Real-Time Navigation, Real-Time Experience

  • Use advanced navigation tools such as gravity and solid object recognition


The process of measuring quantities of materials from models, drawings, and specifications prepared by architects, engineers, and other designers is known as take-off. In the Autodesk Navisworks software, take-off is carried out using the Quantification feature. Quantification gives you the tools to automatically create material estimates, measure areas and count components.

You can accurately estimate construction and renovation projects, and spend less time counting and measuring items and more time analysing projects.

  • Quantification overview within Navisworks
  • Setting up a quantification project
  • Item and resource management
  • Model and virtual take-off
  • Managing take-off data
