Description

Description

Collaboration in construction is challenging. How can you organise the quality in data and geometry with all these different parties and models? Which software do you use to check your model: Navisworks or Solibri? An IFC workflow with Solibri provides you with insights into the different clashes and the possibility to check in a rule-based manner. But how do you create reports and collaborate with team members? Does Navisworks manage a better workflow with more possibilities for everybody? With Navisworks you are free of file format. It is easy to append and update Revit, IFC, RCP or DWG files to a federated model in a single file. Check model geometry, duplicates, and data in a standardised way with Collaborea, the rule-based model checker for Navisworks. A report is no longer necessary because all the issues are visible and editable on a cloud platform using Autodesk Forge. Checking and collaborating becomes easy and editing the models in an Autodesk workflow is simple.
