The demo utilizes a laser scanned – point cloud survey in Advance Steel 2015 / AutoCAD 2015 to create a highly accurate structural / mechanical 3D model and also the related automated parametric documentation.
Some of the advanced techniques which were covered in this demo are:
- Switching the ribbon interface to unlock the power of AutoCAD 2015;
- Utilising Point Filters
- Using Custom Connections;
- Quickly importing a complex 3D solid from a crane vendor by converting the 3D solid into a native Advance Steel ‘Special Part’.
The mechanical Special Part works with Advance Steel Clash Check, documentation and BOM lists.
The laser point cloud is parametrically XREFerenced into the Advance Steel general arrangement drawing to create a hybrid view. The complete drawing package is batch plotted in a couple of clicks.
