NaviSet Transfer is a work-in-progress suite of plugins and maxscripts intended to help you transfer Navisworks Selection/Search Sets and Timeliner animation to 3DS Max for animation and simulation purposes. The tool is best suited for people with intermediate experience using 3D Studio Max and Navisworks. In Max, you will want to know how to set animation keys, use the renderer, and run scripts. In Navisworks, you will want to know how to work with Revit files, create sets, and use the Timeliner.
Here’s an up-to-date tutorial:
The current product includes the set transfer tools, and a time liner transfer tool. Both of which, when used together help the user to create construction/demolition animation sequences in Max using Revit models and Navisworks set data.

Within this package you will find installation instructions, the EULA, the export plugin for Navisworks 2016, 2017, & 2018, and the import script for 3D Studio Max. You will also find the beta version for the Timeliner export plugin and import script.
To use this software, it is required that you have:
- Revit 2016, 2017, or 2018
- Navisworks 2016, 2017, or 2018
- 3D Studio Max 2016, 2017, or 2018
Important: Verify that your installation of Max has a working Revit Link plugin. If you haven’t installed Revit yet, you may need to do so to get this plugin installed. If you have, and the plugin isn’t available (it should be visible under the File > Import options), you may have to uninstall and re-install Revit.
Just to be clear here: This plugin only works on Revit files. Navisworks has a wide range of files that it can work with, and DWG is often more commonly brought in, but the plugin will not work with DWG files. This is because the set transfer method relies on Revit ID numbers to work. So if everything you want to transfer sits within a Revit file, you won’t have any trouble.
