The Bottom Line

Understand Navisworks file formats. Having a complete understanding of the different file formats is important. The 3D files are the building blocks for any successful Navisworks project. Take time to fully understand file formats before moving ahead.

Master It What are the three native file formats that Navisworks uses? What is the advantage of using the NWF format rather than the NWD?

Open and append files. Appending and merging files is the proper way to create highly complex yet intelligent 3D models. Aggregating and sharing this information with a larger audience helps drive efficiency and increased project awareness.

Master It How can the Merge feature complement the design review process with an extended team?

Configure object enablers. Not all files types are created equally. Proper planning and understanding of the various file types will help you identify where object enablers are required and configure the proper setup to ensure uninterrupted access.
