Coordination with below ground structure and services designed in other modelling packages are obvious requirements, as well as the need to place our below ground drainage design in the all-encompassing centralised data model which “BIM” is so reliant upon.
We provide this facility with Navisworks products. Navisworks is a project review application concentrating on integrating, sharing and reviewing models from a multitude of AEC design platforms. It is possible to export C3D pipe networks to a format acceptable to Navisworks that will enable the possibility of hosting a drawing which contains our below ground drainage and other construction designs such as foundations and super structure. Within Navisworks you can then review your below ground drainage design in the context of the entire construction project. Clash detection is a notable advantage of this.
