Publish a New Version of a Model


To publish a new version of a model that has already been published to Procore. 


Publishing a new version of a model to Procore is necessary when any changing any of the published model geometry, such as altering sectioning. If you only need to edit information for a model, you can edit it in the Models tool. See Edit Information for a Model

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' permissions to the Models tool.
    • 'Read Only' or higher permissions to the Drawings tool to add and map 2D drawings to the model.
  • Additional Information:
    • The file you want to publish from Navisworks® must be a NWD or NWF file.
    • Individual files larger than 2GB cannot be published to Procore. Laser scans can drastically increase the size of files, so you will need to remove scans if they make a file larger than 2GB. 
    • If you are using sectioning to publish specific areas or views of your model in Navisworks®, make sure to use Section Boxes. Section Planes are not currently respected and will not be published to Procore. See Add a Section Box to a Model.
    • If you want to publish a new version of a model that was previously published to the Models tool, see Publish a New Version of a Model.
