Add 2D PDF sheets to your Navisworks project with Autodesk Navisworks 2015 PDF reader. Take off quantities and review your project using both 2D sheets and 3D models in a single project environment.

General Usage Instructions

You can add PDF sheets to your project like you would any other format, using either the “Append” command or the “Import Sheets & Models” command from the Project Browser. Since PDF files do not contain scale information you need to manually set the scale. This is easiest done through menu View > Windows > Set Scale by Measurement where you can pick one or more distances and enter the distance to calculate the scale.

You can control visual fidelity through the ‘Resolution(DPI)’ setting in the Options Editor for the PDF File Reader. To access hit F12 and navigate to File Readers > PDF. The default value is 300 and will work in most cases.

If you require more detail you can increase this value, but be aware that this also increases memory requirements and may impact performance. You may also decrease the value to reduce memory requirements. Remember to Refresh the sheet so it can re-imported with the modified settings.
