Smart DWFx Exporter

Smart DWFx Exporter leverages the inbuilt Navisworks DWFx export function but gives the user a bit more control. Smart DWFx Exporter was originally intended for use with CostX – first preparing the models into a consistent format then exporting using the Smart DWFx Exporter tool in order to bring into CostX for estimation.

The tool performs 3 functions:

  • Ensures all data from the model is brought across correctly into the DWFx file
  • Formats Revit data properties to append the units as text so DWFx-compatible quantity estimation packages like CostX can make use of them.
  • Allows for a single nominated data tab to be brought across into the DWFx, purging other properties and therefore allows for a smaller file size
