Is the NWDOut option that is normally installed into AutoCAD when Navisworks is installed is part of the FDS install too? We have a customer that has FDS but does not have the NWDOut tool that they have seen\experienced with the standalone version of Navisworks and AutoCAD. Has this functionality been removed in the FDS version of Navisworks?
Sure,the NWDOut option is normally installed into AutoCAD when Navisworks.
Sometimes,"NWDOUT" option showing up in AutoCAD & verticals as unknown commands, the reason is that the exporter failed to register the commands with that version of AutoCAD. Typically this is as a result of the AutoCAD application being installed subsequent to Navisworks, in which case re-running the setup of Navisworks to reinstall or repair the AutoCAD exporter should also fix it.
Use APPLOAD command to reload the Navisworks ARX files, found in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared\Navisworks\20xx\NWExport20xx\
the exporter will register its commands, doing the same thing that the installer does.
BTW,please use NWLAOD command to make sure navisworks exporter commans is ready before using nwnavigator and nwcout, etc.
