The 4th Annual Advance Steel Academy 2017 in US is a Success!


Thank you to everyone who made our Annual Advance Steel Academy a success! We are already planning ahead for next year’s event in Baltimore!

The 4th Annual Advance Steel Academy 2017 in US is a Success!

GRAITEC, Autodesk® Platinum Partner, hosted its fourth edition of Advance Steel Academy, an advanced training focused on Autodesk® Advance Steel. This event took place in San Antonio on March 20-22, just before the NASCC, and we welcomed 50 Advance Steel users (this number has doubled from last year!). “The objective of the Advance Steel Academy is for all attendees to develop their Advance Steel skills, learn about trends within the building and construction industry and network with other industry professionals.” Hugo Michaud, Sales Director Americas, Graitec Group.

The first day was met with a buzz of excitement at the historical Menger Hotel as we anxiously awaited our guests’ arrival.

This was my first Advance Steel Academy to attend, and I will continue attending in the future. I learned new tips, tricks and technics on most all seminars. Networking and socializing with fellow Advance Steel users and the tech team proved to be quite beneficial as well. I recommend it to all Advance Steel users!” Lewis Moreland, Owner, EZDrawLLC

The GRAITEC team welcomed Autodesk Advance Steel users with different backgrounds. Steel and Precast Detailers, Steel Erectors, Steel & Precast Fabricators, Structural Engineers, Contractors, etc. gathered for in-depth workshops, technical sessions and networking.

For the third consecutive year, we were joined by Autodesk partners. Michael Gustafson, Industry Strategy Manager for Structural Engineering at Autodesk, talked about Autodesk’s vision for the Future of Structure & BIM. He adds: “Graitec’s Advance Steel Academy event was a big success. I’ve attended this event for three years now, and it has steadily attracted more customers each year. It was a great week having the opportunity to meet with Advance Steel customers at Graitec’s event as well as at NASCC.

This was my second Advance Steel Academy and it was great. The perfect opportunity to discuss problems, learn new tricks, exchange ideas and share solutions with the Advance Steel experts as well as other users.” Matt Steiger, Detailer/CAD Manager, Mountainview Steel Detailing
