Autodesk Navisworks: Fundamentals

This training course teaches 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.

The 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 material, and the TimeLiner, Animator, and Clash Detective to simulate construction and to identify any constructibility issues and on-site clashes. Finally, it describes how to use the Rendering feature of the software to better communicate design intent to the project team and other stakeholders.

This Autodesk Navisworks Manage training course is designed for new and experienced users of the Autodesk Navisworks software in multiple disciplines.
