Hello everbody I want to do one cuestion about grating of Plant3D. When I open any project of plant3D with Navisworks I can see all propierties of Plant3D in the tab "AutoCAD", all perfils are visualization fine but the grating is not appear. Only appear transparent box in the place of grating. I think that the problem is that Navisworks don't recognize the hatch pattern. Is posible to do that the grating visible?
When I use the command NWCout or NWDout I can see all objects (grating too) fine. But the problem is that the propierties of Plant3D (especification of pipe, size, and others) don't appear, this problem I was explain an other post.
I was able to reproduce the issue by creating my own sample file with a grating. I have documented this issue and sent it to our development team for investigation.
I recommend logging a support call to Autodesk Support via the subscription site link below so that your support case can be tracked, and we can investigate your files as well:

This thread dates back to 2009, yet in 2013 I seem to be having the exact problem. If I use NWCOUT from a Plant3D2013 model set to ShapeModel, then all is fine. But if I try pointing NW Reader at the P3D dwg, it only brings in as if it were set to LineModel.
Am I missing a setting? Or has this just not been fixed in 4 years?
The only work around I have found for this, is to explode the hatch which will turn it into Lines which will show up. If your in mid design then its a problem. For the final product however it does look nice if it wont change. (After I explode the hatch I turn it into a block)
Problem is still exisitng in Naviswoks Manage 2014 SP1 (see attached) !
Does Autodesk plan to fix the problem or will never do it ?
