.


Download and install the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013

New Artlantis Render/Studio 6 export plug-in (released with ARCHICAD 18 Update 8004) does not install properly on Windows

Affected version: 18 | Severity: workaround applicable | ID: 203955

{i} Note: This issue was fixed in ARCHICAD18 Update 9013


The ARCHICAD 18 update 8004 installs the newly available Artlantis Render/Studio 6 export plug-in to a wrong location on Windows Operating Systems.


The solution is to download the plug in from add-on site, and manually copy the necessary .apx and .dll files to the corresponding locations in the updated ARCHICAD 18 folder.

Place the CAtl6_64.dll file to the GRAPHISOFT/ARCHICAD 18 root folder and the ArtlantisRender-Studio_6_Out.apx file to the GRAPHISOFT/ARCHICAD 18/Add-Ons/Import-Export folder. See the screenshots about the locations below.
