Navisworks Essentials


The Autodesk® Navisworks Essentials training 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 Navisworks. Using the functionality of the Navisworks Review, Simulate, and Manage features, students learn how to open, review, and run object-interference checks on 3Dmodels.

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 createphotorealistic images and animations
