How to Change Units in Navisworks?

Navisworks is an amazing application for bein able to federate lots of different models into one project such as plumbing and piping, ventilation, structural and architectural. However different disciplines and different countries may use different units and may need to work to different decimal places.

Navisworks is no exception and allows you to choose the units you’d like to use regardless of what the native application uses.

And it’s as simple as that, you shouldn’t need to change this again. If you have customised your options such as the above, there is also an Export and Import button at the bottom so you can save your settings should you wish. This is useful for standardising the settings within your team/organisation and as a backup should you need to reinstall Navisworks.
