Bug Navisworks exports has just one big document and no sub items.

    I tried to export a few files from navisworks to reflect.
    I found that the project is just one big mass and it has no object hierarchy or sub items in it.
    So the filter is of no use and it has only one item.
    Is this a bug or limited functionality of the exporter?

    Hi ChangSoft,

    How did you export the files? If you used the Selection export from Navisworks, indeed it will appear as a single mesh in the viewer, that's a known issue (it will appear fine if you import it in the Unity editor though). However, if you used the Document export from Navisworks it should appear correctly divided, both in the viewer and in the Unity Editor, see image attached.

    The model selection behavior in the viewer also depends on how the object was initially created in the design tool, before it was imported into Navisworks: if it was modelled as a group or mesh it will be displayed that way in the Reflect Viewer.

    I'm having the same issue with Navisworks. My model has 1000+ meshes and a TimeLiner. Neither the hierarchy or the TimeLiner is shown in the Reflect Review. I exported it as a document.
