Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting Navisworks into Revit, part of BIM Tools Weekly.
- [Instructor] Yep, you heard it correctly,…we can now bring Navisworks into Revit.…Pretty exciting stuff, huh?…The thing is there's so much incompatibility…between Revit and everything else…we kind of need a crutch here.…Autodesk has given us that crutch.…So the best example, the silly Civil folks…are playing around in Civil 3D,…if they are truly modeling site features…in actual underground utilities…we can't just bring that directly into Revit, now can we?…The first thing we want to do is create…an NWD of your Civil 3D site.…An NWD will basically bind the Civil 3D components.…
Obviously you need to be in alignment…by either origin to origin or by shared coordinates.…So in Navisworks I have a Site-Civil.nwc.…We can see we have our piping,…we have some topo.…I'm going to do a Save As…and I'd like to save this as an NWD.…Notice that Navisworks can now save 2016 to 2018,…so it's forward and backwards compatible.…I'm going to click Save.…Now I'm going to jump into Revit…where I have my building, but no site.…
First thing I'm going to do is Link Revit.…
