Issues Viewer

3D Repo for Autodesk® Revit® and 3D Repo for Autodesk® Navisworks® plugins provide a convenient way of accessing and managing project issues. Issues created in 3D Repo can be accessed inside Autodesk Revit & Navisworks with the Revit and Navisworks plugins. You can comment and view messages, resources, screenshots as well as add new issues, all from within the Revit and Navisworks environments.

In this article, you will find out, in both Revit and Navisworks, how to:

  • Load Issues from 3D Repo
  • Open Issues list
  • Send Issues to 3D Repo
