Overall Satisfaction with Navisworks

My current company uses Navisworks for ongoing construction mainly for clash detection and timeline. It is also used in pre- construction as a selling point for the company.
  • Clash Detection
  • Time line
  • Combining different design models
  • Better resolution of timeline
  • Way to find out the location in a big building when getting lost inside the model
  • Saved lot of time for project engineerings and all the trades
  • Saved on potential conflicts that may occur after execution
  • Saved money on engineering team to review RFIs
  • Gave holistic view to plan better
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.
The support features solved almost all the issues. The official training videos are helpful to learn important tricks. Never had to contact Autodesk personally.
