Navisworks® Coordination Issues Add-In

Navisworks® Coordination Issues Add-In

Digitally signed app

System operacyjny:


Throughout all phases of a construction project, multi-disciplinary team members need to collaborate and communicate with one another. There are multiple tools and technologies that are used to facilitate those interactions from informal/unstructured mechanisms (e.g. phone calls, emails, face to face meetings) to highly structured and contractual systems (e.g. cost, change or bid management systems). Most project teams need a system that provides structured, audited, and controlled interactions between team members for tracking formal but not contractual interactions, typically referred to as an issue tracking system. ‘Issues’ can comprise questions, clarifications, notifications, descriptions, and alerts across the entire project team. The issue tracking system provides a mechanism to document issues, assign responsibility and view the status of how the issue resolution is progressing.


The Navisworks® Coordination Issues Add-In connects BIM managers and trade partners to project team contributors in the Autodesk Construction Cloud™ to better organize and respond to issues. With this round-trip workflow, issues are created in either the Autodesk Construction Cloud or Navisworks and are viewable and actionable in both, bringing the best of each environment to your next project.


Note: This app uses a custom installer (and not the standard App Store installer).

  • Great addition but still not quite there
    Stephen King | listopada 16, 2021 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    When appending models from model coordination, transformed IFC model positons is not reatained in Navisworks. i.e they are located away from the main model.

    Hi Stephen - Can you create a ticket and pass this on to our support team or your ADSK contact person.

  • Watch your Versioning
    Robert Glover | czerwca 07, 2021 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    This plugin has made a HUGE difference in how Barton Malow handles model related issues. The only issues we've really seen is when multiple users are adding issues in the same NWD and they are using different versions. Easily fixed by updating the plugin but it requires a manual version check. Autoupdate would be great!

  • Fundamental functions are not set up properly
    Dick Elsman | kwietnia 28, 2021 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    Loading models initially works fine, however:

    ·         Decomposition of models is not as logically as NWC's have. DWG are not decomposed by layer but by class type (everything is 3d solid..)

    o    Illogical but initially we can overcome this with search sets, however:

    ·        Properties are not displayed with the proper name, but as a long string in the name defining the grouping of the parameters.

    o    Some sort of pahtname defining the hierarchy in the properties

    §  This is almost undoable and unworkable for search sets

    Solved with new update of navisworks 2021 update 2, thanks. problem still occurs in 2020.

    o    From .dwg, when formula’s are used defining property values, the formala is shown and not the value

    §  Not workable, probably in engine of bim360


    ·         Properties are not included when publishing it to .nwd

    ·         Not acceptable and not workable

    Solved with new update of navisworks 2021 update 2, thanks. problem still occurs in 2020.

    -- edited due to new update.

    Michael Priestman | kwietnia 29, 2021

    We have improved the way we handle properties for models loaded from Model Coordination in Navisworks 2022 and Navisworks 2021 Update 2. If you could try updating to one of those versions, hopefully that should improve things (note that if you upgrade to Navisworks 2021 Update 2, you will have to explicitly check the "Convert Properties" option in the Global Options -> File Loaders -> SVF section). As for the structure of DWG files, they are presented exactly as they are shown in BIM 360 Docs. Navisworks has no control over the structure of the files as they are processed by our cloud services, and not Navisworks.

    Dick Elsman | kwietnia 30, 2021

    This is indeed an improvement, however, in .dwg all properties are stored under "Property sets" then they appear with the groupname as prefix. for instance for instance the propertyset group Corridor information with parameter "volume" will be displayed as parametername: "Corridor information - volume". this can be improved by setting the propertyset group as a tab and not as a prefix. Then still, all formula values from .dwg are displayed with the formula instead of the value

  • Append new model to the NWF.
    Mohamed Aboziad | lutego 21, 2021 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    After Creating the NWF set and Add the models and create the Clashes. I Cannot add a new model to this NWF set.

    I should start again reviewing the clashes if a new model Added.

