Teresa Martin, Senior Application Specialist, Ideate, Inc. reviews the best of the new features in Navisworks 2013.

Autodesk Navisworks 2013 has some fantastic enhancements this year. Two of the best new features are native Revit support (no more exporting via NWC from Revit!) and the display of levels and grids from Revit in a scene view. Both features have been high on user’s wish lists and this year Autodesk’s Navisworks team has delivered. The grids and levels can be turned on per level or all levels and can also be ghosted on levels above or below the designated level. For Navisworks project teams whom have been struggling with this issue by making their own 3D grids in either Revit or AutoCAD, this will be a most welcome feature.

Additional features that are worth a look are as follows:
