Importing DWF files exported from Navisworks

I have exported a 3D DWF file from a combined Navisworks file, but get an error when I try to do a model take-off in QTO:

 

Error occurs while start model takeoff. The Model Sheet may Collapse. Can someone help? I have tried re-exporting the DWF a few times and get same error.

 

thanks

Me too. I am confused. I rejected QTO as part of our BIM plan 2 years ago. I thought they'd have caught up by now. Seems not. Autodesk why have you marketed us that QTO has BIM capability? What is the rest of the story?

Seems to work with Revit.

 

How come you can get the names of everything but you can't get the data?

Hi

 

The movie on Youtube is for files exported from Revit whch isnt a problem. The issue is when you have a combined model in Navisworks - structure, architecture, MEP that ypu want to do a full take-off from this.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks
