First Step: Download the Navisworks Add-In

Our custom Navisworks add-in creates a fast, simple workflow to preview your models in VR and upload them to your InsiteVR projects. It is compatible with Navisworks Manage 2018 and 2019.

Before you get started, make sure you download and install the desktop app. During installation, make sure “InsiteVR for Navisworks” is checked on the “Select Components” screen. This will automatically install the add-in.

IMPORTANT: Make sure Navisworks is closed before you install. 

Second Step: Export Your Model

In Navisworks, open the project you want to review in VR. On the top ribbon bar click the "InsiteVR" tab and then click Export.

Next your project will open in InsiteVR. At this time you may view your project in VR for solo review. To begin adding annotations and scheduling multi-user VR review meetings in your model you will need to upload it to InisteVR.

Click Upload to InsiteVR on the top left. Then proceed to upload to an existing project or make a new project.
