Export specific attributes to .ATT (Navisworks)

Usually admins don’t have problems with export to .ATT of a small models or
if they have not demanding customer.


But if you have huge models, the export process will take sometimes more then 6 hours+/-. Or if your customer will ask you to output only certain attributes or maybe they need other description in Autodesk Navisworks.

JAK and I designed a small tool to generate really easy procedure for export.
Here is the folder, you need to copy it to PMLLIB\design folder + run in command line:

show !!cdxattdumpSel
show !!uDampAttEdit

cdxattdumpSel – form to export ATT
uDampAttEdit – form to select what Attributes you need

Thanks to JAK
