NAVISWORKS is a 3D design review package.
Used primarily in construction industries to complement 3D design packages (such as Autodesk Revit, AutoCAD, and MicroStation) Navisworks allows users to open and combine 3D models, navigate around them in real-time (without the WASD possibility) and review the model using a set of tools including comments, redlining, viewpoint, and measurements. A selection of plug-ins enhances the package adding interference detection, 4D time simulation, photorealistic rendering and PDF-like publishing.
AREAS OF APPLICATION
- Improves 3D presentation techniques with clients and consultants
- Improves 3D model interaction with clients
- Improves collision detection
Navisworks’ greatest strength is clash detection
Entire 3D model can be viewed and walked through and sections of building isolated to be analyzed at much greater speeds than in REVIT
Provides clients with small files containing overall project 3D information without overwhelming them with entire REVIT project database
Clients can download free Navisworks file viewer, allowing them to rotate, spin, flip and walk through the model
