Navigating the Navisworks Navigator in AutoCAD 2010

Entering NWNAVIGATOR at the command line gives the dreaded "Unknown Command" message. This should display a Navisworks viewer inside AutoCAD (or vertical) after you install the Navisworks plug-in.

Here are two reasons the Navigator may not be displayed.

  1. AutoCAD 2010 does not ship with the VBA utility which is needed by the Navigator to function. To download and install the VBA utility review my prior post: http://avatechsupport.blogspot.com/2009/04/why-isnt-my-vba-installed-with-autdesk.html
  2. The plug-in that installs the Navigator is not supported on a 64-bit system and just won't install/run. Autodesk is aware of this issue.

If you need any help on this or any other issue call the Avatech National Support Center at 800-808-7645. Remember our contract holders come first and first time callers after that. If you’d like to purchase a support contract we can help with that too!.
