The distributable NWC file exporter enables project teams using Autodesk® Naviswork® software to generate whole-project models for simulation and analysis.
Project team members can generate the optimized NWC file directly from their design applications. This capability is provided without necessitating a licensed seat of Autodesk Navisworks 2011 software on the same machine.
The NWC exporter works with a range of products, including the AutoCAD®-based and Revit®-based Autodesk products, as well as Autodesk® 3ds Max®, Bentley MicroStation®, and Graphisoft ArchiCAD® software. The NWC file format supports transfer of both object geometry and associated metadata from the design applications into Autodesk Navisworks 2011 software.
Some customers experience "rips", "tears" or another anomaly in the model when using the Render or Export Rendered Image functionality.
It should also be noted that the problem does not go away, once it has started. Even if the file is closed and renewed attempts are made.
This may be due to missing geometry when rendering large models, particularly models with a very large ground plane or large 3D space. This is a known issue and related to the rendering engine used in Navisworks.
Here's the one workaround that seems to have resolved the majority of cases. Improve your Render performance by hiding geometry (CTRL-H) that is unused in your view or unrelated.

Our licensing team has posted two new updates to the product support site.
This Hotfix repairs a problem that occurs during the side-by-side installation of two different licensing products. During the installation of stand-alone licensing products with previously installed network licensing products, an error occurs indicating that the installation failed.
You can find the Hotfix and additional information here
You configured a machine to be a network license server and then installed an Autodesk product on the same machine. When you launch the product, it tries to check out a network license and fails.
On Windows, the FLEXnet Finder dialog displays and, when dismissed, is followed by a license error dialog displaying the error code [-15.570.36]. In the Mac OS, a license error dialog displays the same error code but it does not display a FLEXnet Finder dialog.
This happens on all operating systems where an IPv6 stack is installed.
You can find the solution and additional information here.
Please let us know should the above solutions not resolve stated issues for you.

Some users have come across the "adlmPITSetProductInformation failed" during the installation of one of Autodesk's 2010 based products.
The message "adlmPITRemoveProductInformation failed" indicates a possible corruption in the "ProductInformation.pit" file. The solution to this problem is to manually remove the file and to repeat the installation process.
You can find the "ProductInformation.pit" in the following location:
Microsoft Windows XP
C:\Documents and settings\All Users\Application Data\Autodesk\ADLM\ProductInformation.pit
Microsoft Windows Vista
Please let us know should this solution not resolve this particular issue for you.
When you try to install Navisworks, the installer lists Navisworks as already being installed, even though it is not. As a result, you cannot proceed and install Navisworks.
This problem can occur with Navisworks Manage 2010, Navisworks Manage 2009, Navisworks Review 2010, Navisworks Review 2009, Navisworks Simulate 2010 and Navisworks Simulate 2009.
An incomplete uninstall can sometimes leave residual registry keys that may cause the Navisworks installer to detect incorrectly that Navisworks has already been installed.
In order to resolve this issue, you must remove the following key from the Windows Registry:
Once completed, you can proceed with the installation.
Note: Problems caused by improperly editing the Windows Registry could render your computer operating system unusable. Microsoft provides a wealth of critical information that you need to know about the registry in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.
Please let us know should you come across this issue and be unable to resolve it.
Language Packs are now available for download for Navisworks Manage 2010, Navisworks Simulate 2010, Navisworks Review 2010 and Navisworks Freedom 2010.
The following languages are offered as part of the updates:
Please send us any comments, feedback or suggestions you may have.
Users of Autodesk Navisworks 2010 may have noticed that window elements do not export correctly from Revit Architecture 2010 and Revit MEP 2010.
It appears that surfaces are exported without openings, windows display opaque and bounding boxes are also making their way across unforeseen. Additionally, three small boxes are created next to the wall - without ever being in the original drawing in the first place.
Root cause to all of this seems to be that non visible, yet present entities, are included.
The issue affects Autodesk Navisworks Manage 2010, Autodesk Navisworks Review 2010, Autodesk Navisworks Simulate 2010 and Autodesk Navisworks Freedom 2010.
The Autodesk Navisworks team has created a HotFix to address this particular problem. Users can download the HotFix here.
Please send us any comments, feedback or suggestions you may have.
Users may experience difficulties when attempting to open Navisworks 2010 files in earlier versions of the product.
At this point, users will be presented with a message when a model from a future version is loaded into a previous version. The message could match the one shown here or may be similar.
We recommend the following workaround to our customers:
You should load the model in the version it came from or ask the sender of the file to go to "File > Save As" and save the file as an earlier version of the file.
Note: The problem mainly occurs with NWD files but can occur with NWF and NWC files.
Please share any feedback or comments you may have.
