NavisWorks3 has a plug in architecture with the enhanced Roamer3
at its core. The new NavisWorks3 Roamer now includes the ability
to open native 3D CAD files. This is a fundamental change in response
to market demand. Our research confirmed that most professional
CAD users highly value the ability to visualize and conduct design
review of the native CAD file and that is what we now offer them.
The additional functionality will now be available in a range of
NavisWorks3 plug-in components. Each NavisWorks3 plug-in must be
paired with a Roamer3 and a single Roamer3 can support any configuration
of plug-in components.
Roamer3 is the core of NavisWorks3 because no plug-in will work
Roamer3 is the core of NavisWorks3 and clearly positioned as the
entry level of our design review solution. Roamer3 will satisfy
the normal design review needs of the design project professional.
Roamer3 has considerable improvements in design review functionality
in addition to the inclusion of all native CAD file importers and
exporters. Features that aid understanding of the model and the
object information it may contain have been introduced and enhanced.
There are now Unlimited Hyperlinks that can be associated
with an object and the links are enhanced with Text Tags with lines
attaching them to the link. The hyperlink enhancement in NavisWorks3
allows simple file link management to any type of file and URL.
Text Tag prompts sign post the way and make the model easier to
Object Property Support is improved and Smart Tags now appear when
the cursor hovers over object information. The new Smart Tags display
the detail information as text and further improves understanding
of the model. The Smart Tags feature is controlled under Global
Options which has been enlarged and enhanced to make it easy to
set up NavisWorks3 to control personal needs/preferences.
A Selection Box has been introduced and the Tree Selection and Find
Items tools have been improved to create powerful search tools.
It is now much easier to quickly locate and therefore visualize
and review any part of a model.
Cross Sectioning has been improved so that up to six planes can
be selected and combined helping focus on specific areas of interest
in the model. Recognition of Units has been added and we have introduced
support for .DWG and .DGN 2D information as Lines, Points and Planes.
The Animation Interface in Roamer3 now has a Time Slider and a drop
down view on existing animations which combine to make it simpler
to use and animations even quicker to make.
Publisher3 has the defined role of publishing the compact and secure
Our proprietary file format offers a standard for design communication.
The focus of Publisher3 enhancement has been security so published
NavisWorks3 .NWD files can be password protected and carry author
credit and copyright information.
Presenter3 introduces photo-realistic rendering and delivers what
so many potential users have wanted from us since our first product
The photo-realistic images that Presenter3 will be capable of producing
have a WOW factor that shout for themselves. The images created
using out Library demonstration model here and at the top of this
page clearly show the power of Presenter3.
NavisWorks3 Clash Detective
The fast interference checking capabilities that Clash Detective
adds to Roamer3 delivers a clear Return on Investment business.
In one particular UK test project the value of reworking and delay
that was avoided by using NavisWorks Clash Detective was estimated
as £600,000 [almost 10% of the contract sum]. NavisWorks3
Clash Detective is faster and easier to use than any competing product
and ensures maximum productivity with extensive reporting capabilities
that we have improved to meet customer demand.
The reporting of interferences in Clash Detective3
has been enhanced with the ability to write reports as .HTML text
and graphics. It will be easier to see clashes as textual as well
as graphical information for rapid location and resolution. Discovered
clashes can also now be saved as viewpoints which can be reviewed
with stand alone Roamer3.
