"Free NavisExport" is a free Autodesk® Revit® Add-in that makes batch export of Revit models and 3D Views to Autodesk®  Navisworks® "NWC" files possible.


A simple user form allows the user to select the models to be exported (whether they are in the same directory or in separate directories, or whether they are hosted on BIM 360 Design) and the output folder.


The entire models can be exported automatically, which is a huge time saver. The user can also specify individual 3D views to be exported across several models based on a view name keyword, and all Navisworks Export settings can be specified through the user interface.


This add-in requires Autodesk® Navisworks® Manage or the Navisworks NWC Export Utility to be installed.

  • Best NWC Exporter
    Shajin Pk | February 14, 2023 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Its the best nwc exporter. We can export  nwc from multiple revit without opening revit file. I have used it for revit 2020. waiting for the 2022 release.

    * If possible please included exporting from Revit server also.

  • Can I Export to .NWD?

    Can I Export to .NWD?

    rajat gupta | February 09, 2023

    Revit only export file to .NWC format. either you can open your revit file in naviswork directly from the file location, at the same location .NWC file will be created. You can't save naviswork file in .nwc format.

  • Time saver!!! ++ export options not available in BIM360
    Paul Rosales | June 13, 2022 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This exporter has been a huge time saver. Also there are export options that can not be changed when exporting .nwc's through BIM360. Specifically Facet factor and some others cannot be changed when exporting .nwc's to BIM360.


    Thanks for the great APP!!!

  • Just brilliant
    James Arthur | July 23, 2021

    A simple but totally brilliant app. If you are dealing with multiple discipline models for a job this tool is a godsend. Has saved me days worth of opening and exporting files. Would rate 6 stars if I could! 
    Developer support is near instantaneous and when I have had an issue it has been solved quickly and above what I expected.

    Keep it up!

  • Doesn't appear to work with BIM 360 Design
    Shaun Clough | February 18, 2021 Verified Download (What's this?)

    I tried this but the when I click the BIM 360 button no models appear and then I get a fatal error on the add in.

    Bird Tools (Publisher) | October 30, 2022

    This has been solved ages ago as I believe Shaun recalls us solving his issue immediately back then.

  • Time saver!
    Kendra Chan | December 04, 2020 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This saved me so much time. Now I do not have to open different views in different files to export them individually. 

    my project has 66 different areas to export and this has saved me a lot of time!


    Even better now with BIM 360 support!

    Bird Tools (Publisher) | December 08, 2020

    Thank you for the 5-Star rating Kendra! Glad to have improved your productivity and saved you so much time! Cheers! Make sure to check the rest of our tools, they're time savers as well!

  • Good understanding of user needs
    Kabsu Chae | October 14, 2020

    The ability to batch save multiple RVT files to NWC by specifying a specific Revit view is great. 

    Bird Tools (Publisher) | October 16, 2020

    Thank you for you positive review Kabsu, and for your suggestions. We'll be working on implementing them and the latest version will be available very soon.
