Q - question

Error 16390 when reading a DWFx into Navisworks.

A - answer When you try to open (import) a 3D file .DWF or .DWFx from Inventor into Autodesk Navisworks, you may get the error 16390 - can't be opened:

This file contains encrypted information and cannot be opened. Please publish or save it without digital rights management. Error code: 16390

The reason of this error is a restriction of some DWF features set when publishing the model in Inventor - e.g. printing or measuring. Use "custom" DWF publishing and re-publish the 3D model again, without any rights restrictions.
