We also have a same concern as we are a Ingr Client also using Design Review and also using Naisworks on Large scale for PDS users. We will have big problem in near future when we completely switch our execution from PDS to SP3D.
Do we have any updates on this as last message was posted on 11-09-2009. Its almost one year and no solution.
Messag for Navisworks development Team
1. While we generate vue files from SP3D. It also creates Xml file containing the label/annotation data which is being used along with vue. If requied we can provide xml file to investigate the team to explore it and make it compatible xml which can be readily import in to Naviswoks.
2. For Model Graphic, Since Dgn is acceptable format for Navisworks & in SP3D, facility is available to export the Model data into Dgn format. So development team just need to link this graphic along with the compatible xml file.
3. Alternate solution is, Both big banners seat together and decide about common format which can be exchangable to both the review packages, which we think is tricky process but at some point of time, we hope it will be possible. Look at the simplest example of Frameworks & Tekla Products for structure modellilng. Now this is possible two way through SAT format because of their great efforts and made our life comfortable. Same way, we expect both AutoDesk and Ingr works together to find the solution.

we are facing the same challenging. Is there any update about the support of Intergraph uve format? We are also the Intergraph SPF user which has 3D model in the file format zvf. Can naviswork suppor this format?
Another possible workaround, at least for Tekla and other software is the IFC file format.
Perhaps the combination of an IFC export in SP3D and the XML file with the object data from SP3D could also be a (better) way then the DGN route, as SP3D is only capable of exporting to the old and very limited MicroStation J DGN file format.
