  • Cloud service

    BIM 360 shared views New


    Users connected to a BIM 360 Glue project can share views resulting from their review and analysis activity. In BIM 360 Glue, create a folder structure to manage your views. Then from either Navisworks 2017 or BIM 360 Glue, create views and share them with the connected team, providing real-time access across clients.

  • BIM 360 Glue integration


    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.

  • BIM coordination with AutoCAD


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

  • Clash detection and interference checking


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

    • Perform clash detection tests against specified geometry to help find and resolve conflicts.
    • Check as-built laser-scan data against 3D designs.
    • Open current clash in many original design software applications.
    • View clashes in context with geometry in the model and in relation to other clashes.
    • Make all nonclashing items transparent to more easily locate clashes in the model.
    • Move between clash results to maintain orientation in the model.
    • Create Hard, Clearance, and Duplicate clash tests to support multiple coordination scenarios.
    • Analyze space and time by linking clash tests to 5D simulations and object animations.
  • Clash and interference management


    Manage and track clashes and interferences more easily.

    • Track the status of clashes as you find and resolve them.
    • Group clash results to address multiple results as a single issue.
    • Group and filter clashes using grid and level location.
    • Export reports with results of clash tests, including comments and screenshots, to help communicate issues to the project team.
    • Share clash scenarios with other Navisworks Manage users with XML import/export for reuse on similar projects.
  • Dedicated Clash Detection tool


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