Hi DanS_34

This will only work with Revit 2013 and Navisworks 2013.


very novice user to Revit. How does one export a .nwc file containing the grid lines. I've installed the export plug in for navis in Revit 2012 but when exporting no grid lines are showing up when viewing the .nwc file in Navis 2013.
thanks for the help.



This is a wonderful and very needed feature - thanks!

Looks like this info isn't in the element properties thought (unless I'm missing something).

Thanks again.

Lee, even though I love the new tools mentioned here, the biggest pain that I have, and I mentioned this in the NW Beta Testing, is the inability to "EDIT" the grids, i.e., I mean the inability to move the Grid Bubbles our further away from the Physical Model of the buildings..............they are too close to the buildings. Nee a way to 'extend' or grip edit the bubbles to move away.
