There are chances different companies use different BIM software. So to standardize there output international federation class has been created. (IFC) . All BIM software should have valid IFC data output. So if the architect is using x software and structural engineer is using y software both can be checked for clashes using there IFC
Clashes can occur during design phase as well as construction phase of construction. Causes during design phase are related to design issues. Integrated drawings need to be created before using them for construction. Errors in construction can lead to clashes.
Search sets created in Navisworks are basically rules applied to model search. These rules could be exported and imported into new project, so they may be applied and used for clash detection.
Of course yes! Clash detection can avoid costly mistakes and delays in time line. Its obvious.
BIM 360 Glue is a cloud-based platform for Navisworks. All our files stay on cloud for live updates, review and commenting for team as well as our clients. Revit files stay on BIM 360 docs and Navis files are connected to bim 360 glue.
We check models using Autodesk Navisworks, all reports are produced in. nwf files with commenting, xml files, html files and jpeg.
We are using Revit, Tekla and Navis works for clash detection process.
For AEC disciplines there are many types of clash detection required. For architecture, door, windows, finished floor, curtain walls, architectural wall. Etc. For structure, beams, columns, foundation, reinforcements, lift shafts etc. For MEP heating systems, cooling systems, equipment’s, sprinklers etc. For Electrical panels, wires, cable trays, etc. Second is interdisciplinary clash checks like Arch vs
