Overall Satisfaction with Navisworks

Navisworks is being used across the whole organization. It helps our numerous teams for clash detection purposes in BIM services. We can easily navigate through the 3D model and look out for any problem in the building model. Also, we can run clash detection in almost any category of elements and resolve the issues that might affect while actually constructing a building. It has whole lot of options to play with 3D models and finalize a building design and its MEPF services.
  • Clash detection
  • Timeline creation
  • Comments through markups
  • Rendering
  • Graphics hardware required to run it
  • Refreshing through the mother file
  • Clash detection
  • Timeliner
  • Markups creation
  • BIM project execution became easy
  • Project efficiency increased
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.
