Navisworks

Navisworks is a key tool if doing any 3D model coordination with other trades. It will allow you to view your model content with others to know for certain that your design is accurate and can be assembled. Navisworks also comes with a lot of additional tools to make this process easy.

Raken

Raken is a great way to keep track of the day to day work being done on the job site. It's especially good at keeping all members of the project on the same page and all updated with the most current information on the job. Photos help assist office personnel and Project Managers of the progress on the job site.

Pros

Navisworks

  • Model Viewing, the navigation tools are really easy to use for walking through the model, especially if viewpoints are set up for key locations.
  • The take-offs work really well and can be very quick and easy if the model was built right.

Cons

Navisworks

  • A link to BIM 360 Model Coordination is a serious shortcoming. It used to be easy to link to models loaded to BIM 360 Glue for more in depth clash detection.
  • I would have liked the ability to export a simulation created in Navisworks to 3DS Max for a more immersive animation with decent material mapping and better animation tools.
  • I would like to be able to view/create BIM 306 Docs/Field issues directly in Navisworks. In the current workflow we have to use other file formats to work within BIM 360. It would be more productive to be able to navigate the model through Navisworks and to create viewpoints and issues from within Navisworks.

Raken

  • I hear some feedback from our field team that occasionally the application is slow or crashes on their devices.

Autodesk owns Navisworks, and it seems to have a pretty good support network. A lot of the troubleshooting or support information is provided through an online database, so you most likely would not be getting any personal attention with your issues. Since there are so many users for Navisworks, there is a lot of information on the web.

The customer service is excellent. They send webinar to watch and material to read to keep you informed.

Alternatives Considered

Navisworks

It can integrate many different types of file formats of all types of design including architectural, structural, interior, MEP. It has good ability to make walk through videos and make it inclusion with the timeline. Clash detection is the main feature which sets it apart from the other software. No other programs has as effective clash detection as Navisworks.
Malhar Modi, LEED AP, CMIT | TrustRadius Reviewer

Raken

We use both software. Procore, we just recently switched over to. It is a compelling program, but just at a higher price point. Raken is a more affordable option, although they may not have exactly all the features that Procore has. But it does what it needs to pretty well.

Return on Investment

Navisworks

  • In operations, the clash detection feature has been very positive.
  • In preconstruction/estimating, it's been positive, but I can't say there is a direct indication of a positive ROI. It does, however, help with the precon/estimating process.

Raken

  • Raken is improving communication from the field to the office.
  • It's improving our daily job site documentation.
  • It has improved our timesheet processes, and simplified them.
