Render Image through Navisworks API?

Is there anyway of programmatically rendering the image to a file using the API, .NET or COM?


Ideally I would like to be able to select the format (jpeg), renderer (Presenter) and Size (Explicit).


I guess it would be possible to use the DrawToBitmap method of the ViewControl but this would only allow the use of the viewport renderer, is this correct?


Many Thanks

I do not think we have implemented DrawToBitmap which overrides from Windows .NET control.

But probably the COM API could help you, which could be called by .NET.
