Navisworks is a project management and review software for AEC professionals and teams. Read the technical review written by our web editor
Navisworks is a project management and review software for AEC professionals and teams. It offers a holistic review of integrated models and data involving different stakeholders during the pre-construction phase. Thanks to Naviswork it is possible to optimize activities and obtain better control, giving greater assurance of completion.
Manufactured by Autodesk, Naviswork comes in two different editions:
- Navisworks Manage: provides collision detection tools, advanced coordination, 5D analysis and simulation tools;
- Navisworks Simulate: this software focuses more on reviewing and communicating design details through 5D design analysis and simulation.
Summary of benefits. RFI volume reduction
Detecting clashes and problems in building systems is a laborious task that often used to rely on manual processes, such as overlaying large drawings on light tables. This old practice could have resulted in a significant increase in the volume of RFI, whereas today it is possible to mitigate it using the advanced BIM technology offered by Navisworks.
Delays in completing a project often lead to confrontations and loss of money. Delays are costly and can drastically affect a company’s profits. Thanks to Navisworks it is possible to avoid, or at least reduce, these delays and simplify workflows in the process. The platform’s “Manage” function makes it possible to quickly detect any misalignment and quickly resolve it.
Direct access to projects thanks to the cloud function
Autodesk’s home software is “enriched” by a practical integration with BIM 360 Glue software. Thanks to the integration of BIM 360 management software, it is possible to share all the data of a single project with collaborators, including those who live and work hundreds of miles away. In this way, the workflow is much simpler and more fluid than traditional work processes because it avoids bottlenecks that cause serious delays in the processing and execution of project activities.
Naviswork enables design studios to work with added data
Instead of working with separate construction and design data, you can save a lot of time with Autodesk home software by bringing them together in a single model.
