Using Visual Dataprep with Datasmith

This course dives into the Datasmith Dataprep tools, exploring how they can be used to understand and control data before importing it to an Unreal Engine project from programs like Revit or SketchUp.


The Datasmith Dataprep tools are a recent evolution in Unreal Engine. These tools can be extremely helpful for users importing content from a program like Revit or SketchUp, enabling them to understand and control the data they are importing before it is added to the project. In this course, you’ll learn about some of the different ways these tools can be used to help automate workflow. By the end of the course, you’ll be able to import and manipulate a large dataset before adding it to a project.

You will learn how to:

  • Import a datasmith file into a real-time visualization project.
  • Create a Dataprep asset to manipulate incoming data.
  • Add functions to a Dataprep graph to help automate the import process.
  • Identify the key benefits to using a dataprep asset for interpreting large sets of data.
