Navisworks is a popular project review platform that lets engineers, construction professionals, and architects assess their data and models with stakeholders during the pre-construction stage. This will ensure better control of their project outcomes.
Navisworks provides two products: Navisworks Manage and Navisworks Simulate. These products contain useful tools for project professionals and stakeholders. The tools will help them coordinate and collaborate with each other more effectively.
Navisworks Manage offers 5D analysis, advanced coordination, clash detection, and simulation tools. Navisworks Simulate concentrates on analyzing and communication project details using simulation and 5D analysis.
Navisworks Manage offers Autodesk BIM 360 Glue integration. It connects everyone to a specific project and helps streamline their BIM project. The product offers model coordination along with scheduling and project quantities to promote the delivery of quantification and simulation functionalities.
Navisworks Simulate offers 5D simulation tools and other robust functionalities to aid users in communicating their project information effectively. These features consist of visualization, animation, quantification, and scheduling. The product also offers Autodesk BIM 360 Glue integration.
The platform has plenty of features that cater to management and review needs. It helps users complete their projects efficiently and quickly while significantly improving their bottom line.

The main benefits of Navisworks are its ability to combine design model contributions from construction professionals, engineers, and project designers into a single model for review. Specifically, here are the advantages users can expect from the system:
Reduced RFI Volume
Navisworks can mitigate the detection of building system clashes using their improved BIM technology. This feature can significantly cut down RFI volume and ensures quick completion of projects.
The platform can prevent delays in project completion as a result of clashes by streamlining workflows in the process. Navisworks’ Manage edition lets users detect mismatches and resolve them swiftly. This keeps users within their project budget, prevents overspending, and saves plenty of time.
Navisworks Simulate will ensure the intended designs can work well with the environment instead of against it.
The platform offers a simple yet powerful BIM 360 Glue that lets users and their collaborators share their models within the cloud for seamless access. This would lead to smoother work processes since it curbs bottlenecks resulting from some members who have difficulty accessing essential project files.
Single Model Assembly
Navisworks can help users save time by collating separate data construction and designs into one model. It does this by enabling users to utilize its model aggregation and publishing tools.
