Autodesk Navisworks 2010 Service Pack 1 [Updates]

...and a little something special for my BIM friends, especially the contractors out there who use Navisworks for Clash Detection. If you're an architect and dont' have it in your budget to spend $10,000 for Navisworks Manage, consider downloading Navisworks Freedom. It's free and you can export a Revit model as a DWF file and do a walkthrough in Freedom. While you're using the free version, the contractors are happily spending $10,000 to be able to find all of the clashes on the model converted from CAD so they can send you lots and lots of RFIs to keep you busy in their DC (Documents Construction) phase of the project.

Maybe all of this will change in 10 or 20 years, but in the meantime, I think this update is for Contractors and Subcontractors.

Here are a few of the items that the Service Pack 1 improved:

Clash Detective. Camera now transitions more smoothly between clash results.

Object Animation.When adding a keyframe to the end of an animation the object movement now remains consistent.

Comments window. TheID column in the Comments window is now labeled Comment ID.

Hyperlinks and Smart Tags. Autodesk Navisworks now remembers Hyperlinks and SmartTags visibility settings between sessions. New Show Hyperlinks and Show SmartTags options have been added to the Options Editor (Interface node).

Sectioning. The section bar slider now maintains correct settings when user switches between viewpoints.

Collaboration. When using the collaborate function all window states now remain consistent.

AutoCAD Interoperability.

AutoCAD elements are now correctly displayed on the Properties tab of the Selection Tree window.
Installing Autodesk Navisworks 2010 no longer causes issues with AutoCAD VBA customizations.

Inventor Interoperability.

You can now view Inventor 'surface models' in Autodesk Navisworks.
IFC Interoperability. Improved support for IFC 2X2 files.
Missing components and misplaced Geometry issues are now resolved.

Revit Interoperability.

Structural usage text designated in Revit is now displayed in Autodesk Navisworks.
Window and door openings are now supported when exporting NWC files from Revit.
Revit models modelled in mm now appear the correct size in Autodesk Naviswork
