    NWD to Revit

    Hi guys,

    I am working with a naviswork NWD file, and it is horrible.. I can't hook myself to anything, the object is just transparent and not a complete solid.. is there a way I could convert the NWD file into a complete geometry?

    thanks for your help!

    If I am not mistaken the NWD file is the Navisworks coordination model. There is a button in revit to "link coordination model" (on the insert tab) and this will let you view it in revit

    Not really. My understanding is that it isnt really "there," so much as its a graphical representation to show you what would be there. Thats Its also not solid, which is why it wont show in Hidden Line mode.

    makes sense Twice,

    Actually, it was an autocad 3D shape, it was not working at all with NWD file. The reason for this was that I could not any face to work with.. no anchor no nothing..
    With Autocad import it was horrible and was not showing 90% of the model, however, the best way I found was to export as a DXF file, then import into revit. That way I had the full 3D model and could use the faces anchor !
