Description

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. Software required: Autodesk Navisworks 2016.

Course Overview
Hi there. Welcome to the Getting Started with Autodesk Navisworks 2016 course. My name is Deepak Maini and I'm the author of the Up and Running with Autodesk Navisworks series of books. Autodesk Navisworks is becoming an integrated part of the overall BIM strategy around the world. Its ability to work with a large of native files is making it the software of choice for running coordination meetings of BIM projects around the world. I'm really excited about teaching you Autodesk Navisworks because in addition to teaching you this program, I will also share with you my experience of running coordination meetings using this software. We will start with creating the federated model by combining the BIM data from the structural, architectural, HVAC, plumbing and electrical consultants. Then I'll explain how we get our federated models ready for coordination meetings. Once we have our federated model ready, I will explain how to navigate around the model, how we perform design reviews, add redline markups, measure distances, and also perform clash tests between various disciplines. And finally, I will explain how we publish our Autodesk Navisworks with our redline markups, reviews, and clash results and also generate clash reports to be shown to the individual consultants, because a number of consultants rely on these clash reports to review their issues and to fix them. As I said, I'm really excited about teaching you Autodesk Navisworks. I hope you have a great time learning and using this course.
