Join Jim Cowan for an in-depth discussion in this video Why Navisworks: What is in it for you?, part of Navisworks Advanced.
- [Instructor] So why would you…be interested in using Navisworks?…By Navisworks, I mean Navisworks Manage…which has all of the features,…and Navisworks Simulate which as all of the features…except for the ability to do Clash detection,…and Navisworks Freedom which is a free viewer…that anybody can download, and it will let them look…at the output from Navisworks Manage or Simulate…in the form of Navisworks document files.…
First thing you should be interested in…that Navisworks lets you combine building elements…to create a virtual model often referred to…as a federated model,…and those model elements can come…from a multitude of different vendors.…This will allow you to manage risk very early…in the process so you're discovering issues…in the virtual building, and therefore avoiding…having to pay for the correction in the building…as it's being constructed, so you're resolving conflict…before you get to the construction phase.…
As I mentioned, there's the three flavors,…Manage, Simulate, and Freedom.…There's also an associated product,…
