With Advance Concrete 2011 Service Pack 1, most functions’ speed was significantly increased compared to the 2010 version. Among these improvements:
| Start up speed
The Startup speed is significantly improved. With SP1, AC starts ~3.5 times faster than AC 2010.
| Loading files
The time to load an existing file decreased with SP1. Loading a file is 2 to 3 times faster than in AC2010 (the effect is even more visible with large files!).
| Creating a new AC DWG file
Creating a new empty AC DWG file is ~10 times faster than AC2010.
| Creating reinforcement drawings
The reinforcement drawing creation is ~3.5 times faster than in AC2010.
The performance test was performed with several basic structural elements with predefined reinforcement styles.
| Reinforcement list update
The reinforcement list update speed is ~3 times faster than in AC2010.
| Export drawings and layouts to DWG
Export up to 20 types of views and layouts ~1.5 times faster than in AC2010.
