NW101: Navisworks in a BIM Workflow
The Navisworks in a BIM Workflow course teaches you how to better predict project outcomes, reduce conflicts and changes, and achieve lower project risk using the Navisworks Manage software.
During this course, you will learn how to consolidate civil, architectural, structural, and MEP models into one BIM model. Starting with a Civil 3D drawing file, you will append various Revit and Inventor models and check for conflicts. You will also use review and markup tools for communicating issues across disciplines. By the end of the course, you will use TimeLiner, Animator, and Clash Detective to simulate construction and find constructability issues and on-site clashes.
