Navisworks® project review software by Autodesk is used to improve the coordination of BIM and AEC projects. Its main function is to define clashes, interferences, and similar conflicts within the design stage and to resolve them.
Navisworks® combines all the data related to the project and lets all relevant parties explore and review it. The software brings together design and engineering data, construction schedules, animated models, and simulation. It allows users to perform comprehensive analysis and accurate control of complex construction works.
Autodesk Inventor is a CAD application for 3D mechanical design, simulation, visualization and documentation. It is built on ShapeManager, geometric modeling kernel by Autodesk.
Inventor enables 2D and 3D data integration in a single environment, virtually representing the final product. It allows users to check the form, fit, and functions of the product before it is built. The application provides strong parametric, direct edit and freeform modeling tools as well as multi-CAD translation abilities.
A CAD file is an output of a CAD software, containing key information about the designed object: its geometry and topology representation, 3D model hierarchy, metadata, and visual attributes depending on the format of the file.Read more
