Autodesk Navisworks 2018 Using Autodesk Navisworks in a BIM WorkflowNewly Released

Autodesk Navisworks 2018 Using Autodesk Navisworks in a BIM Workflow Course Description

Duration: 2.00 days (16 hours)

Building Information Modeling (BIM) encompasses the entire building life cycle. BIM includes all phases of the design process, from model creation, to construction, and ending at operations and maintenance. Using a BIM workflow, you will learn how a design changes throughout the BIM process, and how the changes affect the BIM model.

Through this learning course, you will learn how 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 markup tools for communicating issues across disciplines. Finally, you will use TimeLiner, Animator, and Clash Detective to simulate construction and find constructibility issues and on-site clashes.

This learning course is designed for new and experienced users of the Autodesk Navisworks software in multiple disciplines. This learning course has been developed using software version 15.0.1314.36.
