When importing a Civil 3D model into NavisWork, NavisWork is crashing. The only information in the Civil 3D model is 4 pipe networks. I am using Civil 3D 2011 and NavisWork Manage 2011. The NWDOUT from Civil 3D is also crashing.
I have tried from another computer and get the same result.... I have SP1 installed for both Civil 3D and NavisWork. The file size is about 4Mb.
I add the same problem with other files but have managed to fix it by removing the other network references. Not ideal though..
Solved! Go to Solution.
NWDOUT is no longer supported, can you please try NWCOUT?
If this is still not working can you please try installing the 2011 Civil Object enabler?
If this fails can you please add your forum username to the crash report dialog when it appears and let us know so we can look for the problem.
We have identified the problem, it is coming from one of the referenced model. If we remove a particular pipe network it is working fine.
Any idea on how to solve it without having to recreate the pipe network?
Jerome, did the same user create both pipe networks in question? I have run into issues when a user created utility info using a local parts catalog (from their C drive) instead of from the network catalog located on a public drive. We can usually view the pipe network on other machines, but we usually get all kinds of errors when trying to adjust or swap parts. This may be causing a similar problem.
What I did to fix the problem is export the original pipe network to an xml file, open a clean drawing, and import that xml file again. Use the new drawing file for navisworks. I used this method with your file with no issues.
