Generate NWD from RVM with PML

It is necessary to know for PDMS Admin how to convert RVM+ATT to NWD format.


Both files FileName.RVM and FileName.ATT should be placed in the same folder, Navisworks will combine them while generating.

For this purpose we have to install Autodesk Navisworks(not Freedom) and command from PDMS ComanLine:
SYSCOM |  “C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Navisworks Manage 2015\roamer.exe” -nwd “C:\PDMS\..\…\FileName.nwd” “C:\PDMS\..\…\FileName.RVM”|

To convert NWD to lover version use this code:

SYSCOM |  “C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Navisworks Manage 2015\roamer.exe” /i “C:\PDMS\..\…\FileNameOriginal.nwd” /of “C:\PDMS\..\…\FileNameLoverVersion.nwd” /version 2014

More Navisworks arguments here

It should be mentioned, that Navisworks use file color.txt to map colors from RVM,
you may configure color dependence here:
…\Application Data\Roaming\NavisWorks 2013\rvm\colors.txt(c:\Program Files\Autodesk\Navisworks Manage 2015\rvm\)