    Is there any way to do that without losing the current clashes?

    Jeroen Franssens | marca 25, 2021

    I would also like to see the function. I have the same "issue".

    Kavon Samimi | kwietnia 30, 2021

    You can get around this by using a "View" in Model Coordination to create the NWF, and save the NWF in the model coordination folder thru desktop connector. To append new files that show up in model coordination space (web) you would Add Models to the "View" (web) and update the view (web) and reload the NWF to bring in the new files. For this to work, you need Navis manage 2021 + the latest version of desktop connector + the BIM360 Issues plugin installed.

  • Coordination Button not Appearing
    A. Shaher | lutego 18, 2021 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    Dear Autodesk,

    I installed the plug-in on multiple computers but the same issue remains. There should be 3 buttons: coordination, manage issues and about.

    However, the coordination buttons does not show up for me on multiple computers

    Navisworks Applications (Wydawca) | lutego 25, 2021

    Coordination button is only supported in Navisworks 2020(with Update 1) and Navisworks 2021, if you are using a prior version it will not be available.

  • Good addin but missing somthing else
    Al'aaeldin Alsahli | lutego 09, 2021 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    it will be perfect if Autodesk add also the RFI option as well. to view RFI from the model and create ones as well

  • Geometry disappears when translating in Navisworks
    Hayes Johnson | grudnia 09, 2020 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    The plugin is great for getting BIM 360 geometry into Navisworks for further analysis achieved in BIM 360.  It's an easy way for a GC to create a federated model for viewability in the field that represents the latest model coordination efforts.  Unfortunately one of the things I like best about Navisworks is the ability to translate components to look at possible routing options with subcontractors during coordination meetings.  You can't do this in BIM 360 currently.  I would be happy with doing it in Navisworks instead, but as soon as I translate any object it disappears and regenerates at the origin, even after I save the NWF as a NWD.  Unfortunately without this function working it makes more sense for me to have subcontractors upload NWCs in addition to their native files, and then create my NWD the old fashioned way.

    Jarrod Baumann | lutego 10, 2021

    Hayes - I agree the translate elements is essential functionality to support as are other items if using Navisworks to open models from BIM 360 Model Coordination. Autodesk (navisworks development team) is working on it based upon a support request we submitted. For now, here is where they will track it.

  • File Type
    Daryl Key | października 05, 2020 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    One article states that you have to upload an NWD to the coordination space to be able to open and run issues in Navis. We did this and the model does not show. Is this the correct file type? I can see the Revit models only.



    Shayne Hamel | października 07, 2020

    If you email a link to the article you mention we will get it corrected if possible. NWD support is only for models opened through Desktop Connector, Coordination spaces support rvt/dwg/ifc

    Tony Stuart | października 08, 2020

    I think that NWD process was for the first release of this tool... This latest release completely changes the way the tool works (from what I can gather). Have a look at this webinar on the current release.... This webinar occurred last night.;d=DwMFaQ&c=TQzoP61-bYDBLzNd0XmHrw&r=l1VJJGn_x2LvToFkBPuh3G554msPh79N4AlgqqkMBCw&m=d6PsXwTZDiYvPuYdFG_EN2qMlZjjHN1dHUYJ6VoUQ5A&s=V2XXaWMOZHT3-HpYQUvCqid7qHY63_WBUzmy_IcIaN0&e=

    Lauren Collier | grudnia 09, 2020

    This Change from NWD to NWF - was a bad move for many reasons. We want all users identifying issues clash and none clash to an NWD file that is NOT in model Coordination because we collaborate beyond clashes . We want the Automatic Screen Grab to work if it is the NWD or NWF inside of Docs. If a user assigns a clash to the NWF and someone goes to review this clash and clicks on the new NWF hyperlink - it forces a Download because NWFs can't be viewed like the NWD inside of Web Viewer. PLEASE stop forcing Model Coordination for this really great tool you need the same features in both NWD Issues and NWF Issues.

