When it comes down to ambient occlusion , lights and real time navigation through a model, Navisworks has horrible graphics and excellent navigation tools, the Infrastructure Modeler has excellent graphics but poor navigation tools.
Did anyone looked at the impressive graphics performance of Infrastructure Modeler? I can tell you that my clients have been super impressed with the look of the project , ambient occlusions and solar study tools available in IM.Just the feeling when walking around a model is incredible. When I opened up the same model in Navisworks it was like going back to the cave. Switching between headlights and scene lights did not achieve the same experience I had on IM.
Can we have a new Navisworks with a new graphics engine borrowed from IM,and a new IM with navigation tools from Navisworks pleeeease !!!!!!!

Thanks for posting.
By default Navisworks 2013 and earlier use a Navisworks specific graphics engine that is tuned for performance rather than looks. In Navisworks 2012 and later you have the option of using the common Autodesk engine that IM also uses. Go to Options -> Interface -> Display -> Graphics System. Uncheck Auto-select and select the Autodesk graphics system.
Go to Options -> Inteface -> Display -> Graphics System -> Autodesk for Autodesk graphics system specific options.
Excellent information. I wish I had the sun calendar settings in Navisworks.Maybe on the next versions.
Thanks for your response
