About the plugin

The Catenda Hub add-in for Autodesk® Navisworks® is the perfect tool for projects collaborating in Catenda Hub. All your issues are synchronized in real-time between Navisworks and Catenda Hub, letting you create, access, share, and communicate issues. The issue format is BCF so that the issues can be shared across any BCF enabled BIM software or platform.

This add-in allows you to visualize, create, and edit issues seamlessly from within Navisworks. You can also download and federate the IFC model stored in Catenda Hub to your local client.

Features include:

  • Access to all your Catenda projects

  • Filter and manage issues across issue boards

  • Create new issues directly from Navis Works

  • Locate issues in your Navisworks model

  • Create a new 3D view for each comment

  • Create BCF issues from clashes found using the Clash detective

  • Assign issues to other project members

  • Change issue status and other properties

New Features available in version 1.3.2:

  • Access the document library on Catenda to open any file format supported by Navisworks

  • Access all models revisions (not only latest)

  • Save your NWD file directly to Catenda

  • Consolidate viewpoints when you create a topic from a group or multiple clashes (create one viewpoint with all clashes)
