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.

Right-Suite Universal

Right-suite Universal work's great for new construction projects as well as block loads for retro installations. We do not use the proposal features, but it does work well. You can not draw on top of existing PDF plans, which would be very helpful. Overall it’s an excellent software for mechanical contractors. Highly recommend it

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.

  • Design looks outdated
  • Does have a learning curve

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.

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.

Right-Suite Universal

Right-Suite Universal is the leading software, so there are really no others for what it does. Coolclac also does load calculations but does not have any plan design features. Coolcalc works well but is not as feature-rich as Right-Suite Universal.

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.
