Description

The Autodesk® Navisworks® Essentials course 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 photorealistic images and animations.

Course Objectives:

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 photorealistic images and animations.

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Describe the main features and functionality of the Autodesk® Navisworks® software.
  • Open and append 3D files of different formats and save in the Autodesk Navisworks format.
  • Create links to object properties files and scheduling files in external databases.
  • Perform visual project model reviews using the built-in review and reporting tools.
  • Create construction simulations of a project model to check validity of construction schedules.
  • Use Animator and Scripter to create interactive animations for presentations and demonstrations.
Topics Covered:
  • Autodesk 3ds Max Interface and Workflow
  • Assembling Files by importing, linking, or merging
  • 3D Modeling with Primitives and 2D objects
  • Using Modifiers to create and modify 3D objects
  • Materials and Maps
  • Autodesk 3ds Max Lighting
  • Working with Cameras and Exposure Control
  • Rendering using various renderers such as Scanline, ART, and Arnold
  • Animation for Visualization

Who should attend:

This course is designed for new and experienced Autodesk Navisworks users.

Prerequisites:
  • 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.
