    Hi Marcel,

    Thanks for sharing your issue. The Navisworks Beta doesn't have an exact limitation because it's a combination of factors that determine how large a file your computer can process, such as your GPU, RAM and complexity/file size.

    One suggestion would be to try to edit the section box within Navisworks prior to converting to VR to reduce the amount of geometry that is brought in and make sure you are running the latest version of Prospect. This should improve the conversion time into VR. 

    Alternatively, you can also share the file with us by sending a wetransfer or dropbox link to support@irisvr.com, where we can take the file and replicate the process at one of our computers to check for any other potential issues.

    Best,

    Hi Ailyn,

     

    Specs are: 32GB Ram, Gpu is a 1080ti. The nwd file is 230MB in size. Program Version is 2.3.2.

    In my experience, the IrisVR exporter does somehow ignore the section box. See this screenshot. I have only a few objects visible, but it will still calculate for hours and then bring up an error message.

    I cannot share the file because of confidentiality.

     

    Edit: It works now with the new version 2.4.3!

    And the conversion time is also good.

    Hi, I get a lot of flickering in the Navisworks models once in IrisVR, is there a way to stop this? Same with any FBX I use. From Revit it works perfect with no issues.

    Hi Adam,

    The flickering might be happening due to Z-fighting between geometry. Have you tried running the file with and without the Z-fighting settings turned on? This should help reduce that. 

    Here is a quick reference to where you can adjust these settings for Prospect: https://help.irisvr.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001732928-Z-fighting-Why-is-my-model-flashing-in-VR-

    All the best,

    Hi Ailyn, I tried to use the settings you suggested, but this did not help my model. However, I discovered if I saved my Navisworks file as a nwd instead of a nwc/nwf, this models flickering is not present anymore.
