Autodesk Advance Steel Training Fundamentals Course

Advance Steel structural steel fabrication, design and detailing software

Autodesk Advance Steel Training Fundamentals Course

The Autodesk® Advance Steel software is a powerful 3D modelling application that streamlines the fabrication process through the use of a 3D model, which is used to create fabrication drawings, Bill of Materials (BOM) lists, and files for Numerical Control (NC) machines.
Since structural steel projects are extremely complex, the Autodesk Advance Steel software is also complex. The objective of the Autodesk® Advance Steel: Fundamentals training course is to enable you to create full 3D project models at a high level of detail and set them up in fabrication drawings.
This course focuses on the basic tools that the majority of users need. You begin by learning the user interface, basic 3D viewing tools, and the standard AutoCAD® tools that are routinely used.
Specific Autodesk Advance Steel objects, including structural columns, beams, bracing, plates, bolts, anchors, welds, and additional 3D objects are also covered. You will also learn about the powerful model verification tools. To complete the course, you will learn to edit and generate all of the required documentation files that enable your design to accurately and effectively communicate the final design.
