Join Eric Wing for an in-depth discussion in this video The three Navisworks versions, part of Navisworks Essential Training.
To begin with there are three different versions of Navisworks. These three different versions differ in functionality from full blown to a really nice reader. The price can range from over $8,000 to absolutely free. So, let's take a look at the three different Navisworks versions. Starting with Navisworks Manage, we'll look at Navisworks Simulate, then we're going to take a look at Navisworks Freedom. The first version we'll talk about is Navisworks Manage. This is the full blown Navisworks. This has all the features we're going to cover in this course.
It costs over $8,000. The next version we'll look at is Simulate. Simulate does not have clash detection. You also cannot do interference checking in Simulate. Simulates less expensive. It costs over $2,000. Last but not least, we look at Freedom. Freedom is a free viewer. You cannot save a file in Freedom. You have a timeline playback function, but you can't create a timeliner. In freedom you must open a .NWD file format.
So if you only need to see Navisworks model and not make any edits, perhaps freedom is for you. If you need most of the functionality but don't need clash detection simulate is for you. If you need the full power of Navisworks works well then go with manage.
