Autodesk Navisworks Essentials

The Autodesk® Navisworks® 2020: Using Autodesk Navisworks in a BIM Workflow guide teaches you how to better predict project outcomes, reduce conflicts and changes, and achieve lower project risk using the Autodesk® Navisworks® Manage software in a BIM workflow.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) encompasses the entire building life cycle. BIM includes all phases of the design process, from model creation to construction and ending at operations and maintenance. Using a BIM workflow, you will learn how a design changes throughout the BIM process and how the changes affect the BIM model.

Over the course of this guide, you will learn how to consolidate civil, architectural, structural, and MEP models into one BIM model. Starting with an Autodesk® Civil 3D® drawing file, you will append various Autodesk® Revit® and Autodesk® Inventor® models and check for conflicts. Note: Clash Detection is only available in Navisworks Manage – it is not available in Navisworks Simulate or Navisworks Freedom.

Next, you will use review and markup tools for communicating issues across disciplines. Finally, you will use TimeLiner, Animator, and Clash Detective to simulate construction and find constructibility issues and on-site clashes.

This guide is designed for new and experienced users of the Autodesk Navisworks software in multiple disciplines.
