The Switchback tool used in Revit for Navisworks can form an integral part of any Design/Model review process during the project life cycle. Using the model as the primary source of all design reviews can help the actual reviews themselves become far more interactive, intuitive and not just a case of “Reviewing and marking up paper drawings”.
As well as using the powerful review/clash detective tools in Navisworks you can review the model and any changes needed or suggested can be applied directly back into the Revit model “live” as the review progress. You can then see what effect these changes have and if agreed they can be “kept” back in the Revit model without the need for masses of updates to paper drawings. This allows for a far better informed design review which captures the intent of the design as the project changes and progress.
