Due to a platform requirement change that happened in the third-party dependency HOOPS is relying on for the ODA - Revit and AutoCAD/DWG Readers, the HOOPS 2022 SP1 minimum requirements on Linux have changed.

New Format: Autodesk Navisworks

HOOPS Exchange 2022 SP1 is introducing the support of the Autodesk Navisworks NWD format as a beta version.

This new reader will become officially supported later this year.
