Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a data source, part of Navisworks Essential Training.
…Now, wouldn't it be cool if we could just run down to estimating, ask…him for a schedule that's already been filled out, and bring it into Navisworks?…Huh.…Well, we can do that.…We can grab something from either Microsoft Project,…Primavera, or even a dumbed down CSV file.…The purpose of this video is to bring in a CSV file…and auto populate as many fields…as possible with an actual construction schedule.…With your structural NWD file open, make sure your timeline is up and running.…Let's go to Data Sources.…
Let's go to the Add button.…Notice that we can go with Microsoft Project MPX, so we can grab a CSV,…couple different types of Microsoft Projects, Primavera 6…to 8, or P6 down to version 8.3.…Let's grab a CSV.…Browse to where you're keeping your exercise files, and go…to the Timeliner Directory, and grab the file called Timeliner.csv.…Let's click Open.…We need to marry a couple of rows.…So, for the task name, in our column, let's go…to the External Field Name and click the drop down.…
Let's go down to Task Name.…
