Autodesk Navisworks Manage lets you reliably share, combine and review detailed 3D design models from multiple file formats. Clash Detection tools let you analyze interferences in a single model environment to find faults before they become problems. Real-time visualization and simulation allow you to validate design performance and reduce waste. 

Autodesk Navisworks software solutions enable project design, engineering, construction, and manufacturing professionals to unite contributions into a single building or process plant model. 

Architecture, Engineering & Construction Overview

The Autodesk Navisworks software family comprises three 3D design project review products and one free* viewer application to help you and your extended teams experience enhanced control and confident collaboration on your most complex projects:
Autodesk Navisworks Manage software 
Autodesk Navisworks Simulate software 
Autodesk Navisworks Review software 
Autodesk Navisworks Freedom software—free* viewer application

By combining the high-quality 3D design data created by AutoCAD® software, Revit-based applications, and Autodesk® Inventor® software with geometry and data from other design tools, Autodesk Navisworks project review products enable a dynamic real-time, whole-project view for:
Effective 3D coordination analysis 
4D planning simulation 
Accurate photorealistic visualization
The aggregated whole-project view can be published in both Autodesk Navisworks native NWD format and 3D

Autodesk Navisworks Manage
Autodesk Navisworks Manage software is a comprehensive project review solution for design, engineering, and construction management professionals seeking powerful insight and predictability to improve productivity and quality. Autodesk Navisworks Manage software provides all the tools required for smooth-running engineering and construction projects.

Consistent, Coordinated, Correct
Integrating the functionality of both Autodesk Navisworks Review and Autodesk Navisworks Simulate with powerful clash detection capabilities, Autodesk Navisworks Manage provides the most complete Navisworks design project review solution. Navisworks Manage adds precise fault-finding analysis and interference management to the dynamic 4D project schedule simulation and photorealistic visualization of Autodesk Navisworks Simulate. Enabling consistent, coordinated, and correct construction documentation, Navisworks Manage streamlines workflow across your organization and extended teams, helping to reduce waste, increase efficiency, and significantly reduce change orders.

Through effective identification, inspection, and reporting of potential interferences in a 3D project model, Navisworks Manage reduces error-prone manual checking. Navisworks Manage enables users to check time and space coordination, improving site and workflow planning. Control and peace of mind are enhanced through automated coordination analysis of 3D designs. Early fault prediction and error recognition help to prevent costly miscalculations. Combine all your 3D data, regardless of file size, from multiple formats into a faithful facility model for viewing and analyzing all digital information. 
Navisworks Manage combines precise fault-finding with hard and clearance clash management. Quickly review and cross-check geometry created by competing 3D design software. Maintain a complete and valuable record of all interferences found throughout your project. Check for time and space coordination and virtually eliminate workflow issues at the planning stage. Point and line-based clashing enable coordination of a laser-scanned as-built environment with the virtual model.

Faster Navigation and Checking
Real-time visualization enables fast navigation and review of complex 3D models and all the project information they contain. Use Navisworks Manage to effectively explore your designs without the need for preprogrammed animation, advanced hardware, or special skills.

Autodesk Navisworks Simulate 
Autodesk Navisworks Simulate software adds the dynamic power of 4D scheduling and photorealism to Autodesk Navisworks Review software. The value of existing design data is extended to create clear descriptive content that demonstrates design intent and simulates construction to drive insight and predictability. When you can virtually experience your project in a visual context before the physical work begins, you can evaluate and verify the materials and textures appropriate to your intended design.

Autodesk Navisworks Review
Autodesk Navisworks Review software extends access to existing design data for real-time visualization and collaborative review, regardless of file size or format. Dynamic navigation and intuitive review tools make it easy to understand even the most complex 3D models. Entire project models can be published and viewed in NWD and 3D DWF file formats to provide valuable digital assets during and after construction.

Autodesk Navisworks Freedom
Autodesk Navisworks Freedom software is the free* viewer application for Autodesk Navisworks NWD and 3D DWF™ files. With Autodesk Navisworks project review products, you can combine design data regardless of file size or format and publish a whole-project view. Navisworks Freedom and NWD files give stakeholders better access to whole-project views.

Autodesk Navisworks software for manufacturing, part of the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping, helps you to experience your factory before it's built.

The real-time navigation features of Autodesk® Navisworks® software for manufacturing, part of the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping, help you to experience your factory before it is built. You can combine product, tooling, fixture, layout, and facilities data from different CAD systems and create a single 3D digital model of your factory. Then, analyze the model to check for collisions, identify space constraints, and create 4D simulations of your factory models that include the installation of equipment on the factory floor . Publish the digital factory model in a highly detailed but lightweight format and share it with suppliers and partners to give all stakeholders complete access to the information.

Visualizing Factory Floor Layouts: Does your company have difficulty visualizing large factory floor layouts because data comes from different CAD and laser-scan file formats?

Checking Layouts: Do you need to check factory floor layouts for interferences, collisions, and space constraints?

Coordinating Projects: Do you need to link model geometry to project times and dates and coordinate the installation of equipment and work-cells on the factory floor?
