Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Navisworks file types, part of Navisworks Essential Training.
…Let's take a look at the file types in Navisworks.…There are three different types of Navisworks files.…The first is an NWC.…This is called a Navisworks Cache file.…There's an NWF.…That's called the Navisworks File Set.…And last but not least, there's an NWD.…This is a native Navisworks Model.…Let's take a look at NWC.…NWC we said, is called the Navisworks Cache file.…This file is generated in two ways.…If you open any kind of file directly, Navisworks will generate an NWC, this file…acts as the interpreter between Navisworks and the software you you're using.…
When you export a file from say Revit, that export will generate an NWC file.…This file can then be merged or appended into Navisworks.…An NWC file cannot be saved.…The second type of file is called the NWF.…This file will serve as a host for all the merged or appended files.…This file will actually contain live links to the contributing NWC files.…This is the file type used in production, the reason for that is…when you update either in AutoCAD or a Revit file or export a Revit…
