What you'll learn

This course introduces BIM professionals to Autodesk Navisworks, the most widely used BIM Data Coordination software. The author shares his industry experience of running coordination meetings and explains how to create a federated model by combining Autodesk Revit models from Architectural, Structural, HVAC, Electrical, and Plumbing consultants and then navigate around that model. You will learn how to create viewpoints and walkthrough animations in that model. You will also learn how to review the design using redline markups, measure dimensions, add search sets and selection sets, and section the model. This course also covers how to perform clash tests between various items in the consultants' models and generating clash reports to be issued to the individual consultants. The author then explains how to publish the NWD file after the coordination meeting and then how the Switchback functionality can be used to view the clashing items in Autodesk Revit for easy fixing of the issues.
