Datakit has launched a new converter that is dedicated to NavisWorks. This converter allows you to import a project designed with NavisWorks either to view it or to rely on its data to go further in the operational management of a building, a factory, or any other study currently being done. It meets the needs of construction professionals to carry out dimensioning computations and determine the best possible construction method and, generally, all stakeholders who wish to monitor a project.
According to Datakit, NavisWorks underlines the path of interoperability across design, building information modeling, and project management.
With its converter, you will import a NavisWorks project to view it in your available software. You will retrieve a complete scene in an instant and be able to leverage design data, geometry, colors, and textures, as well as components (with their exact placements in the project) and the appropriate units of measurement regardless of the origin of the project. All of this can be done without requiring a NavisWorks license. The converter also takes into account the way NavisWorks manages compression and respects instantiation and tessellation features.
Datakit completes its range of data converters dedicated to Autodesk software solutions with a native NavisWorks data reading tool and strengthens its presence as an interoperability facilitator with BIM professionals and their partners. Datakit has been offering converters for Autodesk REVIT BIM software or the IFC (Industry Foundation Classes) format for several years and guarantees compatibility with the latest versions of software products but also with their previous versions.
Version V2023.2 of Datakit converters has been delivered at the beginning of April, it will include performance optimizations, particularly for BIM formats.
