Autodesk Navisworks is a software tool that takes construction projects to the next stage of the Building Information Modelling (BIM) process beyond 2D/3D modelling software, i.e. Revit, to 4D/5D BIM requirements.

Navisworks software lets Architecture, Engineering and Construction professionals holistically review integrated models and data with stakeholders during preconstruction to better control project outcomes.

Autodesk Navisworks Manage lets you reliably share, combine and review detailed 3D design models from multiple file formats. Clash Detection tools let you quickly analyse interferences in a single model environment to find faults before they become on-site problems, thereby reducing project construction time and saving money. Real-time visualisation and simulation allow you to validate design performance and reduce waste.

This course is an introduction which provides a ‘hands on’ overview of many of the basic uses and advantages of Navisworks software.

This is an ideal introductory course for Architects, Engineering and Construction professionals, and anyone who has construction background and a working knowledge of a BIM 3D Modelling software.

Course Prerequisites:

A working knowledge of a BIM 3D Modelling package such as Revit is required.

Experience of construction related task scheduling software is desirable.
