Navisworks Unit Conversion

Status: Gathering Support
by Collaborator petestrycharske on ‎03-06-2013 11:28 AM


   Not really sure this is a FDS idea, per se, but it would be really nice if the units from Inventor, ACAD, Revit, whatever, came into Navisworks with the correct units.  For example, I do quite a bit of Inventor modeling and then create a factory asset.  Once I brink an Inventor asset of factory layout into Navisworks, the units become cm (centimeters).  This just seems unnecessarily confusing and could save time checking the scale of appended objects.  Let me know if anyone has any questions and have a fantastic day!

Adaptive mirror command

Hello there,

i can´t quite place it yet but i would like to have the option to

have a mirrored object update as soon as the source for this

object changes.


I´m doing shelves and until now i do a single lane and mirror it.

As soon as a value changes in the source object, i have to delete

the mirrorde one and do it aknew.


Would be a nifty little feature.



Kind regards

Connector capability

Hello there,


working with assets i encountered a problem.

When doin an array of Assets i noticed the fact

connectors do connect but fail to update when

the origiinating object of the array change.


I can bypass this by trying to move the object,

for it can´t be moved because it´s fixed but to

simply try to move it is enough to get Inventor

to update the asset to the object it´s connected



With very simple objects this is not necessary,

but with the objects i created this tends to happen.



Can this be fixed with an update? Seems like a

minor change to me.


Kind regards

When we authorize an assembly asset we can manipulate only assembly parameters (Key Parameters Window).

I need to manipulate parts and subassembly parameters too.


Often when we create assembly using Top-Down process, we manage this assembly by skeleton or main multibody part, which consist all main parameters of an assembly. There are no ways by manipulate them from assembly parameters.


Best regards,

Konstantin Biktimirov

IF I am not snapping to a DWG or to a grid - I ALWAYS want to move my asset immediately after placement.  I have to go and select reposition.  Why not just have the reposition triad be the placement triad?
