Navisworks is just for clash detection, right? Nope, you can actually do some really cool stuff with Navisworks. One of the great features is the Animator Tool. This video shows you how to take your Revit design model and create a virtual Flythrough utilizing the Navisworks Animator. We will start by doing some minimal prep work in Revit by setting up views, then moving straight to Navisworks Simulate or Navisworks Manage where we will tell the software when to show each view in our animation. Navisworks will stitch the views together and create an very nice and smooth Orbit or Flythrough animation.
That didn’t take long! It seems like we just rolled out Revit® 2018 and learned all of the new improvements that came with it, and now here we are just a few months later with a whole new set of great functionality added to our favorite BIM application. Revit 2018.1 features some exciting enhancements including the ability to provide user input within the Dynamo Player interface, additional library content, enhanced Rebar for Structural Engineers, and added functionality for MEP Fabrication Parts.
Curtain walls in Revit® do not have the ability to rotate grid lines at angles after the horizontal or vertical grid has manually been placed. There is a work around for this and will demonstrate how to achieve the diagonal mullion look on a gable end curtain wall.
