Will Navisworks be able to view SmartPlant 3D(.vue) files anytime soon?

NW will open DRI's quite nicely (including display sets), push the SP3D into SmartPlant Review and save the DRI.

You must be talking about PDS. SmartPlant can't save to DRI.

SmartPlant which? "SmartPlant is the name of a family of products that include SP 3D, SP Review, SP P&ID, SP Foundation, SP Instrumentation, SP Electrical, etc.

SmartPlant Review can open SmartPlant 3D files and then create DRI files. We do it every day.

hi there,

As far as i know,

SP3D can produce Vue file , no other formats. right.

SPR can open VUE or Dri file....but since no dri generated from SP3D so only VUE can be opened in SPR.

In SPR the SAVE AS functionality can only save as VUE file & cannot save as DRI file.

VUE file is not supported by Navisworks.

May i seek your advice on how you do it??

SP3D can output DGN, but it is not organized , no properties, one color...useless. Edited by: intratech on Mar 12, 2010 10:13 AM

There is also a product called SmartPlant Review Publisher,
which can do conversion jobs on a sceduled manner.
But I do not know if it can convert a VUE file into something NavisWorks can read.

SP3D generates xml file while generating Vue file. This xml file is nothing but information of all the data , attributes which SP3D stores.  Someone has tried importing this xml into Navisworks?????

 

I have created animation for SP3D Plant Model with using Navisworks.  Creating dgn files from sp3d model and then importing dgn into Navisworks. It worked really smooth for me. For creating animation i dont require model data attributes information. This way you can use the naviswork for atleast making good animation. :smileyindifferent:

The good news there is an intelligent smartplant 3d interface available for navisworks Incl plant hierarchy, equipment nozzles, object attributes and geometry. You can review, publish and check clashes with other design data. Further you can publish a 3d PDF as well with unitec's 3D PDF enhancement for navisworks. For further details contact Unitec.de
