The 3D Repo for Autodesk® Navisworks® plugin provides a convenient way of uploading your models directly to 3D Repo from within the Navisworks desktop application.

Currently supported versions: Navisworks Manage/Simulate 2020, 2021 & 2022

Initial Setup

  • Before you upload your Navisworks model, you will need to create a model container in 3D Repo. If you have one already, then you can skip this step

  • Download and install the plugin prior to opening Navisworks desktop application

  • Open your 3D model (.nwc or .nwd) in Navisworks
    Note that .nwf is a reference file without any geometry and does not work for publishing. If you're working with an .nwf model, save it as NWD then follow the steps below

We advise you to take measurements and check that your Navisworks model matches the model units in 3D Repo.

Model Publish

Great! Now that your model is ready, follow the steps below to publish it to 3D Repo:

  • Click on the Publish icon located in the 3D Repo tab (main ribbon menu)

  • In the 3D Repo Model Uploader window provide your login details and click Login. You can switch between 3drepo.io or ca.3drepo.io as the domain server.

  • Navigate over to your model container by selecting the relevant Teamspace, Project and Model

  • Provide a new revision name (alpha-numerical values only & 20 Characters max) and an optional text description.

  • Click on the Upload button and the progress bar will appear

  • Done will indicate a successful upload, a warning message will tell you otherwise.

Once uploaded, your model will start processing on our servers and a model container on 3drepo.io will indicate it.

When your model is ready, you will see a new model revision timestamp.
