Revit & Navisworks: Work simultaneously in both of them

If  a user is working with Revit and Navisworks at the same time (to do advanced clashing detection for example), often he will export a NWC from Revit and use the NWC in Navisworks.

But when you try to export the NWC when it is already in use by the Navisworks project you will get a read-only error:

Navis-error

The solution is to check a Navisworks option that will close the NWC after the file has been read into the project instead of keeping the file open:

Navis-GO

Navis-Close
