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 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

Here is how it works
