    Engine Plugin
    This product contains a code plugin, complete with pre-built binaries and all its source code that integrates with Unreal Engine, which can be installed to an engine version of your choice then enabled on a per-project basis.

Use the power of asynchronous C++ functions to quickly search through your scene's metadata without freezing the editor or game. Designed for speed, these functions are exposed to blueprint and can be used throughout your project.

Use the built in Editor UI in your workflows when managing large scenes containing user asset data, or build your own runtime application on top of the blueprint functions.

The plugin is tested with large Datasmith models such as the Snowdon Towers sample from Revit 2024, which is the model featured in the screenshots.
