  • How to download lower version
    Sungjin Park | 二月 17, 2020

  • User-Defined Aspects from Smartplant 3D to Navisworks
    Donna Flores | 一月 21, 2019

    How to add user-defined aspects from Smart3D to Navisworks? Currently, our added aspects do not appear in Navisworks to add new obstruction Volume Type in NAVISWORKS

  • Aspects from Smart3D
    Вера Вартиайнен | 十月 22, 2018

    There are not aspects into Navisworks excepting 'simple phisical' and 'insulation'. Other aspects 'maintenance', 'Operation', 'Reference Geomerty' and userdefinded aspects don't transmite from *.vue. How can we solve this problem?

    Donna Flores | 一月 18, 2019

    hi, I also got a problem like this. Did you happen to resolve this one? or got a reply from navisworks team?

  • GOOD
    Bibi Nguyen | 十一月 16, 2017

    Very good!!!!

  • Works great!

    It works excellent! To all of you who cannot see the properties from SP3D in the Navis enviroment, you should try selecting all the way up to the first element of the tree. Let's assume you are selecting a pipe, Navis selects the first object, in this case it is the Geometry or the Insulation of the pipe. If you look at the selection tree, you can select the element PIPE, which includes the insulation and geometry. Doing this should display the properties correctly in the properties tabs. Also you can check if the SP3D properties were loaded correctly by going to Options > Interface > Quick Properties > Definitions and trying to add a quick property to the list. If there is a "SmartPlant 3D" option in the Category selection list, you can be sure that SP3D properties where loaded correctly. Greetings!

    Nice. Would be even better if the parent system of the piperuns (i.e.the Pipeline) would display in the selection-tree

  • Cannot see attributes
    Kevin Park | 六月 20, 2017

    Can load 3D model successfully but cannot see the attributes even thought i palced mdb2 and vue with same name in same folder.

    Вера Вартиайнен | 八月 16, 2017

    The objects have properties. Only they are located on a separate tab "SmartPlant3D". But there are two nuances. First, when creating a review, there should be labels that transfer these properties to a .vue file; secondly, properties have only smart objects, the geometry lying on the lowest level of the object does not have such properties, and therefore the "SmartPlant3D" tab in this case not visible.

  • Inserted AutoCAD file's cylinder shapes issue and attribute issue
    WASEEM AKHTAR | 三月 30, 2017

    Dear Sir, Thank you very much to you and your team for making this plugin. Everything are coming perfect except following two concern. 1) We have inserted AutoCAD file in SP3D and making SPR combining with other SP3D objects. Objects are proper visualized in SmartPlant Review but in Navisworks manage all cyliner shape of inserted AutoCAD file are coming as box in blue colour. When we are opening same AutoCAD file directly in Navisworks Manage shapes are coming proper. 2) Although we are opening .vue file with .mdb2 generated with SPR, we are unable to see the properties. vue and mdb2 files have same name and are placed in same location. Please let us know if we are missing some steps. Thanks in advance.

    WASEEM AKHTAR | 四月 10, 2018

    Dear Naviswork team, Cylindrical geometry inserted from AutoCAD file is showing as rectangle only, as earlier. We have used latest plug-in. Could you please suggest some way out.
