Is it possible to export a Navisworks native file from the Mac Version of ArchiCAD?

Hi all, 

Does anyone know if it is possible to export a native Navisworks file from the Mac version of ArchiCAD? 

I have downloaded the free AC25 plug in from BIMwings (https://bimwings.com/shop/) but it doesn't seem to work on my Mac. 

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. 

Cheers,

Ben

Navisworks can import and read IFC. Why not just skip the nwc? I assume your BIM manager requires you to export nwc for clash detection?

Also, you still need windows to use navisworks. Time to get a windows if that’s your workflow.

The Help file of the latest Navisworks version (v2024) states that the Navisworks Exporter for Archicad was last available for Archicad 19, so it has been discontinued for a while:
