Top 10 New Features in NavisWorks® 2010

1. Interoperability:

Autodesk Navisworks continues its commitment to support the latest versions of design applications, including non-Autodesk products and laser scanning formats. Upgrades to the Revit exporters include support for shared coordinates, rebars, and True North.

The following is a list of updated File Readers and exporters:

  • AutoCAD® software, AutoCAD® Architecture software, AutoCAD® MEP software, AutoCAD® Civil 3D® software
  • Autodesk® Revit Architecture software, Autodesk® Revit ® Structure software, Autodesk® Revit® MEP software
  • Autodesk® Inventor® software
  • Autodesk® 3ds Max® software
  • JT Open
  • CIS/2
  • Graphisoft ArchiCAD 12
  • Faro

A full 64-bit version of Autodesk Navisworks Manage provides users with access to the increased performance and memory available from 64-bit operating systems. This provides the opportunity to handle even larger project datasets.

Autodesk Navisworks fully supports the following operating systems:

  • Windows® XP software: 32-bit versions and 64-bit versions
  • Windows Vista® software: 32-bit version and 64-bit versions

2. Clash Detective:

You can now group clash results into folders to simplify the management of related clashes. The group can be dealt with as a single issue, while retaining an audit of each individual clash. A Group Clashes Involving Item option is available to automatically create a new group for all clashes involving the selected item. Clash reports support the new clash group functionality. Using the View In Context button, the camera will automatically transition from the clash location to a chosen vantage point "outside" of the model, allowing you to orientate yourself. The camera will then transition back into the clash location. Along with making the the new Transparent Dimming display option, this allows you to visually locate the clash within the surrounding model. You can now automatically transition to the next clash result rather than jumping straight to the next clash through the View In Context feature, thereby allowing you to keep track of your updated location. A new Reviewed clash status has been added to clearly identify those clashes that require a design change or need to be discussed with relevant trades, before being able to Approve or Resolve the clash.

3. TimeLiner:

CSV files created from external applications, such as Microsoft®Excel® software, can be linked from the Navisworks TimeLiner module. Any schedules created in TimeLiner, or modifications to linked schedules can now be exported to the common CSV format. This provides the opportunity for that data to be imported into other applications. In addition, you can now copy and paste TimeLiner dates to other tasks, or to other applications such as Microsoft Excel. The same selection of objects can also be attached to multiple tasks. This allows you to simulate multiple operations that need to be preformed, when only a single geometry source exists. Take a wall, for example, this may be modeled as a single object whereas it may be constructed of an inner and outer wall, insulation, drywall, and a finishing layer. This feature allows all of these tasks to be siulated on a single piece of geometry.
