Navisworks Connector (⚒️alpha) - Available from Manager

We’re stoked to add Navisworks to the Speckle family allowing you to share and work with even more of your AEC data, and it’s available in alpha :tada:!

This send-only connector is developed and supported in-house and is available for installation through the Manager.

The connector supports basic 3D geometry node conversions from Navisworks Manage versions 2020-23, with additional conversions on the immediate roadmap:

  • Unit support,
  • full property translation, and
  • correct Y-Z orientation.

Also, on the imminent feature support agenda:

  • Line-work
  • Origin translation
  • Custom overrides support (colour, transparency, location)
  • Clash-reports
  • Comments
  • Views

We have many ideas for further supporting your AEC workflows. To focus our efforts, we’re extremely keen to hear how you’d like to use your Navisworks data within your Speckle portfolio. The best place to let us know is here on the Community forum.

Note: Check out the repo for constant development and updates; the codebase of an alpha connector is by its nature in flux; code-fix contributions may be premature.


Changes on deck for the next alpha release:

:ballot_box_with_check: Now converts SavedStream specifying Searches and SelectionSets
:ballot_box_with_check: Better Object Conversion reporting
:ballot_box_with_check: Correct Units conversion
:ballot_box_with_check: Non-geometric nodes conversion
:ballot_box_with_check: Full property translation and addition

:x: I have tracked the cause of the Y/Z orientation bug, but fix isn’t ready yet.

Now available in Manager as a release candidate version 2.11.0-rc1.


:tada: We’re starting the year off with a :boom:. Watch this tutorial by @jonathon and see Navisworks connector in action! :point_down:


A post was split to a new topic: Is it mandatory that Connectors are always installed as Plugins in their specific Apps?

The XY orientation issue is fixed and will hit the manager in 2.11-rc4!
