The Autodesk® Navisworks® software solutions comprise four products to help you and your extended teams experience enhanced control, confident collaboration, and information aggregation on even your most complex projects: Autodesk® Navisworks® Manage, Autodesk® Navisworks® Simulate, Autodesk® Navisworks® Review, as well as the free* viewer application Autodesk® Navisworks® Freedom.

By combining the high-quality information created by BIM applications such as Revit®-based software with geometry and data from other design tools, Autodesk NavisWorks products enable a real-time, whole-project view for effective 3D coordination, 4D planning, photorealistic visualization, dynamic simulation, and accurate analysis.

Consistent, Coordinated, Correct

Integrating the functionality of both Autodesk Navisworks Review and Autodesk Navisworks Simulate with powerful clash detection capabilities, Autodesk Navisworks Manage provides the most complete Navisworks design review solution for your construction project. Enabling consistent, coordinated, and, most importantly, correct construction documentation, Navisworks Manage streamlines workflow across your organization and extended teams, helping to reduce waste, increase efficiency, and significantly reduce change orders.

Faster Navigation and Checking

Autodesk Navisworks Manage delivers seamless, interactive visualizations, enabling real-time walk-through and review of complex 3D models and all the project information they contain. Use Navisworks Manage to navigate and explore your designs faster, without the need for preprogrammed animation, advanced hardware, or special skills.

Through effective identification, inspection, and reporting of potential interferences in a 3D project model, Navisworks Manage reduces error-prone manual checking. Navisworks Manage enables users to check time and space coordination, improving site and workflow planning. Control and peace of mind are enhanced through advanced analysis and coordination of 3D designs. Early fault prediction and error recognition help to prevent eventual, more costly, miscalculations. Combine all your 3D data, no matter what file size and from multiple formats, into a comprehensive, realistic building information model for viewing and analyzing all digital information.

Navisworks Manage combines precise fault-finding with hard and clearance clash management. Quickly review and cross-check geometry created by competing 3D design software. Maintain a complete and valuable record of all interferences found throughout your project. Check for time and space coordination and virtually eliminate workflow issues at the planning stage. Point- and line-based clashing enable coordination of a laser-scanned as-built environment with the virtual model.

Autodesk Navisworks Manage
Autodesk Navisworks Manage software provides all the tools required for smooth-running construction projects. Navisworks Manage fuses seamless visualization of all types of models, precise replication of designs, accurate simulation of 4D construction schedules, and powerful clash detection into one product, keeping all project stakeholders on the same digital page, whether creating, viewing, or reviewing 3D models.

 

Autodesk Navisworks Simulate
Autodesk Navisworks Simulate software helps you perform precise replication of designs and accurate modeling of 4D construction schedules, improving productivity and quality by enabling precise previsualization of construction projects.

Virtually experiencing your project in a visual context before physical work begins provides the opportunity to evaluate and verify the materials and textures appropriate to your intended design.

 

Autodesk Navisworks Review
Autodesk Navisworks Review software enables seamless visualization of all types of models, regardless of format or file size.

 

Autodesk Navisworks Freedom
Autodesk Navisworks Freedom software is the free* viewer for files in Autodesk Navisworks .NWD and 3D DWF format.

* Free products subject to the terms and conditions of the end-user license agreement that accompanies download of the software.

Anticipate Problems
Autodesk Navisworks Manage provides features to anticipate potential problems:

  • Interference Detection enables clash tests against specified geometry to find and resolve conflicts.
  • Point/Line Based Clashing provides checking of as-built laser scan data against 3D designs.
  • SwitchBack opens the current clash in the original design software. (Compatible with AutoCAD 2004® software and later or Microstation J and version 8)
  • Audit Trail tracks the status of clashes as they are found and resolved.
  • Export reports with results of clash tests including comments and screenshots.
  • XML import/export enables sharing of clash scenarios with other Autodesk Navisworks users.

Schedule in 4D
Both Autodesk Navisworks Manage and Autodesk Navisworks Simulate enable you to schedule in 4D:
  • 4D simulation links model geometry to times and dates for playback of construction or demolition sequences to verify building or demolition viability.
  • Schedule Linking enables import of times, dates, and other task data from project management software.
  • Set up planned and actual times to visualize deviations from the project schedule.
  • Export 4D simulations into a prerecorded .AVI animation.
  • Customize task color and transparency, as well as overlay text.

Present Projects

With Autodesk Navisworks Manage and Autodesk Navisworks Simulate, you can present projects:

  • Export photorealistic renderings into .AVI animations or still images.
  • Benefit from more than 1,000 built-in materials.
  • Fully customize and configure every render aspect, including materials, lights, backgrounds, and rendering styles.
  • Rich Photorealistic Content (RPC) enables easy addition of photographic imagery, such as people and trees, to scenes.
  • HDRI Lighting provides powerful rendering technology for smooth shadows and natural lighting.
  • Environment Backgrounds enable easy addition of real-world background scenery.
  • Real-time Shaders support OpenGL 2.0 shader language for real-time lighting and shadows.
