What is a Procore plugin and what is it used for?


A plugin is a software component that is installed onto your computer to add a feature into an existing application. Procore offers two Building Information Modelling (BIM) plugins to use in programmes such as Autodesk® Navisworks®, Revit® and AutoCAD®. See Procore BIM Plugins. After the plugins are installed, the respective programme will have a 'Procore' tab where you can perform tasks designed to streamline your BIM workflows.

There are two separate installers described below:

VDC Plugin for Co-ordination Issues, Models and Locations

Allows you to create and manage co-ordination issues directly in Navisworks®, publish models from Navisworks® for use on mobile and web viewers and publish grid information from Revit® to leverage 2D Views on iOS. You can also streamline your project locations setup by exporting Levels and Rooms directly out of Revit® to Locations in Procore. 


  • You must have the Co-ordination Issues or Models tools in Procore to use the plugin for Navisworks® or 2D Views feature.
  • You must have Admin permissions to the project's Admin tool in order to export locations from Revit®. 

Documents Plugin for Autodesk®

Allows you to export content directly from AutoCAD® or Revit® to the Documents tool in Procore, open and append Procore documents into Navisworks® and save files to the Documents tool in Procore.

Note: You must have access to a project's Documents tool in Procore. 


  • The Procore plugins can only be used on Windows computers and must be installed on the same computer that you have Navisworks®, Revit® or AutoCAD® installed.
