Autodesk Launches New Model Coordination Workflow Between Two Flagship Products, Navisworks and Bim

Autodesk | September 23, 2020

Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) today announced it has launched a new model coordination workflow between two of its flagship products, Navisworks and BIM 360 Model Coordination, both of which are widely used by architects, engineers and construction teams. The new integration further strengthens Autodesk Construction Cloud by enabling construction teams to manage the entire model coordination workflow including clash detection and issues management in a common data environment from within a single solution. Customers can now take advantage of both Navisworks and BIM 360 Model Coordination's best-in-class capabilities to improve the quality of construction documents, save time, decrease schedule risk and reduce rework. Before a construction project breaks ground, Navisworks empowers general contractors to identify and resolve clash and constructability issues, and BIM 360 Model Coordination enables design and trade partners to create, track and self-check issues that arise during the model coordination process. Now, users can automate clash detection in BIM 360 Model Coordination, as well as create and assign issues from either Navisworks or BIM 360. This new workflow enhances existing coordination workflows for Navisworks users and empowers BIM 360 Model Coordination users to do more specific clash detection and analysis in Navisworks.

The ground level will house business space and an anteroom. The subsequent level will contain a wellness room, local area room, the board workplaces, and a huge open yard. The site contains a local area garden and a youngsters' play region.
