Navistools Publisher for Navisworks enables you to automatically publish your CAD models to the familiar .nwd format. The Publisher is equipped with “AutoDetect” functionality that continuously monitors a designated project folder and detects when a new or modified CAD model appears and publishes it automatically to a specified location. If you prefer to publish on a given date or time, for instance over-night, then Publisher is also the tool for you. Not only is Publisher equipped with AutoDetect, it is also capable through the “Scheduler” functionality to publish on the time and date that you want. Using this functionality means that all your systems and licenses of Autodesk Navisworks stay available and you can delay the publishing action to the non-productive hours of the day. Navistools Publisher also includes the following features:
• If you use Navisworks properties during publishing, then Publisher will use these same properties as well. You can even set the properties for your Navisworks models using the Publisher , it is not necessary to activate Navisworks for that.
• To use Publisher , Navisworks only has to be installed on the system where you want to use the Publisher. Publisher uses the Navisworks engine in the background, you hardly even notice when it’s running.
• Publisher is delivered with “AutoDetect” and “Scheduler”, there are no seperate licenses required.
