What is nwf file? How to open nwf files?
File type specification:
The nwf file extension is used for a 3D model 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.
NWF is one of the proprietary formats used by NavisWorks. An nwf file contains links to the original native files together with Autodesk Navisworks-specific data, such as review markups. No model geometry is saved with this file format; this makes NWF format considerably smaller in size than an NWD format.
NWF format is not backwards compatible, which means you cannot open newer version of an .nwf file in older NavisWorks program. However NavisWorks is able to save to two previous versions of the format.
The default software associated to nwf file type:
Company or developer:
Autodesk NavisWorks is project review software for 3D coordination, 4D planning, photorealistic visualization, dynamic simulation, and accurate analysis. With Autodesk Navisworks project review software, you can collaborate, coordinate, and communicate more effectively to reduce problems during design and construction.
