    Default Navisworks Clash Detection with Revit

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    We don’t really use Revit but do occasionally get some Revit models. In cases like this, we sometimes want to run a quick clash detection on their own model in Navis Manage 2012. What is the best way to do this?

    Export to IFC? If we do that, it comes into Navis as 1 entity and would take a lot of filtering to setup clash batches.

    Export out to CAD then Append into Navis?

    Any guidance appreciated!

    Default Navis + revit

    Revit 2013 has Navis support built in.
    Revit 2012 - you need to install a plug-in to export to navis file.

    is there a setting so that the service or "layer" comes across into Navis from Revit so I can filter?
