Navisworks from Autodesk is an architecture, engineering, and construction software used primarily to review 3D and 5D models using Building Information Modeling (BIM) files. While 3D BIM adds parametric design and 4D BIM, time-related information, 5D BIM adds costs to BIM components to assist in the calculation of total project costs. Navisworks opens and combines 5D BIM files for project review, 5D analysis, quantification, and simulation.
The course helps you use Navisworks to communicate your design intent and simulate construction using 5D BIM models. You will learn to make your cost information, such as schedules, prices, and quantities, accurate and error-free. You will also be learning 5D simulation to identify potential conflicts and detect construction risks early in the planning stage. Training will cover modules including:
The promises of 5D BIM are many, including a vast reduction in time taken to generate a cost estimate, figure out clash detections, and find simulations of a building. However, to ensure that the design intent is communicated clearly and the BIM model is free of errors, the adoption of software like Navisworks is important. Coming from the house of Autodesk, Navisworks coordinates models from different sources, including Revit, AutoCAD, Sketchup, and many other popular software. Students well versed in using Navisworks in a 5D BIM environment can easily find jobs such as:
