Tutorial - Revit to Navisworks (Penn State BIM Wiki)

I finally had space on my hard drive to install Navisworks. Looking up some information I stumbled upon a great resource for BIM, Revit, and 4D... The Penn State BIM Wiki.

  • Revit to Navisworks

    There is a Revit plugin to export a Navisworks file directly from Revit which maintains much of the data related to the Revit file. This plugin is available in the Tools menu in Revit Building and Revit Structure provided it was installed with the installation of Navisworks. If you are working on your home computer and you have not installed Navisworks with the Revit exporter, you can use one of the AE Computer Lab machines for this export. Note that it is not a standard export option, but instead was developed using the Revit API and is listed in the Revit application as a tool. This function will save the file as a Navisworks .nwc file which can be opened directly in Navisworks.

  • Revit to Navisworks for Clash Detection

    Research Goal and Objectives

    This workflow will take you through the process of exporting a Revit file to Navisworks to use clash detection. The clash detective tool in Navisworks is a very useful tool to use, and is a great way to use Navisworks and Revit for MEP, structural, or electrical coordination, as well as other trades.

I also searched the word "Revit" in their Wiki and click here to see all the results.

Always great to find more sources of information and students using Revit.
