Navisworks is a 3D design review software developed by Autodesk that enables project teams to coordinate and review their designs in a collaborative environment. It allows users to combine 3D models from different sources and file formats to create a complete project model. Navisworks supports multiple file extensions including .dwg, .dxf, .rvt, .ifc, and .nwd, allowing users to import and export files from various CAD and BIM applications.
Navisworks offers extensive interoperability capabilities with different CAD applications, making it an essential tool in the design and construction industry. Its interoperability capabilities allow it to combine 3D models from different sources into a complete and coherent project model. Navisworks can read and write AutoCAD files (.dwg and .dxf), Revit files (.rvt), and Industry Foundation Classes files (.ifc). It can also import 3D models from other BIM applications such as ArchiCAD, Tekla, and SketchUp.
Navisworks supports direct linking with Autodesk products such as Revit and AutoCAD, enabling users to coordinate their designs and share data between different applications. It also has a plugin architecture that allows third-party developers to create plugins that enhance its capabilities and interoperability with other CAD applications.
Navisworks enables project teams to collaborate effectively by allowing them to perform clash detection, construction simulation, and project analysis. The software helps to identify conflicts between different construction elements, reducing design errors and avoiding rework costs. It also allows users to simulate the construction process and optimize the construction sequence, thereby reducing construction time and costs.
