Well - just a tich over that 3mb limit... 37.8 mb.... :smileysurprised:


it was made from a navisworks file that has 3 revit models combined. The Navis is a little offer 33mb - which is big for a Navis file.


So there is a limit to the file size DR can handle... That is not good..  

I have a client who is one of the top web designers looking for a free viewer to use in their company for those who are not computer savvy.

any ideas.... I thought about navis freedom - but they want to be able to see it on ipads.


THanks for your help!!




Have you made an official request for this? This could be something they would be very interested in hearing about and they could make an upgrade. Just a thought :smileyhappy:

I have been using Design Review Dwfx files of over 180megs daily and not once had issues untill last 23 months where recently created 35meg and 66meg dwfx Models wont open.

Seems suspiciously to be when I created these dwfx files- Pre or Post Autodesk 360 dwf usage.

Tell your client to use Navisworks Freedom. Free Viewer much better then Design review.
