Import hyperlinks to Autodesk Navisworks from CSV

It’s possible to import RVM and ATT formats to generate NWD using Autodesk Navisworks. It can’t process hyperlinks with standard functionality, but…


I wrote a small plugin, to import links in CSV format, to combine with RVM and ATT data in NWD.

Just copy that folder with .dll inside to ‘D:\Program Files\Autodesk\Navisworks Manage 2017\Plugins\’ or wherever you installed your program.

This Plugin can be use also without interface (from Command Line). Here is how it can be run:
“d:\Program Files\Autodesk\Navisworks Manage 2017\Roamer.exe” -NoGui -ExecuteAddInPlugin “uImportExcelHyperLinksPlugin.IEHL” “d:\ASP.nwd”
(you need to put .CSV file in the same folder + same name as .NWD)

Here you can find samples NWD and CSV

More info about Autodesk Navisworks and CMD here

Here is how it works

  1. It looks like a good plugin.
    The plugin can not be registered in the 2017 version, unlike the introduction material.

    1. At which Navisworks version did you try? What kind of errors? You need to have folder uImportExcelHyperLinksPlugin and uImportExcelHyperLinksPlugin.dll inside it.

      1. Hello, I have used NW2021 and it did not show any errors, it just do not show in the UI as addin.
