Chapter 6: Documenting Your Project

Measure objects in the model. Navisworks provides six Measure tools that allow for a variety of ways to calculate distances, areas, and angles.

Master It Which tool allows you to measure multiple points and accrue the results?

Solution The Accumulate tool allows you to calculate the sum of several point-to-point measurements.

Align models with unknown coordinates. Occasionally models are appended with different coordinate systems and do not align properly in the model.

Master It What tools are available to correct misaligned models?

Solution If the distance the model is off is known or can easily be measured, you can use the override transform function to align the model properly. However, if the distance is unknown, you can quickly align the model in place by using the Point To Point tool to locate a common point on both models and specifying the Transform Selected Items command.
