Interactive Clash Management

Clashes happen. That's an unavoidable fact. The question is how long does it take to resolve them?

Fuzor's Interactive Clash analysis lets you check for interferences and proximity tolerances. Select buildings, systems or object types to check against each other, set your tolerance, and run your clash check. Fuzor will list out all discovered clashes based on your set criteria and list them in the clash interface. Clicking on any clash in the list will jump to that clash and highlight the clashing objects. For added visual clarity you can switch render modes, highlight active cashes, and isolate all clashes.

The Interactive Clash Management interface will designate which clashes have been viewed, which have not, and which ones have been resolved. The interface also provides tag, due date, priority, asignee, and other fields for administrative purposes. If the clashing systems are under your purview, you can resolve those clashes from within the Clash Management interface. If they are not, Fuzor's Clash Manager lets you generate HTML and PDF reports that can be delivered to the responsible parties

With Fuzor's Live Link, clash resolution can be done immediately. By making an adjustment to a live-linked file while your clash check is active, multiple clashes can be resolved simultaneously. In addition, if any new clashes are created, they will be immediately added to the clash list.

This works well for Revit and ARCHICAD Files. However, Not all files are created equal. Does your current software have the ability to run clash checks across multiple file types? Fuzor does. Bring together multiple file types and check those files against each other for clash issues.

Firms such as General Contractors often get their files in multiple formats. Architects deliver SketchUp and Revit files. HVAC and plumbing subs send Navisworks files. With Fuzor, the GC can bring these together for unified site coordination review, then run clash checks of the Navisworks HVAC and Plumbing systems against the Architect's Revit Structural files. Once complete, they can generate a report, send it to their subcontractors, get a revised file and simply merge it in and reactivate the saved clash check to see if all issues have been resolved.

Under other circumstances, the architect may be designing the the MEP in house. If the clash check indicates that they need to make a correction, the architect can move a pipe or duct to resolve a clash, and sync that change back to Revit. Revit will recognize the change, realign the piping or HVAC run and send that back to Fuzor, immediately resolving additional related clashes.
