  • Incorporate files in many major 2D and 3D design or laser scan file formats
  • Integrate all project models, even the largest data sets
  • Read intelligent data from original design files and view it beside the model
  • Import live data from external databases and display it within the model
Whole-Project Review
The review toolkit offers tools that facilitate review of all aspects of your project
  • Measure distances, areas, and angles
  • Store, organize, and share camera views of a design and export them into images or reports
  • Add cross sections and section plans to inspect details closely
  • Use NWF reference files to view the latest version of a CAD design while maintaining previous review data
  • Open current model and viewpoint in many original design software packages
  • Automate tasks or extend functionality using extensive APIs (application programming interface)
NWD and DWF Publishing

Model Simulation and Analysis

5D Project Scheduling Includes Time and Cost
Simulate construction project scheduling in 5D to visually communicate and analyze project activities and minimize delays and sequencing problems
  • Verify building or demolition viability by developing construction or demolition sequences that link model geometry to times and dates
  • Import times, dates, costs, and other task data from project management software to dynamically link schedules with project models
  • Set up planned and actual times to visualize deviations from the project schedule
  • Export 5D simulations as AVI animations or sequential images
  • Customize simulation behavior and overlay text
  • Use CSV Import/Export for two-way interoperability with other applications
  • Copy and paste dates from spreadsheets and specialist planning tools
  • Use tools to associate geometry and tasks quickly and easily
Photorealistic Model Rendering
Use photorealistic model rendering capabilities to develop compelling 3D animations and imagery for project presentations
  • Customize and configure every render aspect, including materials, lights, backgrounds, and rendering styles
  • Use environmental backgrounds to add real-world scenery
  • Choose from more than 1,000 built-in materials to create a photorealistic look
  • Add rich photorealistic content (RPC), such as people and trees, to scenes
  • Add smooth shadows and natural lighting with HDRI lighting
  • Use real-time shaders that support the OpenGL 2.0 shader language for real-time lighting and shadows
