BIM 361 – In this online Navisworks training course, you will learn to use Navisworks to integrate Revit, 3D AutoCAD and compatible software programs into a 3D Navisworks model. That Navisworks model create clash detection between various architectural, structural, MEP and fire-suppression systems. Learn the most efficient Navisworks workflow strategies to efficiently integrate various BIM models into clash detection analysis models.
Your instructor is an Autodesk Certified Instructor and is also a working professional who uses Navisworks on a daily basis and who also provides Clash Detection Services to architects, engineers and contractors.
VDCI encourages strong engagement between you, your instructor and your classmates. You will participate in group discussion forums, connect with your instructor and message your classmates. You are also invited to join us in the VDCI Student Lounge, where our instructors, staff, current students and alumni share information and help one another.
This online class will provide an introduction to using Navisworks to provide solutions for clash detection in construction projects. Students will also learn to use the project Timeliner to assess construction schedules with actual construction. Using Navisworks and Revit-provided models, students will also be able to develop 3D, animated visualizations of their Navisworks and Revit models.
In this Navisworks training course, you will receive a comprehensive introduction to the various components of Navisworks, including Navisworks 3D Modeling, the Navisworks Timeliner, the Animator and Clash Detection.
- Explore the methodologies for integrating Revit, 3D AutoCAD and compatible software programs into a 3D model which can be used to create clash detection between various structural and MEP systems.
- Apply workflow strategies for efficient use of integrating various BIM models into clash detection analysis models.
- Create timeline animations representing 4D construction modeling and scheduling.
- Produce and resolve time-based clash detection reports which will minimize on-site construction change order requests.

Free Access to the Software
While you are a student at VDCI, you will be provided free access to the software needed to participate in your course. Throughout your studies at VDCI, it is very important that you have access to good-quality Internet bandwidth with a download speed of 10 Mbps.
- Navisworks Manage
- Exploring Autodesk Navisworks
- For International Students, VDCI does not ship textbooks internationally. Please click here to obtain the ISBN number and order the book from Amazon in your home country.
Can I work at my own pace?
Yes. You can work at your own pace. Each course is 18 days long. You will have two weeks and three weekends to complete the course. There are set deliverable schedules which are addressed in the course syllabus.
Free Access to the Software
While you are a student at VDCI, you will be provided free access to the software needed to participate in your course. The software provided will either be downloaded directly onto your machine or you will access the software on one of our Virtual Servers. Throughout your studies at VDCI, it is very important that you have access to good-quality Internet bandwidth. It is also very important, if you are accessing our Virtual Servers, that you pay special attention to the MP4 and PDF guidance provided regarding saving your project files (datasets) onto your local machine.
There are two discussion forums for the course, the Student Forum and the Graded Forum.
The Student Forum is for you to interact with your fellow classmates, to discuss issues you are having, and get to know one other much like you would in a classroom environment.
The Graded Discussion Forum requires an initial post and a response to another student. These will be part of your final grade. Your initial discussion post is due Monday, one week from the beginning of class, by 11:55pm Pacific Time. Your second discussion post must be a response to another student, and it is due by the end of the course.
VDCI Student Lounge
The VDCI Student Lounge is open to all VDCI Students and Alumni. In the Student Lounge, you are welcome to ask general questions to your VDCI colleagues. Instructors and VDCI staff regularly chime in. This is a great center of engagement for our VDCI community.
Students will receive a detailed syllabus once they are enrolled in the course.
