    How to get Navisworks clashes into Revit

    Been a while since I actually asked a question here I was clueless about, so here goes


    In the past I have always worked with a BCF file (usually from Solibri) to get my clashed into Revit to find and fix them.

    In this case I got a Navisworks (.nwd) file. Never used that before and after installing Navisworks Freedom and the trial of Manage I found that there are A LOT of clashes in the file and I don't feel anything has been filtered.

    Google tells me I can use Switchback to get clashes into Revit and tells me I need to do this Add-Ins tab External Tools Navisworks SwitchBack but there is nothing there.

    So basically 2 questions.

    1. what is the workflow between Navisworks and Revit to get clashes fixed?
    2. how do I get that Switchback thing to work?

    I know you like Dynamo, so you can make your own script for it

      You might want to install the Autodesk_Navisworks_Exporters_2022_Win_64bit_dlm.s fx

      Bit weird as I seem to recall if you install Revit and then Navisworks that the install did detect the Revit and installed the switchback as well, could be my memory.

      The filtering in the list of clashes not being there is just yuk, there is an option to Group by element that greatly reduces the complexity of the list. (Look at the clash, decide if element 1 or 2 is the ' real' problem, group by that, then Navis makes 1 group of all the clashes involving that element.)

        Had to go looking for the Navisworks exporters but got them in the end and now hab Switchback in my Revit install, so thanx.
        Not gonna bother with the filtering, not my job to do, so gonna give that back to the people that do the coordination.

            If you want to do it quick and dirty, just let them make a PDF with the sorted clashes, with the element id in the document, so you can find it in Revit. Not a very nice workflow but it will get the job done.
