Navisworks Products



Navisworks project review software enables architecture, engineering, and construction professionals to holistically review integrated models and data with stakeholders to gain better control over project outcomes. Integration, analysis, and communication tools help teams coordinate disciplines, resolve conflicts, and plan projects before construction or renovation begins.

 

Gain control over construction projects

Navisworks features enable coordination, construction simulation, and project analysis for integrated project review. Navisworks products include advanced tools to simulate and optimize scheduling, identify and coordinate clashes and interferences, collaborate, and gain insight into potential problems.

Navisworks Features

Coordination

Clash detection and interference checking
NAVISWORKS MANAGE

  • Dimension locking—Lock measurement to XYZ axis; lock measurement parallel or perpendicular to surface.
  • AutoZoom—Zoom to enable accurate selection of vertex, edge, or face.

Model simulation & analysis

Integrated 2D quantification
NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE
Sheet-based quantification supports integrated 2D and 3D project measurement.

Efficient 3D quantification
NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE
New tools automate whole-project quantification.
  • Generate detailed quantity workbooks from the integrated project data set.
  • Use the property mapping tool to work with multiple formats.
5D project scheduling includes time and cost
NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE
Simulate construction project scheduling in 5D to visually communicate and analyze project activities and minimize delays and sequencing problems.

Photorealistic model rendering
NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE
Use photorealistic model rendering capabilities to develop compelling 3D animations and imagery for project presentations.

Object animation and model simulation
NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE
Animate and interact with objects for better model simulation.
  • Create animations showing object movement, operation, assembly, and disassembly.
  • Create interaction scripts that link animations to specific events, triggers, or key commands.
  • Link object animations to tasks in a 5D schedule.
  • Include animated objects in a clash detection and interference analysis.
Smooth interaction with quantification data
NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE
Bring quantities from an aggregated model into a project. Mine quantities from model properties, and create placeholders for items not in the model.
