Two-day, hands-on course covering the essential tools in Navisworks to enable coordination, construction simulation, and whole-project analysis for integrated project review.

Gain the skills needed to use Navisworks to identify and correct issues in a building before construction begins. Learn how to open, review, and run clash detection on 3D models; link to task-scheduling files; create 4D construction simulations; and quantify building elements for estimating. You will also use the Animator and Scripter tools to create interactive animations and the Rendering tools to create photorealistic images and animations.
