I just received a new machine and I am having issues with my pipelines appearing as wireframe in Navisworks. I am running AutoCAD 2017, AutoPlant 188.8.131.52 and Navisworks Manage 2018. I also have Object Enabler V8i for AutoCAD 184.108.40.206. I have looked online and it was suggest to uncheck "use ADT standard configuration" which I have done. Any other suggestions?
Thank you for the concern. Please check with the below given changes need to be carried in Option Editor in NavisWorks.
Once the above changes done please reopen NavisWorks and open model to view It.

Thank you for the update. I will investigate at my end and get back to you soon.
08.11.14.124 is for AutoCAD 2016 and 2017 only. You are using NavisWorks 2018 so Object enabler for AutoCAD 2018 is required.
You can download Object enabler 8.11.15.01 version for AutoCAD 2018 from our fulfillment center
or got to this wiki page which has direct link for downloading it.
I hope this information will be useful. Please let me know if you need additional help on this topic or if you have other concerns/questions.

Hello, I am using AutoCAD 2017, just my Navisworks is 2018.
It appears I am missing some sort of object enabler based on the scene statistics in Navisworks
This is the object enabler I have
Do you know which object enablers I am missing?
AutoPLANT Modeler 220.127.116.11 Supports AutoCAD 2016/2017, AutoPLANT Object Enabler 18.104.22.168 is for AutoCAD 2016/2017 only, ProSteel Object Enabler 22.214.171.124 is for AutoCAD 2016/2017 only
You have all Object Enablers for AutoCAD 2016 and 2017 only, so it is clear why NavisWorks 2018 is not showing data correctly.
Try by installing AutoPLANT Object Enabler 8.11.15.01, which supports AutoCAD 2018. With this Object Enabler you should be able to open AutoPLANT models in NavisWorks and see all objects.I have marked with yellow color Object Enabler version which is supports AutoCAD 2018, check my previous answer and fallow link where you can download this Object Enabler.Regards, Kestutis Mitkus
