The nwd file extension is associated with NavisWorks.

NaviWorks Publisher creates compressed and secure NavisWorks *.nwd review files that are faithful to the original native 3D data from which they are created.

An nwd file is a snapshot of your nwf file at the time of Publishing. It saves all the geometry, overrides, transforms, viewpoints, clash data, everything. Once saved, you can not go back to NWF.

These *.nwd files are very small, as they compress the CAD data by up to 80% of the original size.

To publish a NWD snapshot use the Output TabPublishNWD.

NWD format is not backwards compatible, which means you cannot open newer version of an .nwd file in older NavisWorks program. However NavisWorks is able to save to two previous versions of the format.
