Autodesk NavisWorks can be used to create a variety of animations. Its walk-through tool incorporates clash detection and replicates gravity, so the viewer doesn’t go through solid objects and can automatically move up stairs. NavisWorks is compatible with over 50 file types and used by construction firms to coordinate architectural, service and structural models. A free downloadable viewer, Freedom, allows even those who don’t have the program to review animations.
