Autodesk Navisworks - Using Navisworks in a BIM Workflow

This course teaches how to use Navisworks to consolidate civil, architectural, structural, and MEP models into one BIM model. Starting with an AutoCAD Civil 3D drawing file, you will append various Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Inventor models and check for conflicts. Next, you will use review and mark-up tools for communicating issues across disciplines. Finally, you will use TimeLiner, Animator, and Clash Detective to simulate construction and highlight potential issues such as on-site clashes.


This course is designed for new or experienced users of the Autodesk Navisworks software and covers multiple disciplines. A working knowledge of 3D design and task-scheduling software is recommended.
