Autodesk Navisworks 2015
Coordinated, Complete Control.
Control Your Project Outcomes
Fully integrate, analyze, and
communicate your design models
and gain insight and predictability
into construction.
The Autodesk® Navisworks® family of
products helps architecture, engineering,
and construction teams improve control
over the outcome of their projects. With
Navisworks solutions, detailed design
models can be aggregated and reviewed by
all project stakeholders, helping users to
benefit from the competitive advantages of
building information modeling (BIM) workflows. BIM processes allow team members
to explore a project’s key physical and
functional characteristics digitally before
it is built, helping to deliver projects faster,
more economically, and with reduced
environmental impact.
With Autodesk Navisworks solutions,
users can combine design data created
in applications—such as the AutoCAD ®
software and Autodesk ® Revit®-based
applications—with geometry and information from other design tools in multiple
file formats, regardless of file size. The
result is a whole-project view that helps
all project stakeholders to make better
design decisions, increase accuracy of
construction documentation, and predict
performance and planning.
The Autodesk Navisworks software family
offers three products to provide project
stakeholders with the right tools to help
collaborate, coordinate, and communicate
more effectively.
Autodesk Navisworks Manage
Autodesk ® Navisworks® Manage software
is a comprehensive review solution for
analysis, simulation, and coordination of project
information. Multidisciplinary design data can be
combined into a single integrated project model
for interference management and clash detection.
Navisworks Manage helps design and construction
professionals anticipate and avoid potential
problems before construction.
Autodesk Navisworks Simulate
Autodesk ® Navisworks® Simulate software
provides advanced tools for reviewing, analysis,
simulation, and coordination of project
information. Comprehensive 4D simulation,
animation and photorealism capabilities enable
the demonstration of design intent and simulation
of construction to provide better insight and
predictability. Real-time navigation combines
with review toolsets to support collaboration
among the project team.
Autodesk Navisworks Freedom
Autodesk ® Navisworks® Freedom software is
the free* viewer for NWD and 3D DWF™ files.
Navisworks Freedom extends the whole-project
view to all project stakeholders, helping to
improve communication and collaboration.
and Analysis
Project Review Features
Model File and Data Aggregation
Autodesk Navisworks model file and data
aggregation features enable you to combine
design, construction, and other project data into
a single integrated project model. The software
incorporates files in any major 3D design or
laser scan file format, reads intelligent data from
original design files for viewing beside the model,
and imports data from external databases and
displays it within the model.
Review Toolkit
The software’s review toolkit offers a host of tools
that facilitate whole-project review. Its features
enable you to measure distance, areas, and
angles; store, organize, and share camera views
of a design and export those views into images
or reports; and add cross sections and section
plans to inspect details closely. Navisworks
NWF reference files enable you to view the
latest version of a CAD design while maintaining
previous review data.
NWD and 3D DWF Publishing
Publish your entire project for a whole-project
view. Complete project models can be published
and stored in a single distributable NWD or
DWF file with compressed file sizes up to 90
percent smaller than original design files.
Collaborate, Coordinate, Communicate
Bring together the contributions of project designers and
building professionals into a single, synchronized building
model rich in information.
Collaboration Toolkit
Communicate design intent and encourage
teamwork with the ability to add markups
to viewpoints with advanced redlining tools,
comment on viewpoints with searchable notes,
record animated walk-throughs for real-time
playback, and stream large models and content,
navigating the design as the model loads.
Simulation and Analysis Features
4D Scheduling
Simulate construction schedules and logistics in
4D to visually communicate and analyze project
activities, and help reduce delays and sequencing
problems. The 4D scheduling features enable
you to verify building or demolition viability by
developing construction or demolition sequences
that link model geometry to times and dates;
import times, dates, and other task data from
project management software to dynamically link
schedules with project models; and set up planned
and actual times to visualize deviations from the
project schedule.
Clash and Interference Management
Autodesk Navisworks Manage software provides
the ability to manage and track clashes and
interferences through to resolution. Reports of
clash tests, including comments and screenshots,
can be exported to communicate issues to the
project team.
Project Viewing
Photorealistic Visualization
Use Autodesk Navisworks advanced visualization
features to develop compelling 3D animations
and imagery to present projects to stakeholders.
Customize and configure every render aspect,
including materials, lights, backgrounds, and
rendering styles; use environment backgrounds
to add real-world scenery; and choose from more
than 1,000 built-in materials to create an accurate,
photorealistic look.
Object Animation
The software’s object animation features help
you create animations of objects for clash and
interference analysis. You can create interaction
scripts that link animations to specific events,
triggers, or key comments, and link animations
to tasks in a 4D schedule for improved
construction planning.
Clash and Interference Detection
Anticipate and avoid potential problems before
construction, reducing expensive delays and
rework. Clash and interference detection features
in Autodesk Navisworks Manage software enable
you to perform clash tests against specified
geometry to more easily find and resolve conflicts.
Link clash tests to 4D simulations and object
animations to analyze issues in space and time.
Real-Time Navigation
Explore your integrated project model using
advanced navigation tools that produce a realistic,
real-time experience. Real-time navigation
capabilities are included in all Autodesk
Navisworks products.
Using Navisworks for clash detection during the initial
design coordination process, we reduced thousands of
clashes to only a handful—helping us save time and money
and decrease the overall time spent on design. During
construction, Navisworks helped us push the completion
of critical areas and significantly increase coordination
with the trades.
