Course Objectives

The Clash Detective tool available in the Autodesk Navisworks Manage product enables the effective identification, inspection, comment tracking, and reporting of interference in a 3D project model. Clash Detective can eliminate a tedious manual task, with the accompanying risk of human error, to significantly reduce the expensive consequences of incomplete, inaccurate, and poorly coordinated production information. Simplify project coordination. Clash Detective will link the responsible parties to track the clash through the project lifecycle.

As a result of attending this course, you will open and append 3D files of different formats and save them in a Navisworks format, work with object properties, measuring tools, search tools, redlining, snapshot a scene, create sectional cuts, link objects, compare models, perform visual project model reviews using the built-in review and reporting tools, use real time rendering and lighting modes, identify, inspect, track and report on interference in a 3D project model, complete the course by applying your new clash detection skills to your own 3D model using your data, in an open application lab.
