Publish a Model to the Viewer (From Navisworks)
Projects can be published to the online viewer directly from Navisworks without having to go through the process of exporting the IFC, sending it to the appropriate person and uploading it to the viewer.
Publishing a new model
Once the model is opened in Navisworks and the appropriate hub and project are selected in BIM Track, the «Publish» button will appear in the BIM Track section of the Navisworks Ribbon.
Click on the «Publish» button and the following window will open.
Model name: This is the name the model will have in the viewer.
Associated discipline(s): In this drop-down menu, it is possible to select the discipline that will be assigned to the model that's about to be published.
Create model: If the viewer contains a folder in the project tree selection, it will be possible to choose which folder the model will be added to.
Clicking on the "Publish" button will then publish the model to BIM Track.
Publishing a revision
Append a new revision to an existing model: If the model is a revision of an existing one in the viewer it is important to select this section of the window and select the correct model the revision needs to be added to.
Clicking on "Publish" will then publish the model revision to BIM Track.
Scheduling a model to automatically be published
Clicking on thebutton at the top of the dialog box will open the «Create Publish Schedule» dialog box. Give the task a name, select the frequency needed for this publication to take place and select the time conditions. In the screenshot below, the model is scheduled to be published at the end of each week, every Friday at 4:59 pm. Clicking on the Save button will create this automated task. Afterward, a window prompt will appear mentioning that the task was successfully created.
