Autodesk Navisworks: Essentials

This training course shows you how to use the Autodesk Navisworks Manage software in a BIM workflow to better predict project outcomes, reduce conflicts, minimize changes, and lower project risks.

This course provides instructions on how to consolidate civil, architectural, structural, and MEP models into a single BIM model and check for conflicts. It also discusses how to use the Review and Markup tools to communicate issues across disciplines, the Quantification module to create estimates for building materials, and Clash Detective to identify any constructability issues and on-site clashes. Finally, it describes how to use the features of the Navisworks software to better communicate expected intent to the project team and other stakeholders.

This course is designed for new users of Autodesk Navisworks in multiple disciplines.
