Naviate Core/MEP/Fabrication provides commands and features for automating project setup, model management, modeling efficiencies, and documentation processes for all disciplines.

General Usage Instructions

Naviate Core has features to streamline project setup, model management, and documentation. For easy project setup, you can use the Naviate Scopebox Manager to copy and update scopeboxes from linked models and then setup all your level-based views with the Sheet View Manager's configuration settings. Once your project is setup, you can quickly update project data using the Naviate Extract & Update features to perform roundtrip data updating utilizing Microsoft Excel. Quickly put together your documentation set by using the Naviate Sheet View manager to create, place, and align views and Sheets. You can then add tags with the Naviate tagging feature which allows you to specify tag placement locations and offsets relative to your elements. Lastly, use the Naviate Revision manager to add/remove multiple revisions from multiple sheets and create print sets of your revised sheets.

Naviate MEP allows you to streamline the design and coordination of MEP elements in 2D & 3D. Rapidly fit out rooms by blooming MEP runs from MEP smart connectors for any selected equipment or fixtures using the Naviate Bloom command. With Naviate Elbow commands, you can quickly route duct, pipe, conduit, or cable tray. Where MEP systems are clashing, you can now easily route around, under and over those elements with Naviate Reroute commands. Connecting and aligning elements in 3D is easier than ever when equipped with the many commands and features of Naviate MEP.

Naviate Fabrication seamlessly augments the design, modeling, and detailing workflows necessary for Fabrication. Naviate Fabrication contains many of the modeling efficiencies and workflows that MEP provides, but is specifically generated to work with ITM parts. This includes the Elbow routing & Bloom features mentioned earlier along with several others. Beyond the modeling stage, Naviate FAB universally assists detailers by automatically placing ITM or RFA hangers and sleeves with their associated total station points. BIMrx Fabrication carries the user to the end of the project providing an automatic spooling workflow that again works with both ITMs & RFAs. Modeling & Documenting in fabrication projects has never been easier with Naviate Fabrication.
