Hi Jørgen, if you can export the model properties then you should be able to use the same technique. I'm not familiar with the Openplant interface but see if it has a tool similar to the "Open Data Group Explorer"

Navisworks has long been a place to aggregate models and data into one place for advanced design review and clash detection. One of the key ways to get value from Navisworks is ensuring as many object properties are included in the model as possible. This blog explains the process to... Continue reading

One of the main uses for laser scanning in construction has been checking your 3D CAD and BIM against the real world situation, to check some refurbishment work will fit or the next trade can install their HVAC run rather than turn up onsite and not be able to work.... Continue reading

You only need to do fancy renderings to win bids right? Show off to the client how their shiny new project is going to look? A common misconception about rendering is that it's a way to get a computer generated model as close to the real thing as possible, and... Continue reading

I can't believe #AU2016 is just around the corner! Partly because it's a couple of weeks earlier, partly just because construction at Autodesk has exploded this year and we haven't had much time to stop! To give you an idea of how important construction is to us here, here's a... Continue reading

Hi Saad, Some of this is likely to be due to how Navisworks stores the data very efficiently so the Excel spreadsheet may be larger than the Navisworks files. However I have passed the concern onto development to see if there's anything we can do to improve this.
As a rule of thumb yes they should be, as the model viewing is using a different core this should improve performance too as well as ensuring everyone is on the latest files.
Hi Robert, This is inbuilt for 2016, no need for a separate app
Hi Jim, Hopefully support have now been in touch
Hi Sherif, Yes as long as you get the ODBC driver and have a suitable string to query the data

Interoperability in the software used for project design and construction is vital to the collaborative process required by the AEC industry. More than that, interoperability is good business for AEC firms and asset owners. Our recent agreement with Trimble to increase interoperability by exchanging APIs and developer tools is one...
