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.


Parametric steel connections

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

Stairs and cage ladders

Tools for accurately modelling stairs and cage ladders with various options and settings.

Sheet metal and folded plate work

Create sheet metal and folded plate parts in 3D, flat pattern and export to DXF.

Dynamo for Advance Steel

Use Dynamo to visually program complex structures with Steel beams and plates. Assign materials, beam sections or user attributes from Dynamo to the generated elements.

Code checking and design validation

Validate and adhere to compliance against ASIC standards

Propagation of steel connections

Automated connection propagation ensures the right connection and holes are made for the correct steel member size.

General arrangement drawings

Customise GA styles, standard and camera views

Steel shop drawings

Automatically generate part drawings and DXF’s

Numerical Control (NC) data

Generate g-code for beam line machines

Steel shop drawings

Automatically generate part drawings and DXF’s

Hide or show detailed parts
