Maybe you can help with my problem. I'm currently running AutoCAD 2011, Bentley Piping V8i (Autoplant) and Navisworks Simulate 2011 all on my computer.
When I load my mechanical/piping model in to Navisworks 2011, I now only get autoplant elbows visible and all the piping shows as wire frame.
I've even downloaded and run the Bentley piping object enabler (R18) but still no luck.
I've selected the options/file-readers/dwg loader version, and changed through 2011/2010/2009 etc and they don't make a difference.
Have you any ideas what I could try next ?
(Previously I was using autocad 2010 and testing with a trial version of Navisworks Manage and that seem to work fine)
Thanks for your question.
Could you check the "DWG Loader Version" in global option? And please make sure you choose the correct version for the DWG files since the object enabler must be of the same year.
Please let me know if you have further problems.
From your screenshot, it looks like the AutoPLANT objects are being converted, but they are still coming in the wireframe. This leads me to believe that the render mode is still set to Automatic in the options editor. Do you have anything stated as missing in the scene statistics?
Please try the following
1. Open Navisworks
2. Open the Options Editor [F12]
3. Expand File Readers > DWG/DXF
4. Ensure the Render Mode select box is set to "Shaded"
5. Open your file or hit F5 to refresh the model if it is already open.

Hi James and John,
Thanks for your replies to my question. Yes, changing the "render mode" to "shaded" corrected the situation.
I can now see all entities from my model within Navisworks Simulate display.
Thankyou for your help.
I am also having this problem, using AutoCAD 2014 & CADWorx Plant 2014.
Scene Stat's : Missing object enabler for application "CADWorxPlant| To disable this dialog from appearing| set PROXYNOTICE to 0.| Drawings created with CADWorx Plant can| be viewed in plain AutoCAD by loading| an Object Enabler (CADWorxPlant.dbx)" (72 objects)
So it seems the problem is the CADWorxPlant.dbx file? but this is a clean install (last week) and the file is there (searched for it), is it possible to link this file to Navisworks....?
