3D model review, coordination, and clash detection

Connect design and construction teams and streamline clash detection and coordination in BIM

Overview

Summary

Use Navisworks® review and coordination software to improve BIM (Building Information Modeling) project delivery.

  • Visualize and unify design and construction data within a single federated model.
  • Identify and resolve clash and interference problems before construction begins, saving time onsite and in rework.
  • Keep project teams collaborating and connected with Navisworks issues integration in the Autodesk Construction Cloud.
System requirements:

Combine data from multiple sources to prevent problems.

Highlights

Control project outcomes with Navisworks review software.

Control schedules and costs using 4D and 5D simulation
Animate and interact with model objects for simulation. Create schedules directly from project models. Import schedules and cost items from external project management applications.
Capture material quantities from 2D or 3D designs
Measure lines, areas, and counts from 2D sheets or 3D models. Create synchronized project views that combine Revit and AutoCAD files, including geometry, images, and data. Export takeoff data to Excel for analysis.
Run seamless projects with Autodesk project delivery tools

Connect field and studio teams with compatible BIM tools. Detect, manage, and resolve constructability challenges with Navisworks, Revit, and the Autodesk Construction Cloud.

Coordination

Detect clashes & coordinate models (Manage only)

View clashes in context with the Navisworks Clash Detective. Audit, inspect, and report interferences (clashes) in a 3D project model, with issues integration into the Autodesk Construction Cloud, Revit, and more.

Coordination Issues integration

Quickly identify and resolve costly constructability issues. View, create, and respond to issues on models in Model Coordination, in both Autodesk Construction Cloud and Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro. 

Updated IFC file reader

Use the same open-source code from Revit to handle IFC files, with added hierarchy, Pset, and data enhancements.

Support for 60+ file formats

Open and work with a variety of CAD file formats in one comprehensive application.

Coordination with Autodesk products

Open Navisworks files in Autodesk AutoCAD, Revit, and ReCap Pro.

Navisworks + Point Layout

Automatically add layout points to coordinated models. Import, export, and compare directly in Navisworks.

Model Review

Model simulation and animation

Link animated model objects to construction schedules for project simulations. Animate task completion, material stock arrival & depletion & vehicular access to site.

Whole-team project review

Bring together data created by multi-disciplinary teams to explore and review complex models in real time.

Aggregate data into one model

Combine design and construction data into a single model.

Publish and share NWD & DWF files

Publish models in distributable file formats that capture detailed design information.

Measurement tools

Quickly measure between points using face, snapping, axis locking & quick zoom.

Redline tool

Gain greater clarity and control when adding redlines.

Quantification

Integrated quantification takeoff

Measure lines, areas, and counts with 2D and 3D takeoff rather than carrying out manual calculations.

Quantification from PDF sheets

Trace existing geometry on a 2D PDF worksheet, such as a floor plan, to create takeoffs automatically.

Navisworks + Assemble

Bring models from Navisworks into Assemble for use in estimating, scheduling, or other workflows.

Model Simulation & Viewing

Reality capture capabilities

Integration to detect/verify clashes & construction. Leverage Autodesk ReCap Pro to survey & identify physical objects & existing conditions on the construction site.

Appearance profiler

Add new depths of clarity by coloring project models based on their properties and applying them to your entire project.

Cloud rendering

Create renders for whole-project models you can store and share in the cloud.

5D project scheduling

Simulate 5D construction schedules and logistics.

Photorealistic model rendering

Develop compelling 3D animations and imagery.

Real-time navigation

Explore an integrated project model as it is built.
