Naviswork full hierarchy + metadata

Hi everyone,

i need to export the whole hierarchy from Naviswork but the Datasmith plugin only takes geometries in consideration. All my relevant metadatas is stored inside grouping elements and i have no way to link them to the Datasmith scene…

Is it possible to export the whole hierarchy with data (as empty actors in Datasmith Scene) or at least merge metadatas from parent grouping elements into geometries?

oh, this would be awesome.

I’m trying to create a kind of … proof of concept where I’m also trying to import from Navisworks, but it has been a very error prone process, and I’d love more options available on the Export side of things, before I try to cram so much down Unreal’s throat.

If the metadata could be cooked down to the geo like you’re saying, it would be easier to reason about when trying to determine how to efficiently do replacements, edits, remeshing, etc in visual dataprep.

Great question, I hope some folks have a great answer. haha.
