Can anyone please tell me where I can download NWEXPORT? I'm running AutoCad Mechanical 2012 and NavisWorks Manage 2012 ... I'd like to use the Switchback feature in Navis but I don't have nwexport ...

Hi dgraham2

The Navisworks exporter command is NWCOUT, so please check if that command is recognized.

If not, perhaps Navisworks was installed before AutoCAD Mechanical 2012 since the installer only installs the plugin over supported applications that are currently installed.

To resolve the issue:

1. Open Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features

2. Select Autodesk Navisworks 2012 64 bit Exporter Plugins from the list

3. Select File > Uninstall/Change

4. In the installer, select Add or Remove Features

5. Scroll down and unmark AutoCAD 2012 from the list of plugins to remove the plugin if it installed to other AutoCAD applications

6. Click update to uninstall the plugin

Then repeat the steps above again, but this time in step 5, ensure that AutoCAD 2012 is marked to install the plugin.

If that still fails to install the plugin, I would try uninstalling the exporter plugin, and try installing the standalone service pack version of the plugin here:

Please let me know if you have further issues/questions. If this resolves the issue, please mark this post as solved.
