I’m trying to learn Navisworks. My first major roadblock is bringing the data from Civil 3D into Navisworks. In order for it to show properly you have to either install the Civil 3D Object Enablers from the Autodesk Website or if you are on a 64-bit machine use the 32 bit version of Navisworks Manage. I’m not sure which one fixed my problems first so I’d try opening the dwg in the 32 bit version first, it that doesn’t work install the Object Enablers. There also is a NWDOUT command that is available after installing Navisworks Manage from within Civil 3D.

If your interested in learning more about Civil 3D and Navisworks check out this upcoming AutoCAD Civil 3D Webcast: Coordinated Design, Analysis, and Visualization with AutoCAD Civil 3D and Navisworks on August 14.

Also check out the NWNAVIGATOR command in Civil 3D. It uses Navisworks’ engine to show the model in Civil 3D and it appears to work better than Object Viewer.
