Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video Opening files directly, part of Navisworks Essential Training.
…Why has Navisworks become so popular, so quickly?…There are quite a few reasons, but I…can think the most fundamental reason is the fact…that Navisworks is here to be compatible with…almost any file type you can throw at it.…Autodesk alone has dozens of different file types.…Some compatible with one another, and some not.…Not to mention MicroStation and every other software…vendor trying to get you to use their product.…What Navisworks does is create a compatibility…that really no other graphical software can offer.…
In this video, we're going to explore…the different files types Revit can open directly.…We'll also bring in an AutoCAD file…directly and see how Navisworks handles it.…So, to begin with, in Navisworks, I'm going to click my Open button.…What I want to do, is I want to find an…AutoCAD drawing, so scroll to the directory where you saved your files.…And then go to the AutoCAD directory.…Notice that Navisworks won't see the file immediately.…That's because it's looking for a specific file.…It's looking for a Navisworks file type.…
