Win64, English

VDC Toolbox
Instantly transfer points and transformations from Autodesk® Navisworks® to Autodesk® AutoCAD® in real time.

General Usage Instructions

To make the "Points->Acad" dockable panel to appear, go to the "Tool-Add-ins 1" tab and select the "Points->Acad" icon. 

Point->Acad Usage

Points->Acad uses the Point to Point measurement tool to transfer points from Navisworks into the active AutoCAD Document. With a point (or points) selected in the model using Navisworks Measure "Point to Point" tool, you can select the “Sphere at First Point”, “Sphere at Second Point”, or “Sphere at Both Points” button to draw a sphere in the last active AutoCAD drawing accordingly.  If there is more than one instance of AutoCAD open, you may get unexpected results. The Units dropdown will allow you to translate into either inches or millimeters. 

Transform->Acad Usage

Set the selection resolution to “First Object”. Select the desired object(s) to transform. With the object(s) selected, go to the "Items Tools" tab, "Transform" palette, and move the object with the Move tool. When the object is moved (transformed) where you would like it, right click on the selected object(s) and select Transform->Acad from the right click menu. All open AutoCAD documents will be searched for the corresponding object(s) and if they are found, the objects will be moved. You will be able to tell if an object is found because if it was found and successfully moved in AutoCAD, the transformation will be reset in Navisworks
