Newest Release of 3D Visualization, Simulation, and Review Software
includes 3D Interoperability, Clash Detection, and Collaboration Capabilities
SAN RAFAEL, Calif., June 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --
Autodesk Navisworks 2010: - Autodesk, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADSK), a world leader
in 2D and 3D design and engineering software, announced that it is shipping
new releases of Autodesk Navisworks 2010 software for managing, simulating,
and reviewing design and engineering projects in 3D. Autodesk Navisworks 2010
provides new capabilities that manage multi-disciplinary plant design and
engineering workflows and enhance coordination across distributed teams. New
plant-relevant features include:
Clash grouping and detection - Autodesk Navisworks combines precise
faultfinding with hard, soft, clearance, and time-based clash management.
Engineers can more quickly review and cross-check geometry created by most 3D
authoring software; maintain a complete record of all clashes found throughout
a project; check time and space coordination; and resolve site and workflow
issues at the planning stage.
Multi-format support - Compatible with most major 3D design and laser scan
formats, Autodesk Navisworks can combine 3D data from multiple formats,
regardless of file size, into a comprehensive, dynamic information model,
which can be shared with all stakeholders. Autodesk is committed to providing
multi-format support and will work to provide compatibility with new file
formats as they emerge.
Collaboration - Autodesk Navisworks enables design teams across
engineering disciplines to view, annotate, expand, revise, and analyze one
comprehensive information model for informed, timely decision-making. All
project review files saved in Navisworks format are compressed, more secure,
and streamable, and can be easily viewed with the free* Navisworks viewer.
In addition to these engineering design capabilities, Autodesk Navisworks
2010 will be compatible with the forthcoming AutoCAD Plant 3D product.
Unison Engineering & Consultants GmbH, Germany
"Navisworks' point- and line-based clash detection allow us to coordinate
laser-scanned as-built environments with virtual models," said Leandros
Zeppos, managing director at Unison Engineering & Consultants, an independent
engineering company, providing a wide spectrum of engineering services for the
plant industry. "The easy visualization of 3D point-cloud models with the
integration of 3D CAD models provides a powerful design review solution for
any project. Engineering solutions can be easily analyzed against existing,
accurate on-site data."
Lenzing Technik GmbH, Austria
"Navisworks has simplified our job immensely," said Gerd Bergner, an
engineer at Lenzing Technik, a global industrial partner specializing in
Engineering and Contracting, Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Services,
and Automation and Mechatronics. "The planning and design processes needed for
steel-erection and plant-engineering work can now be combined into a single
model. As a result, the plant project can be reviewed, and those involved now
have a much better feeling for the installation they are creating."
