Autodesk Navisworks Manage Fundamentals



The Autodesk Navisworks Fundamental course is a 24-hour course that covers how to better predict project outcomes, reduce conflicts and changes, and achieve lower project risk using the Autodesk Navisworks Manage software in a BIM workflow.

Building Information Modelling (BIM) encompasses the entire building life cycle. BIM includes all phases of the design process, from model creation to construction and ending at operations and maintenance. Using a BIM workflow, you will learn how a design changes throughout the BIM process and how the changes affect the BIM model. 

Over the course of this training, you will learn how to consolidate architectural, structural, and MEP models into one BIM model. Starting with an Autodesk Civil 3D drawing file, you will append various Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Inventor models and check for conflicts. Next, you will use review and markup tools for communicating issues across disciplines. Finally, you will use TimeLiner, Animator, and Clash Detective to simulate construction and find constructability issues and on-site clashes.

  • Understanding the purpose of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and how it is applied in the Autodesk Navisworks software.

  • Consolidate Models

    • Navigating the Autodesk Navisworks workspace and interface.

    • Creating a composite model.

    • Transforming models for proper alignment.

  • Review and Analyse Models

    • Using basic viewing tools, Saving, and retrieving views, sectioning a model.

    • Investigating properties, searching for items.

    • Hiding and unhiding items.

  • Communication

    • Measuring a model.

    • Adding tags and comments to model components.

    • Marking up and redlining the model.

    • Animate a model.

    • Writing scripts for interacting with the model.

    • Creating photorealistic images.

  • Collaboration

    • Reviewing a model for clashes.

    • Consolidating redlines from other team members.

    • Performing quantification calculations and material take-offs.

  • Construction

    • Creating a construction timeline.

    • Animating a construction timeline.



  • Access to the 2021.0 version of the software

  • A working knowledge of 3D design and task-scheduling software is recommended.

  • Background in Architecture, Engineering and Construction is must.

  • Working knowledge and Experience in construction processes such as scheduling, take-off, etc is highly recommended.
