Transparent object in Navisworks

I have created some boxes in 3D model for access area, make it in different layer with 70% transparency. Shaded view of that model is showing as transparent object but when I load it in Navisworks it is showing as solid object.

What's the process to make transparent object in Navisworks?

Steps to follow is ;

 

 Select the item

 Right click 

 Select Override Item

 Select Override Transparency

 Set the Transparency you want from the window.

Override item -> Override transparency.  With a little forethought for layer naming or other identifiers this can be automated using the appearance profiler.
