Create a merged .nwf file using IFCs from Bimsync
In order to be able to use the BCF viewpoints from your Bimsync project in the Bimsync plugin, you need a merged NavisWorks file containing the IFCs from Bimsync.
Download the IFC models you want to merge following the steps above.
Open one of the files you have downloaded in NavisWorks.
Merge more models from the same project into the NavisWorks model using “Append”.
Once you have all the files you want to merge appended, save the file as a .nwf file.
Save the file in the same folder as your downloaded IFC files.
Use this merged file when viewing BCF viewpoints in Navisworks.
You can also use this merged file for running collision tests in NavisWorks.
