Property Mapping in Navisworks 2015

  • Property Mapping allows you to map the takeoff properties to the model properties for the entire item calculations.
  • It can be used by choosing the Property Mapping button available in the Item Catalog window. This feature can be used where the dimensional properties of geometry will have multiple names.
  • To nullify the global Property Mapping, a new tab Item Map Rules is added in the Item Catalog window which allows you to map the individual takeoff properties to the model properties for a particular item.
