I got a question this week about the ability to see revit files in Navisworks (so converted to nwc) as solids. I claim to know a little bit about the Navisworks engine and therefore I replied that I don’t think it’s likely to happen that we will see solids in Navisworks…. (Since the conversion turns solids into faces.)
BUT I was playing around with the online Autodesk viewer for some ifc files. (by the way they look good)When I thought let’s put a nwc file in this viewer and see how that would look.
I see solids… oh and they look good. (one small error with the roof) The Stair is going to a floor that has not been turned on in this model.
Just to highlight the Autodesk online viewer ‘eats’ all these file formats
2D and 3D design file types
These file types can be viewed with the online A360 viewer, the free version of A360, and the paid version, A360 Team.
