    Default We need a cheaper Navisworks redliner

    Summary: I know this is a manage forum but it's the only one for Navisworks...

    We need a version of Navisworks between freedom and simulate that offers redlining functionality and costs several hundreds of pounds, not several thousands for simulate.

    Description: The vast majority of people using simulate for redlining are paying a lot of money for tools they never use (timelines and presenter), and this is limiting the spred of Navisworks redlining across project teams due to the coast of simulate.

    In other words, Review. But I think that was tossed as not brining in enough revenue to justify the additional development. I'm not certain something like that could be justified at a cost significantly less than the Simulate product to get the necessary sales.

    The ability to create limited plug-ins for Freedom, on the other hand, would adress this problem while downloading most of that development work and cost on to the third-party developers.

    What about a $100 version of Freedom that could create markups and save viewpoints. Id like to see it tie in design review.

    Freedom is kind of heading that way, no longer the flyweight contender its now a little older and noticeably... erm... "chubby". Put the extended version as a free download for the Subscription holders and keep giving away a free ultra-lightweight Freedom.

    I don't recall Review ever being that cheap, and these days it's up against Autodesk's own Design Review and Tekla BIMSight, both of which offer free redlining.

    If they could add redlining to Freedom that would be even better than something costing several hundreds (obviously!) and would really put Navisworks out there with clients etc.

    The idea of it being a subscription offering is interesting, but I don't see the main target audience for this being subscription customers (or even Autodesk customers on the whole).
