Clash detection is more than detecting the intersection of 2 or more objects. The Clash Detective is one of the most powerful tools in Navisworks Manage software. We will examine in detail how to solve firestop-related clashes and how to create consolidated submittals for government authorities. In a multiplatform workflow, you can use models from your preferred MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) application—like Fabrication CADmep software, AutoCAD MEP software, or Revit software—to generate a bill of material, and enable the tool to place hundreds of firestop objects automatically into your Building Information Modeling (BIM) model utilizing the Hilti plug-in for firestop. See how to quickly and easily include into your BIM model UL-Systems details; installation guidance; and X, Y, Z coordinates. Learn how to use Point Layout software to export data to a total station for easy and timesaving placement of cast-ins and sleeves on the construction site. Document the installation in the documentation system for later building operation and maintenance. This session features Navisworks Manage and AutoCAD MEP.
