    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.

    If you've never used software before and have low expectations, then you might be able to make it work out.

    Pros

    Autodesk

    • 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.

    • Their videos are professional.
    • They have webinars.

    Cons

    Autodesk

    • 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.

    • Their spell checker creates a squiggly line to tell you that you have a misspelled word, but, doesn't allow you to correct it.
    • The spell checker lets you add custom words to a dictionary, but, it can only use one dictionary at a time to check spelling. So the default dictionary gets used, and your custom words still show up as being spelled wrong!
    • You can't select-copy addresses, in order to paste them somewhere else.
    • Using duplexing on my printer doesn't work right. It works for every other software I own, but not in UDA.
    • There is a bug in the WIP date range that doesn't pull accurate data.
    • "Options" in the estimate show only cost, not margin. So if you show your customer that report, you are revealing cost info, not selling price!!
    • You can't import a PDF into bid notes, even though the premise of UDA is to try to make it a single repository for all your information.
    • You can't use the arrow key to browse photos in UDA. You need to close, and click into the next one. No inuitive functionality.
    • The estimating module separates material and labor, in ways that create a very confusing Scope of Work. You need to select the labor item from your database, then separately select the material from your database. You end up with two line items in your Scope of Work for the same thing. Instead of writing, "Supply and Install a new window" you have "Supply a new window" and then "Install a new window." It's hard for my estimator, and confusing for my client.
    • UDA will WREAK HAVOC on your contacts in Outlook.
    • It does a terrible job of managing husband/wife or partner/partner situations. You can't mail merge them properly, or, you get forced into combining their contact into into a single contact-- and then how do you know whether the cell phone is his or hers???
    • There is no good way to credit design fees against the construction contract, if you happen to use that paradigm for your contracts.
    • There is no way to filter contracts by their date created. So, how do you find your newest contacts for entering them into something such as Constant Contact?
    • If you try to use integration of QuickBooks(QB) and UDA, your ITEMS list in QB will either get expanded to hundreds or even THOUSANDS of items... or, your POs in QB will get created in a summary form such that they are virtually meaningless.
    • The "lead funnel" graphic may look cool, but there is not a good way to actually report on the lead status, track the activities and calls that you make, note significant emails that you write, or keep track of when you send out thank-you cards or spiffs/gifts!
    • They might tell you that these things work, but, after spending MONTHS with UDA, I found out that these problems are deal breakers.
    • Within their customer service department, the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. They do not use a structure such as Zendesk that so many other great companies use. Even though I was paying for priority support, there were often days going by where I could not get a call or email back to assist me with a support request or provide a tutorial on how to do something. Had I not paid extra for support, this would be acceptable. But when paying for "TotalCare" priority support, there are times when the software had me stuck, and I was stuck for a day at a time waiting for an answer. Sometimes no answer ever arrived.

      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.

      Navisworks is a master tool if we want to do any 3D model coordination with any trade of a building. It allows us to view our model content with all elements to visualize and understand for certain where our design stands in terms of accuracy and how all things can be assembled on site. Navisworks also comes with a lot of additional tools to make BIM process easy.

      QuickBooks has great quality assurance and while they don't provide support, their software is nearly flawless. Co-construct provides great support and solves problems. In comparison, UDA Construction Suite is full of flaws, and their customer service department is disorganized and overworked.

      Return on Investment

      Autodesk

      • It helps in coordination on BIM projects. We have had major project coordination saving millions on jobs.
      • Helps us win more projects as we can coordinate them
      • Used to use the animation tools for site logistics. Now we use game engines.

      • All my money was wasted. I could not get a refund.
      • All my time was wasted. I spent much time on customer support, and even more time "stuck" where customer support could not be reached.
      • My staff time was wasted, because it was hard for them to implement and then we ultimately abandoned it.