  • Auto Snap and Saved under attachment while create issue thru BIM 360 issue app / coordination
    Wanna Oo | października 02, 2020 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    Would it be possible to save the automatic snap of the issue under attachement tab in BIM360 issues properties palette instead of manually snap then drag/drop in it. ? 

  • Navisworks doesn't show clash colors green/red?
    John de Leeuw | września 30, 2020 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    Why isn't Navisworks capable of showing the exact same green/red clashing objects using the BIM360 Issues integration? See" target="_blank">this image.

  • Good, but can we save Navis files to Docs?
    Justin Lowe | września 23, 2020 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    Will we be able to save the Navisworks model's to docs? This seems critical as a way of replacing Glue.

    Brady Gerig | września 25, 2020

    You can save Navisworks files to docs under project files. You can also use the desktop connector to save models to and they will upload to docs for you.

  • Nice plugin
    Vladimir Danilov | września 07, 2020 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    When will the Navisworks 2021 version be ready?

    Shayne Hamel | października 07, 2020

    Current release supports 2021, so if you have not updated already please do.

  • Great App - need to add screen shots
    Lauren Collier | sierpnia 25, 2020

    This app is critical for VDCing a project in BIM 360. Please add an automatic screen grab of the issue or be able to snag a saved view... it very manual to do it but if your project has point clouds it brings context back to BIM 360. 

    Zach Crumal | sierpnia 31, 2020

    Hi - Happy to let you know that in both directions (NW to MC or MC to NW) automatic screenshots of the issue with clash highlighting will be attached to the issue (if from a MC Clash Issue or during NW Clash Detective even with Markups etc. as well)! We plan to release this next update in the next few weeks! Thank you for your support!

    Lauren Collier | września 01, 2020

    @Zacg Crumal Great to hear this is coming. We need to automatic Screenshot for all Issues not just clashes to go into BIM 360 Issues for Docs & Field. There are several cases this saved view context is necessary well beyond the model coordination integration.

    Mondher Kacem | maja 20, 2020

    Hi, is it possible to share the clashs detection issues from navis to BIM360?


    Zach Crumal | czerwca 24, 2020

    Hi - Yes! Please reach out to your Autodesk Customer Success Manager and we can help fill you in and provide access to our next release currently in Beta! Issues created in both BIM 360 and Navisworks are shared, as well as viewpoint zoom-in and several other options to attach data/documents to an issue as well!

    Thanks for the app, it does the job!

    Zach Crumal | czerwca 24, 2020

    Hi Anthony- more is coming ;) please join our beta for access to the next release and tight integration with BIM 360 Model Coordination. Please reach out to your Autodesk POC/CSM and I can provide access. Thanks

  • Application Compatibility
    Fady Ramez | listopada 13, 2019 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    Dear Autodesk,

    Does the BIM 360 Issues App work on Navisworks Freedom or only Navisworks Manage?

    Best Regards,


    Zach Crumal | czerwca 24, 2020

    Freedom has never allowed any plugins, so Manage is required

  • Using BIM 360 Glue with BIM 360 Docs
    Gilles Pages | października 06, 2019 Sprawdzone pobranie (Co to jest?)

    Dear Autodesk,


    Is there any plans to link the capacities of BIM 360 Glue with BIM 360 Docs issues tracking?

    Best Regards




    Navisworks Applications (Wydawca) | października 10, 2019

    Hi Gilles, this integration is only connecting BIM 360 Issues to Navisworks & BIM 360 Docs, upcoming plans are for integrating BIM 360 Model Coordination data sets directly into NW. BIM 360 Glue (classic) is not part of the next-gen platform/Document Management workflows.

    Brent Tassell | lutego 25, 2020

    Yeah BIM360 Glue is now de-funct & replaced w/- BIM360 Coordinate. The killer is those that have previously deployed Glue on a project - can't de-bus it in order to install Coordinate. Another Autodesk Gazump
