The End of Navisworks?! (3D Coordination in the Cloud)

3D Coordination (also known as MEP Coordination or Clash Detection) is one of those things that is vital to the success of a BIM project… Did you know that it can all be done in the cloud now?! No more playing “FTP jockey” and uploading, downloading, and verifying your data is up to date… Could this be the end of Navisworks?!

In this episode of BIM After Dark Live I am going to talk about how you can take advantage of using Autodesk Model Coordinate and more efficiently coordinate your models with your consultants, sub-contractors, and more…

Topics we may cover:
– The advantages of Revit Cloud Workshared Models on ACC / BIM 360
– Taking advantage of “views”.
– Understanding the “Clash Matrix”
– Filtering Views, reviewing clashes, and navigating the viewer…
– And more….

Of course, I’ll be taking your questions along the way…
