IDS and SMART Design Plug-In for Autodesk Navisworks Manage [June 2012]

IDS Engineering and SMART Technologies Inc. announced the release of the idsDesignTOUCH Autodesk Navisworks Manage plug-in for SMART Board. The plug-in gives Autodesk Navisworks Manage users the ability to control and edit Navisworks files directly on SMART’s interactive displays, which architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) firms are increasingly using to facilitate communication and problem solving during coordination reviews.
Autodesk Navisworks Manage integrates data from multiple sources to facilitate whole project review and coordination and to simulate construction. The software, a leading Building Information Modeling (BIM) review tool, is used in conjunction with SMART’s interactive displays to show design clashes and identify the preferred corrective action. Such reviews are critical for catching design deficiencies that may be prohibitively expensive to rectify later in the construction schedule. The idsDesignTOUCH Autodesk Navisworks Manage plug-in for SMART Board creates better integration between Navisworks Manage and SMART’s interactive displays, enabling improved coordination between AEC project teams.
“The use of Autodesk Navisworks with SMART’s interactive displays enables efficient and effective on-site coordination of complex construction projects,” says Josh Newland, Senior Project Engineer, XL Construction Corporation. “With SMART’s interactive displays, we can instantly highlight clashes on technical drawings and make changes directly on the working document to quickly develop solutions. They are an ideal tool for collaborative team sessions, increasing productivity and efficiency and significantly saving costs on our projects.”
