Quick Tip - Navisworks Exporter Pack

I have a consultant who uses Navisworks and he wanted to view my Revit model.... Unfortunatly Navisworks dosent read Revit files.... (even though it can read umpteen number of file formats- except Revit!!)

So Autodesk has a plug-in for Revit that allows you to export your model as a .nwc file.

Here is a little about the plug-in from the download web site:

The distributable NWC file exporter enables project teams using Autodesk® Naviswork® software to generate whole-project models for simulation and analysis. Project team members can generate the optimized NWC file directly from their design applications. This capability is provided without necessitating a licensed seat of Autodesk Navisworks 2012 software on the same machine. The NWC exporter works with a range of products, including the AutoCAD®-based and Revit®-based Autodesk products, as well as Autodesk® 3ds Max®, Bentley MicroStation®, and Graphisoft ArchiCAD® software. The NWC file format supports transfer of both object geometry and associated metadata from the design applications into Autodesk Navisworks 2012 software.
Here is a link to the download:

The tool will be available to you under the External tools icon on the Add-Ins tab.
