Hi Michael,

Now it is 2017 and I installed a piece called Navisworks Simulate that came with our 'Premium' suite of building software. I tried adding a 2D document at once because that is something I found really nice in BIMx and wanted to give it a go in our Autodesk environment. Unfortunately, Navisworks Simulate quit this attempt with the comment the pdf file in question did not contain any 3D information.
Am I missing something or is 2D functionality exclusively for the Navisworks Manage version? Or has the 2D functionality been somehow sweated out of the software in the past couple of years?
Or, does it just not work by adding more models and I need to use some special command?
Best wishes,
