Navisworks the Model Collaboration and Coordination Supertool

Score 9 out of 10

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Navisworks in our building information modeling department, largely it is used for coordinating our mechanical, plumbing, electrical, and fire trades prior to the building being built. This allows us to prefabricate a lot of the things we do that otherwise would have to be measured and built after the structure is up. This streamlines our construction schedule and reduces costs from re-work since we have routes figured out prior to install so we don't have to worry about redoing something when things don't fit. It also is used by our self perform concrete department to plan concrete lift drawings, concrete estimates and embed layouts. This has made things significantly easier for our self perform crews and has greatly reduced the amount of mistakes that are made.

Navisworks is widely recognized in the Construction Industry as the go-to product for 3D coordination.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Navisworks is used for MEP/BIM coordination on commercial construction processes. It is used to pull in the different 3D computer-generated models from the design team, consultants, and subcontractors to coordinate the MEP routing through the building. We have been experimenting as a company with some 4D modeling and logistics planning with Navisworks as well.

Navisworks - Great for Coordination

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Navisworks Manage in our BIM department at Ludvik Electric. We also use Navisworks Freedom with our construction teams in the company. Navisworks Manage allows us to group all the other trades models and create clash detection against them. It shows us exactly where our issues are and with what other trades. Navisworks Freedom gives the rest of our team the ability to fly through the 3D model and look at everything that has been currently modeled.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Arden Building Companies is Design/Build MEP/FP Firm. We use Navisworks to coordinate Designs, communicate with clients and perform Clash Detection for our Construction Projects. We use this software across all four of our companies. There is no better way to explore a building virtually than with Navisworks. It is such a powerful program that reads so many different file types. It is the ultimate collaboration tool in the AEC Industry.

Essential tool for all BIM users

Score 9 out of 10

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

I work for a large mechanical contracting firm and we are awarded lots of extensive jobs that require heavy amounts of coordination. Our primary tool is Revit and we use Navisworks as a viewer for portrayal to the field and owners what the building will look like in future phases. We can easily call out all clashes through detection tests and manage screen captures through the viewpoint functionality which saves the field time and money.

I would recommend this tool for all firms that work in the BIM industry but would like to see Autodesk make some changes to the product. Unlike Revit and AutoCAD, every time Navisworks is updated it seems to remain the same with no improvements.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use it for coordination in both design and construction phase. We are using it in our department and manage the coordination process on multiple projects with large project teams. The business case is that it is accepted as standard by the industry so it is easy to get people on board.

Naviswork's not the hero Bim Baboons need

Score 10 out of 10

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

For Clash Detection and model visualization, it solves for integrating multiple different stakeholders into one platform where conflicts can be identified. The Virtual Construction Department are heavy users of the software. However, many non-VDC people are using Navis to get a grasp on what a project really looks like.
