Event Details

3 days

To teach users the concepts of Building Information Modeling and introduce the tools for analysis and coordination using Autodesk Navisworks.

Who Should Attend
New users of Autodesk Navisworks.

In this course, using hands-on exercises that demonstrate the functionality of the Autodesk Navisworks Simulate and Manage features, students learn how to open, review, and run object-interference checks on 3D models. Students also learn how to link to task-scheduling files and create 3D construction simulations. Using the Animator and Scripter tools, students create interactive animations. In addition, students learn how the Presenter tools can help them to create photorealistic images and animations. This course provides students with the skills and knowledge to use Navisworks 2013 effectively


  • Building design or construction experience is highly recommended. No previous CAD experience is necessary.
  • A working knowledge of Microsoft Windows 7 or 8
