Autodesk Navisworks supports viewing Bentley AutoPLANT objects. However there are some commons issues that many AutoPLANT users encounter that can be corrected using the following solutions. If the follow does not correct the issues with Autodesk Navisworks please contact Autodesk technical support.

Navisworks has an option to view DWG drawings using a file reader mode which opens the file as if it was an older version of AutoCAD. If a newer version of the AutoPLANT object enabler is installed and the file reader is set to read as an older version of AutoCAD Navisworks will not use the object enabler. Set the file reader version to a newer version of AutoCAD to use the object enabler.
