    There may be a time when you have to link a file from Navisworks and use it as a reference for a Revit model.

    Obtain a file containing the model created using Revit or other CAD software. Navisworks supports many file formats.

    In Navisworks, do the following: Open the CAD file.

    In Revit, link to the NWD file as follows:

    Click Insert tab – select Link panel, then Coordination Model.

    In the Coordination Model dialog, click Add. Navigate to the target NWD, select it and click Open, then click OK.  The linked model displays in the currently active view.
