Autodesk Navisworks: Project Designers

In this course you will learn how to use the Autodesk Navisworks Manage software in a BIM workflow to better visualize the project and express to clients and stakeholders a conceptual look of the final project.

Instructions are provided on how to visually display consolidated civil, architectural, structural, and MEP models into a single BIM model and enhance the visual output of the whole project. You will also learn how to assign building materials for display, the TimeLiner and Animator to simulate construction, and to identify any constructability issues or potential delays. Finally, the course describes how to use the Rendering feature of the software to better communicate design intent to the project team and other stakeholders.

This course is designed for experienced users of Autodesk Navisworks in multiple disciplines. Autodesk Navisworks: Essentials is required prior to taking this course.

Topics Covered in this Autodesk Navisworks Training Course:
  • Understanding the use of Animation in the model to enhance the real-world presentation to clients and stakeholders
  • Writing scripts to interact with the model
  • Creating and animating a construction timeline
  • Creating photorealistic images
  • Prepare and setup model for full rendering output
Prerequisites for this Autodesk Navisworks Training Course:
Autodesk Navisworks: Essentials is expected to be taken prior to this course to gain the necessary understanding of the varying parts of the Navisworks software that will be used. Prior use of the Navisworks software may not be sufficient to use and understand the tools needed for the project designer course.

A working knowledge of 3D design and task-scheduling software is recommended.
