Overview

Advance Steel is 3D structural steel detailing software that has parametric connection libraries, tools for plate design and flat patterns, stairs, rails, porta buildings and other types of design tools for steel fabrication.

It can be configured to automate part drawings, DXF’s and NC1 for beamline machines.

Advance Steel is based on AutoCAD and has all the tools of AutoCAD plus connects to Revit for BIM workflows, Dynamo for visual programming and Robot Structural Analysis for FEA.

Features

Parametric steel connections

Model structural steel members with connections with a customisable Advance Steel library

Stairs and cage ladders

Overview

The Autodesk AEC Industry Collection is a compilation of software titles for the architecture, engineering, construction and infrastructure industries which give the ability to 3D model, design, visualise, animate, coordinate, simulate, document and draft designs in 2D.

Create high-quality, detailed designs for building and infrastructure projects.
Optimise designs with analysis, generative design, visualisation and simulation tools.
Improve predictability in the field by coordinating and simulating projects and schedules.

The Autodesk AEC Industry Collection is a compilation of software titles for the architecture, engineering, construction and insfrastructure industries which give the ability to 3D model, design, visualise, animate, coordinate, simulate, document and draft designs in 2D.

  • Create high-quality, detailed designs for building and infrastructure projects.
  • Optimise designs with analysis, generative design, visualisation and simulation tools.
  • Improve predictability in the field by coordinating and simulating projects and schedules.

Architectural BIM Workflows

Combine Revit and Insight to improve environmental performance to guide you towards better outcomes using robust analytical tools.
Model in Revit and visualise analysis in Insight such as indicators, benchmark, ranges and specifications on factors such as infiltration, operating schedule, building orientation, lighting efficiency, HVAC, plug load efficiency, payback limit, surface coverage, panel efficiency and effect on construction materials.
Once you have viewed results, you can make design changes in Revit to optimise the building performance using comparison scenarios and viewing the results through the analytical model and produce a calculation summary report to validate design choices.
 
 

Infrastructure BIM Workflows

Combine Revit, Civil 3D and Infraworks for bridge analysis and design. Use Civil 3D road geometry to create the initial bridge and develops the design further in Infraworks using parametric rules to change the characteristics of the bridge by individually changing parameters or automate by connecting parameters to a spreadsheet to layout the bridge. Run integrated analysis and design tools to provide feedback during the optioneering phase.
 
Any changes in Civil 3D can be updated in Infraworks thereby providing connected design tools. The bridge structure can be publish to Revit and design work can continue concurrently using 3D structural design tools and 2D documentation.

Generative Design

Create generative design studies to quickly view alternate designs

Structral Design and Analysis Workflows

Combine Revit, Advance Steel and Robot to design, engineer and fabricate structural projects.

3D Scanning BIM Workflows

Pre-process point cloud data for Revit and import 3D scans and work in a hybrid reality capture BIM environment.

Design Automation Workflows

Automate routine tasks that normally take hours into minutes by running Dynamo scripts with applications such as Revit, Civil 3D, FormIT and Advance Steel .

MEP Fabrication Workflows

Connect Revit and CADmep to reduce duplication in designs allowing fabricators to create production designs and documentaion..
