GRAITEC, an international BIM and CAD software developer for AEC, and Autodesk® Platinum Partner in US and across Europe, is pleased to announce that Autodesk® Advance Steel 2017 and Autodesk® Advance Concrete 2017 are now available from Autodesk.
Autodesk® Advance Steel 2017 provides new features and enhancements to help improve productivity and usability whilst creating your fabrication documents more easily with tools to support a connected BIM workflow.
With new connections and profiles for international suppliers, more tools for cleaner documentation, options to manage Fabrication status data, and the ability to synchronise not just the structure but also the fully parametric steel connections with Revit, not to mention the ability to publish, share and collaborate with BIM360 using native Advance Steel drawing format – and whilst remaining connected to the source Advance Steel 3D model, Autodesk® Advance Steel 2017 delivers a more mature solution to create better coordinated designs and documentation.
Whilst Autodesk® Advance Concrete 2017 provides a more robust environment for completing and detailing concrete projects with links to Autodesk® Revit® for enhanced BIM centric workflow that supports an end-to-end solution.
Advance Steel is complimented with the GRAITEC PowerPack adding more functionality and further automating common repetitive tasks. PowerPack for Advance Steel can be downloaded directly from the Autodesk App Store as a free trial.
Other complementary solutions for Advance Steel available from GRAITEC include:
- Steel Structure Designer – Create, adjust and configure complete structures of all shapes and sizes in minutes.
- Ball Post Railing Designer – Adding ball post railings in Advance Steel is quick and simple with this dedicated ball post railing app.
Complimentary Reinforced Concrete design and detailing tools from GRAITEC include:
- PowerPack for Revit – over 40 new tools dedicated to reinforced concrete modelling, editing and documentation.
Carl Spalding, Product Strategy Director comments: “It is clear BIM is transforming how teams collaborate and build their projects across the globe. The Autodesk 2017 products are certainly ahead of the curve in delivering solutions to support their user’s needs for BIM centric workflows. This is evident from the harmonised structural steel workflows possible between Revit and Advance Steel dramatically reducing the initial design and rework effort for steel modelling and detailing.”
Carl continues “But this is just the tip of the iceberg. The biggest trend we are experiencing comes from the concrete sector frantically looking to replace traditional 2D detailing systems, which often break the BIM to fabrication workflow causing inevitable bottlenecks, with practical BIM-centric reinforced concrete solutions. The new reinforcement capability in Autodesk 2017 products, combined with complementary Add-ons and Apps from Graitec, demonstrate our commitment to delivering every-day reinforced concrete tools that support a BIM workflow. Looking ahead users can benefit from robust structural BIM workflows which promote the reuse of engineering BIM data, otherwise ignored when transferring project models, to enable structural projects to be completed more efficiently directly within Revit.“
