Navisworks for Clash Detection

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. If you need to complete design projects on time and in budget, this 1-day Navisworks for Clash Detection course is your chance to gain those skills.
