NWC file extension - NavisWorks cache data

File type specification:

3d graphics, CAD-CAM-CAE file type icon 3d graphics, CAD-CAM-CAE file type

The nwc file extension is used for a temporary cache format used by NavisWorks software, such as JetStream Roamer (also known simply as NavisWorks), a program that was meant to complement other CAD, like AutoCAD or Microstation. The company was acquired by AutoDesk in 2007 and the software was probably incorporated into the company software portfolio.

NWC is one of the proprietary formats used by NavisWorks. An .nwc file contains cache data generated whenever a CAD file is imported to NavisWorks into a NWF project file. They are used for performance reasons and speed up the loading of models.
