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.
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
In this post, we analyze an isometric projection as one of the main modes of viewing 3D-models with 3D CAD software.Read more
