Prerequisites: Students should have a familiarity with the Windows based computer operating system, as well as a working knowledge of 3D design & task-scheduling software. This class is designed for new & experienced Autodesk Navisworks users who need to become familiar with the main tools within the software.
Expectations: Using the functionality of the Autodesk Navisworks Manage features, students learn how to open, review, quantify, & run object interference checks on 3D models. Students also learn to link to task-scheduling files & create 4D construction simulations.
Describe the main features and functionality of the Autodesk® Navisworks® software.
Open and append 3D files of different formats and save in the Autodesk Navisworks format.
Create links to object properties files and scheduling files in external databases.
Perform visual project model reviews using the built-in review and reporting tools.
Create construction simulations of a project model to check validity of construction schedules.
Use Animator and Scripter to create interactive animations for presentations and demonstrations.
Obtain 2D and 3D takeoff data from source models to create material estimates, measure areas, and count components.
Perform interference detection tests between 3D files of different disciplines to check integrity of the design.
Add true-to-life materials, lighting, and Environments to project models, to create photorealistic output.
