Navisworks Keyboard Shortcuts for blazing fast clash reviews using Autohotkey. Note that the Num Lock must be turned off for this to work!

Navisworks Keyboard Shortcuts Included in the zip file is the executable, the autohotkey source code if you want to customize this to your liking and a pdf that shows what the shortcuts are.

Most of the shortcuts are self explanatory but they do some very handy things.

0 – sets the clash to Reviewed and brings up the assign to dialog assign is a great tool to organize your clash reports and add comments for sending out to subs

1 – sets the clash to Reviewed and then automatically moves on to the next clash my clash reports only contain clashes set to Reviewed, in my world Active means it still needs to be reviewed

2 – moves to the next clash in the list without changing the status

3 – set the clash to Approved and moves to the next clash

4 – selects the clashing object in the left side of clash detective and zooms to that object

5 – full screen if you have 2 monitors I recommend putting Navisworks on the second monitor, this way when you use full screen it puts the full screen view on the left monitor and leaves all you tool palletes open on the right monitor

6 – selects the clashing object in the right side of clash detective and zooms to that object

7 – selects the clashing object in the left side of clash detective and turns on the select filter the select filter is a great way to quickly slim down the number of clashes, if you dont use it then go learn it now!

8 – moves to the previous clash without changing the status

9 – selects the clashing object in the right side of clash detective and turns on the select filter.

. – focus on the overall clash this is great if you get lost in your model

/ – Sets navigation to classic walk mode – sets navigation to classic orbit

– – sets the clash view to Dim other

+ – sets the clash view to Hide Other

If you use other programs while using Navisworks you can simply turn Num Lock back on and this shouldnt affect any other programs.I hope this proves to be useful for everyone and I hope it inspires others to share the tools they have developed. I believe sharing is important to move us all forward as a group. Please provide feedback and any other ideas you may have to improve the
