Description

When working out of a Autodesk® Navisworks® model while using Autodesk® AutoCAD® as your design software, Navis To Acad allows a user to instantly transfer geometry, points, and transformations from Navisworks to AutoCAD in real time.

 

Many times it becomes neccisary to reference geometry in a Navisworks model from a file that was not provided to you. With the Mesh->Acad functionality you can instantly transfer the selected geometry from Navisworks to the last active AutoCAD drawing as a block. You also have the option to export each selected object as seperate blocks, with or without the Navisworks properties written as attributes of those blocks.

 

Have you ever been working with a Navisworks model and had to reference a location in AutoCAD? A normal workflow would be to copy and paste the values from the Measure tools dockable panel one at a time. The Points->Acad tool allows you to instantly reference points used in the measurement tool into the last active AutoCAD dwg. Simply snap some points using the "Point to Point" measurement tool in Navisworks, then chose to reference the first point, second point, or both points in AutoCAD and spheres will be drawn at those points. You can also use the "Points->Acad" button in the ribbon.

 

Another feature of this app allows you to instantly apply move transformations to objects in AutoCAD. Once the objects are moved in Navisworks, right click on the still selected objects and select the "Transform->Acad" option. If the objects are found in any open drawing in AutoCAD, the transforms will be applied to them.

 

Pre-requisite: The AutoCAD product needs to be installed in your machine to transfer the points from Navisworks to AutoCAD.

  • Simple but Effective
    Rick Lindmar | September 02, 2021

    Simple app with huge time savings for modeling. 


  • 5 Ds of ACAD
    Lyle Tsosie | June 10, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Dodge, dip, dive, duck, and dodge what you see in Navis but can't in ACAD. Or hit it if you like. The choice is yours. Also lets you see locations to hit like tank POCs and floor penetrations. It's an unbelievable time saver. Save with the yearly plan.

    I use this on a daily basis. My productivity would be much less if I didnt have it. I dont think I could do without it.
