Building Information Researchers and Developers OÜ
Batch export Autodesk® Revit® Models and 3D Views to Autodesk® Navisworks® "NWC" files. Supports Autodesk® BIM 360® and Autodesk Construction Cloud® models as well through APS (aka Forge).

General Usage Instructions

This tool can be accessed through the pushbuttons found under the Bird Tools ribbon tab.

The user interface offers the user the choice to select the Revit models to be processed, which can be selected from several directories, or from BIM 360 or the Autodesk Construction Cloud (Revit 2019+), and the output path for the NWC files (which can be either a local directory or a cloud one hosted on BIM 360 or the ACC).

The user can also customize the export options through the checkboxes of the user interface.

The entire model can be exported, or specific 3D views based on a view name keyword. All the 3D views can be selected by leaving the textbox empty.

Once proceed is clicked, the process will start. Every file being processed will be highlighted in blue, and after the export operation is completed successfully, the file will be highlighted in green. In case of failure, the file will be highlighted in red.

The user will be notified when the entire process is complete.

Note that a new "current model" mode has been added as of version 2.0.0 to enable the users to export views in a model that is currently opened and activated.
