About Navistools IFC Extension

The Navistools IFC Extension is a simple low-cost Autodesk Navisworks add-on which brings real benefits when using IFC files in a Navisworks Project. The Navistools IFC Extension comprises of a simple user interface that enables the user to load an associated IFC file and then view the full IFC hierarchy in an easy to read format.

Objects can be selected from the IFC hierarchy which is then referenced in the Navisworks model and selection tree.

The Navistools IFC extension also contains its own reporting tool for easy generation of custom IFC reports including quantity calculations which can then be output to a variety of file formats including Excel, PDF and csv files.

The Navistools IFC Extension is especially beneficial in BIM and Plant projects where IFC is the current preferred or only format available to import data from specific CAD tools into Autodesk Navisworks.

Using IFC models effectively in Navisworks work process

Reading IFC models into Autodesk Navisworks and including them as a part of the QA/QC and collaboration processes has been possible since the early version of Autodesk Navisworks. More recently in later releases there has been increased support of the IFC format in line with the increased usage of IFC as the standard format used in BIM projects.

IFC property data can be viewed using Navisworks properties but the structure and hierarchy of the full IFC data model can be difficult to read. It is also very difficult to generate custom reports of this IFC property data.Using the Navistools IFC Extension all project stakeholders can easily view and generate reports based on IFC properties form the Autodesk Navisworks project.

Benefits in using Naviswork in QA/QC process of a BIM project

Autodesk Navisworks software can be used as a QA/QC tool in both AEC, Infrastructure and Process Plant, where multiple formats of data can be aggregated to enable project management and collaboration throughout the entire life-cycle of a project. This data can include native CAD data, point cloud data from laser scanned as-built projects and standard industry formats such as IFC for BIM projects.

Today there is a common requirement to include point cloud data from laser-scans into the QA/QC process especially in renovation and refit projects. Autodesk Navisworks is the ideal tool to undertake this as it support multi CAD native formats, all the commonly used laser scan data formats and the BIM standard IFC format.

It has been shown that the most effective way to run the QA/QC process in renovation and refit projects is to use also the actual as-build data together with the design data and verify that the new design works in this environment.

The increased information display and reporting facilities included in the Navistools IFC extension improves the user experience when working with IFC data in a multi format BIM project and adds value to users needing to access full project information.

In combination with the Navistools project portal and the point-cloud management and visualization of Navistools Pointcloud, the Navistools IFC extension offers even more value to all BIM project stakeholders using Autodesk Navisworks
