Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Exporting from Revit to Navisworks, part of Navisworks Essential Training.
…As you may already know, Navisworks will opening revit file natively.…While this is a good thing, Navisworks can be very slow…to open and it might take along time to translate that file.…While doing this, also, some data doesn't quite…make the jump across the transition all so well.…When we physically export a Revit model to a Navisworks format, not only…does all the data come across, by your Navisworks model will open much faster.…Also, you can control what objects are pushed over to the Navisworks…format, but turn them on or off in the view you are exporting.…
This video will focus on preparing Revit…to be exported to a Navisworks file format.…Also, we'll look at the enablers needed to perform this task.…To get started, let's open up Revit.…Under the Projects, let's click Open.…Let's go to the directory where you're keeping your documents.…Let's go to the Revit directory.…Let's grab the architectural model.…Next click open.…Now as we open a model, it's a good idea to go to a…three D view, that way you can see everything that you're trying to export.…
