Naviate Simple BIM

Naviate® is Symetri´s own product portfolio with localised solutions for Autodesk’s products.

Easy to use IFC data and workflow

Building information models contain a large amount of information that is of great value also to other actors in a building project, but there are currently several technical and process-related problems in the way.

With Naviate Simple BIM®, you can change this. Now, you can easily create models that only contain the information needed for a specific task.

Professional management of BIM information
One requirement of data exchange within the building industry is that the information being managed is reliable and quality assured. Naviate Simple BIM® is a BIM editor that gives you the simple but powerful tools you need to manage BIM for professional quality data exchange.

Only manage relevant information
Unnecessary information causes unnecessary problems. With Naviate Simple BIM®, you trim the model by removing objects and properties that are not necessary or reliable. This not only reduces the size of the IFC model (by up to 90%) but also makes the IFC model more reliable. Furthermore you always know exactly what is in the models you manage, as Naviate Simple BIM® gives you a preview of the objects and properties to be exported.

Follow the correct BIM grammar
In a BIM workflow that exchanges IFC-related information, you must use grammar that is understood by the receiving program. BIM grammar differs for different applications, for example quantity calculations, interference control or energy analysis. The minimum requirement is that the correct setup and properties for every object type are included.

Naviate Simple BIM® has the tools to ensure that the grammar is correct, and there are templates for exporting to other systems such as, for example, energy analysis software.

Export better IFC files
When you have finished editing your IFC file, you can save the edited model from Naviate Simple BIM® to a new, enhanced IFC file. This means that you only exchange data that are relevant and approved in the exported model. In most cases, the size of the new IFC file is only a fraction of that of the original file and the file is imported much faster and more cleanly in the receiving program.
