Hi, there

 

I opened a .dwg file of Plant 3D 2012 in Navisworks Manage 2012. In the .dwg file, i have serval pipes.

 

Here is the problem: in Plant 3D all pipes look ok, but in Navisworks all pipes look like polygon cylinders, which should look like cylinders.

 

How can i do to make my pipes look like cylinders in Navisworks? Anyone knows ahout it, pls help me.

 

See the attched image if i did not make myself clear.

I beleive the OP found the layers were turned off in the orginal file that was being xref'ed.

He couls see them in the model but navis was not.
