Wikis > RTV Xporter PRO - Interface Overview > RTV Xporter Pro NWC Export

You can use this export option when needing to generate .nwc files from your Revit Project.  Note that this export option will only be available when exporting Revit Views as Revit Sheets cannot be exported to NWC files.

Firstly select the required Revit Views to be exported from the Xporter Pro main interface and then click the Export button from the ribbon.

The top half of the Dialog box relate to the Export Settings required for the resulting NWC files as shown by the below image.

  • Coordinates – from the drop down list select either Shared or Project Internal.
  • Convert Element Parameters – from the drop down list select from All, Elements or None
  • Checkbox options – choose additional export settings as required by ticking appropriate check boxes
  • Views at Level Settings – if you want to create additional 3D views at each level when exporting to NWC files tick the checkbox – otherwise leave unticked.
  • Source 3D view – from the drop down list select the required 3D view from your Revit Project as the source view
  • View Template – select a view template from the drop down list to be used if required when generating the 3D views – otherwise leave blank if you do not want to apply a view template
  • View Level Selector – click the selection button to define which project levels you want to generate 3D views for when exporting including the Upper and Lower limit Offsets for each level.  This will be used to generate the 3D Section box extents for each level view.
  • View Name Template – select from the list of available Revit Parameters to use for your View naming convention when exporting.  You can add additional characters by typing them in between parameter codes manually if required.
  • NWD Settings – click the button and browse to your Navisworks Roamer.exe application and then tick the box to allow creation of NWD files

The lower portion of the Dialog box determines the File naming, export location file format settings and file upload settings for the exported files as shown by below example.

General Tab

  • Folder Name Format panel – provide the means to define your Export folder output location and naming convention. Use the Format codes list to create the desired combination for the folder name or use the browse button to navigate to an existing folder location. If you want to use the same output folder for all file types then tick the checkbox below.
  • File Naming Format – provide the means to determine your file naming convention. Use the Format codes list to create the desired combination for the file name template (a sample preview is given as a guide). If you want to use the same file naming syntax for all file format types then tick the checkbox below.
  • Date Format – Use the date format options to select the required date format and date separator.
  • Export Formats Panel – is where you select the required output formats by checking the required boxes
  • Invalid Characters – if your file naming involves invalid characters tick the box for Xporter Pro to check and it will replace with the value entered such as a hyphen, dot, or underscore.
  • Publish Panel – if you want the resulting exported files to be automatically uploaded to an FTP or FileShare site then tick the box and configure the FTP settings on the FTP tab etc.
  • Create CSV Transmittal panel – provides the means to generate a CSV file to be used for aconex uploads.  Click the Config button to configure which Revit parameters you want to use as Export parameters / columns in the resulting CSV file.  Note that Xporter Pro will not actually perform the aconex upload.
  • Export Configuration Settings panel – provides the means for you to save your selected export configuration settings to an .xml including folder and file naming conventions so that you can load the .xml file back again at a later date with all the settings.
