To generate the 360 renderings in your Naviswork model with the correct view, you can adjust the height of the camera with the sheet view.

Same as with the 360 photos that you capture on-site, you can adjust the height of the camera for the 360 viewpoints in the 3D model in Autodesk® Navisworks® to get the views you are looking for. Set the camera to either eye-height for the best walkthrough experience or to a special perspective, e.g., above the ceiling, to get a special view of the pipes and vents.

Always make sure you have correctly installed the most recent plugin version in your Naviswork environment.

Note: In order to be able to later export the 360 views from Autodesk® Navisworks® to HoloBuilder, you will need to have edit permissions on the related HoloBuilder project, e.g. at least a Project Editor role, and the project needs to have an active license on HoloBuilder.

The height for your 360 views gets specified while defining the sheet views.

Note: Please follow the detailed instructions on how to create a sheet view for the HoloBuilder plug-in in Autodesk® Navisworks® to learn the basics of creating new sheet views.

The height on which the 360 views will be "captured" is specified by the 'Z' value on the plane set up for the sheet view.

  1. In the Sectioning Tools, when transforming the sheet view, open the transformation options by clicking on the little arrow next to "Transform".

  2. Specify the heights on 'Z' value for the Position.

The height can be checked by generating a test 360 views from the HoloBuilder plug-in menu for the newly generated sheet view.
