The Autodesk Navisworks Essentials student guide instructs students in best approaches to combine 3D geometry from cross disciplines into one scene to
enable effective model reviews. Through a hands-on, practice-intensive curriculum, students acquire the knowledge needed to review and markup the model, use
TimeLiner, Animator, Scripter, Quantification, Autodesk Rendering, as well as the Clash Detective tools within the Autodesk Navisworks software. Using the functionality of the Autodesk® Navisworks® Simulate, and Manage
features, students learn how to open, review, quantify, and run object-interference checks on 3D models. Students also learn how to link to task-scheduling files and create 4D construction simulations. Using the Animator and Scripter tools, students create interactive animations. In addition, students learn how the Autodesk Rendering tools can help them create photo realistic images and animations.
Before using this student guide, students should have working knowledge of 3D design and task-scheduling software. This
student guide is designed for new and experienced Autodesk Navisworks users who need to become familiar with the
main tools within the software.
