Features

Gain more control over construction projects

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

Desktop Subscription gives you access to the latest updates and releases, 1-on-1 web support, priority support in the forums, flexible licensing, and more.

    Coordination

  • BIM 360 Glue integration New

    NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE

    Deeper integration between Navisworks and BIM 360 Glue provides cloud connectivity to the Navisworks user, supporting shared Navisworks data and workflows with BIM 360 projects.

    NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE

    Improve project coordination with new BIM coordination model features in AutoCAD 2016 that allow you to open Navisworks and BIM 360 Glue models within design products. Designers can now model ‘in-context’ using the integrated Navisworks model as an underlay to assist with clash avoidance.

  • Clash detection and interference checking

    NAVISWORKS MANAGE

    Better anticipate and help reduce potential clash and interference problems before construction, minimizing expensive delays and rework.

  • Clash and interference management

    NAVISWORKS MANAGE

    Manage and track clashes and interferences more easily.

  • Dedicated Clash Detection tool

    NAVISWORKS MANAGE

    Clash Detection tool supports identification, management, and resolution of clashes.

    Model review

  • Interoperability enhancements New

    NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE

    Review and collaborate with your entire project team with third party software support. Updates to third party support include Graphisoft ArchiCAD and Rhino 3D.

  • Model file and data aggregation

    NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE

    Combine design and construction data into a single integrated model using model publishing, data and model aggregation tools.

  • Whole-project review

    NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE

    Facilitate review of all aspects of your project with the review toolkit.

  • NWD and DWF publishing

    NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE

    Publish your entire project for a whole-project view. Publish and store complete project models in a single distributable NWD or DWF file.

  • Streamlined collaboration

    NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE

    Communicate design intent more clearly and encourage teamwork with help from the collaboration toolkit.

  • Measurement tools

    NAVISWORKS MANAGE, NAVISWORKS SIMULATE

    Gain greater accuracy and control when taking dimensions from the model. 

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

    Model simulation & analysis

  • 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. In addition, you can tie quantification data to model objects without properties. This ability to go from high-level detailed models to virtually no details and still allow for more accurate quantity takeoff supports the entire project team, from design to field execution.
