The Autodesk Navisworks Using Autodesk Navisworks in a BIM Workflow make the student learn about the majors that would better predict project outcomes, will reduce conflicts and changes, and achieve lower project risk.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) means life cycle of entire building and it will be including all the phases of design process like creation of model, construction, and operations and maintenance etc. BIM workflow will make you learn changes in design throughout the BIM process, and effect of changes in BIM model.

In this training course, student will be learning consolidation of various models like civil, architectural, structural, and MEP into one BIM model. We will Start with an AutoCAD® Civil 3D® drawing file, then we will append Autodesk® Revit® and Autodesk® Inventor® models and will be checking for the conflicts. Next, we will be using review and markup tools used for communicating issues across various disciplines. Finally, we will be using TimeLiner, Animator, and Clash Detection for simulation of construction and finding constructability issues and on-site clashes.
