This is a bespoke course, please contact us for dates




THIS IS DELIVERED IN A VIRTUAL CLASSROOM – WHAT IS A VIRTUAL CLASSROOM ? Find out more here                 http://bit.ly/2jvKJYq

With Autodesk NavisWorks designers and collaborators can unite 3D models and BIM data to create a cohesive model for virtual design and construction tasks. With this model they can create rendered visualizations that are static or animated. Scan the model for conflicts with clash detection. Or use the model for 4D planning and analysis.



This is an introductory course for architects, engineers, and construction managers who are new NavisWorks users.



Students should have working knowledge of either building information modeling or model-based design, and be comfortable using any type of scheduling software.



After completing this course, students will be able to confidently use NavisWorks, Animator, Clash Detective, Presenter, Scripter, and TimeLiner tools to create, analyze, and animate models for coordinating designs across a variety of disciplines.

      Academy Class is an excellent training centre. All the trainers are not only extremely knowledgeable about their subjects, but they are also extremely friendly and helpful. Through Academy Class’ practical teaching method, I was able to learn subjects that I thought I would never learn in less than a week! Highly recommended to anyone wishing to study a course they provide.

      I attended a 2 day bespoke course on interactive PDFs with my colleagues – it was well led, well explained, and focused around a specific project we were interested in. We really enjoyed the course, and discovered many things about the software which we had no idea about! Would definitely undertake training with Academy Class again.
