The AutodeskÂ® NavisworksÂ® 2016 Essentials course instructs students in best approaches to combine 3D geometry from cross disciplines into one scene to enable effective model reviews. Through a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum, students acquire the knowledge needed to review and markup the model, use TimeLiner, Animator, Scripter, and Presenter, as well as the Clash Detective tools within Autodesk Navisworks. Using the functionality of the AutodeskÂ® NavisworksÂ® Review, Simulate, and Manage features, students learn how to open, review, and run object-interference checks on 3D models. Students also learn how to link to task-scheduling files and create 4D construction simulations. Using the Animator and Scripter tools, students create interactive animations. In addition, students learn how the Presenter tools can help them create photorealistic images and animations.
Open and append 3D files of different formats and save in the Autodesk Navisworks format
Create links to object property files and scheduling files in external databases
Perform visual project model reviews using the built-in review and reporting tools
Create construction simulations of a project model to check the validity of construction schedules
Use Animator and Scripter to create interactive animations for presentations and demonstrations
Obtain 2D and 3D takeoff data from source models to create material estimates, measure areas, and count components
Perform interference detection tests between 3D files of different disciplines to check integrity of the design
Describe the main features and functionality of Autodesk Navisworks
Before attending this course, students should have working knowledge of 3D design and task-scheduling software. This course is designed for new and experienced Autodesk Navisworks users who need to become familiar with the main tools within the software.
