Software training firm Infinite Skills Inc. last week introduced its "Learning Autodesk Navisworks Tutorial," an introductory course teaching basic skills and the most important features for using this project review software in professional architectural, engineering, and construction practice.
The primary features of Navisworks enable the coordination, construction simulation, and whole-project analysis for integrated project review. The program's advanced tools can simulate models, help optimize scheduling, analyze clashes and interferences, and facilitate collaboration.
Infinite Skills Learning Autodesk Navisworks Training Tutorial introduces new users to the basic navigation and tool sets along with some of the most popular advanced features, allowing design professionals to begin using the program in a matter of hours.
Course author Brian Myers has been working in Autodesk for more than two decades, starting in version 9 in 1989. He has been working professionally with Navisworks Manage for the last seven years. Myers was one of the first certified instructors for Revit Architecture. His training practice extends to most of the Autodesk line of programs, including Navisworks and Revit. He currently uses Navisworks as a BIM manager at a large engineering firm. Myers is the founder of Revit Users, a Revit support community found on LinkedIn.
Here, Myers teaches a fundamental understanding of the Navisworks interface and provides a solid basis in its most popular features.
The course starts with the user interface, explaining Navisworks workspaces, file formats, and essentials such as merging projects, refreshing and deleting files, navigation, selection, and more.
From there, Myers provides an overview of commonly used Navisworks tools, including hiding and moving objects, object properties, measure tools, viewpoints, animation recording, sections, and more.
Other chapters look in-depth at popular advanced features, including working with the timeliner in order to configure and export simulations, producing quantity takeoff reports, and creating and rendering animations using materials, mapping, lighting, and cameras.
"Navisworks is the industry standard for reviewing design data created for multiple design applications," Myers explains.
"In this series, we'll cover the best practices for popular Navisworks features to get you up and running as soon as possible."
