The following steps will show you how to set up an Export configuration to export your model data to Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
Go to General Configuration tab in the iConstruct menu and click Export Configuration button.
Create a new Template by clicking the + button and name it.
Select an item in the background and click Refresh Properties to pull in the data
Select Export Type from the drop-down menu.
Define if you want to export the data from the Item or Group level or both.
Disable Recursion: When disabled will process selected paths only. If not selected, it will process items under and inside the selected items in the tree.
Force text: Force to text ignores the ‘data type’ of the property in Navisworks and exports everything as ‘Text’. This can fix some issues where Navisworks reports a property as one type and then some items have that property as another type.
Ignore items within inserts: Disregards matching data if below insert or block level.
Define a location you want to save the export.
Select the properties you want to export by selecting the tab or individual item.
Save the template. Run the configuration directly or Close the dialogue if you choose to run the template later.
