Overview

BIM 361 – Learn to use Navisworks to 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.

This course 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.

Students will be given a comprehensive introduction to the various components of Navisworks; including 3D Modeling, the Timeliner, the Animator and Clash Detection.


Learning Objectives

  • 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.

Intended Audience

The course is primarily designed for architects, interior designers, engineers, and others involved in the construction industry looking for an overview of building information modeling (BIM) using Navisworks.


Grading

Class participants will receive a grade based on their competency proven in the assessments (quizzes and tests) and their participation in the discussion forums.

Class grades will be determined by the total number of points achieved in the following categories:


Reading Assessments 20%
Discussion Forums 10%
Midterm 20%
Final 50%

Final grades are determined using the following scale:


Letter Grade Percent Grade Points
A+ 98 - 100 4.00
A 94 - 97 3.67
A- 90 - 93 3.50
B+ 87 - 89 3.33
B 83 - 86 3.00
B- 80 - 82 2.67
C+ 77 - 79 2.33
C 73 - 76 2.00
C- 70 - 72 1.67
D+ 67 - 69 1.33
D 63 - 66 1.00
D- 60 - 62 0.67
F 0 - 59 0.00

The weighted values will be summed into total points achieved.


Open Labs

Open labs are available for use in completing homework assignments and for additional "practice time" for all of our students who are within a convenient driving distance of our San Diego campus.

There is an additional cost for technical support setting up your computer system loading the Autodesk software, if you need that additional support. Please contact our Program Manager at 619-758-9300 or learn@vdci.edu to receive that information.


Certification / Accreditation

  • Autodesk Course e-certificate: The VDCI onsite and online courses are approved by Autodesk.
  • cadteacher/VDCI is an Authorized Autodesk Training Center (ATC).
  • State of California Approval - Our individual courses, training bundles and technology certificate programs are approved by the State of California's Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) for both online and onsite learning.
  • National Accreditation - Our individual courses, training bundles and technology certificate programs are nationally accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education and Training (ACCET). All of our courses are regulated and reviewed by the U.S. Department of Education (DOE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
  • Autodesk Professional Certification Exams: For many of their software programs, Autodesk offers User and Professional Certification Exams which test your skills and knowledge. VDCI strongly encourages our students to take the exams and to become Certified Autodesk Professionals. As an Autodesk Certified Professional, you can enhance your credibility and can accelerate your professional development. Many employers insist on hiring Autodesk Certified Professionals.

Downloads

Free Access to the Software

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.

Discussion Forums

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.
