NavisWorks Online Training

Key details

Comprehensive NavisWorks training for newcomers, teaching how to combine 3D models from cross disciplines into one scene, enabling effective review and analysis.

Sessions include:

  • Generating visual project model reviews.
  • The TimeLiner – creating construction simulations of project models to check the validity of schedules.
  • Using the Animator and Scripter features to create interactive animations.
  • Using the Presenter, adding true-to-life materials, lighting and backgrounds to project models.
  • Clash detection.

This course is ideal for new users of NavisWorks Manage or NavisWorks Simulate.

NavisWorks training is most effective when it’s provided ‘on-request’, i.e. one-to-one training or a ‘closed’ course for your group. Rather than just teach you generic techniques, we can base the training on your project models, showing you specifically the work you need to do. For this reason, we don’t offer scheduled (public) NavisWorks courses.
