With the Group Clashes tool, grouping any number of clashes is simplified by selecting any combination of the predefined grouping options. Removing the need to manually group your individual clashes.

Run your Navisworks Clash Detective as you normally would, then click the Group Clashes command.

Select the clash test you wanted grouped and then define the grouping mode. Any combination is achievable and will give different results. Click the Group button to automatically group your individual clashes. Once the clashes are grouped any manual modifications can be done. Click the Ungroup button to disassemble the groups and select a new grouping mode if need be.

Once grouped, we can simply run the Clashes to Issue command in Newforma Konekt as we normally would and import the clash test results.

If certain clashes are not grouped when you use the grouping tool, it means they did not meet your specific grouping criteria. You are able to group the remaining issues by a new grouping method. There is no limit to how many times a clash group is grouped.

It is very important to define the criteria for grouping your clashes before publishing them to Newforma Konekt. Once clashes have been published, it is not advisable to group the same conflicts again, otherwise duplicate questions will be created.
