GRAITEC launches GRAITEC BIM Connect 2013


GRAITEC BIM Connect is a software add-on for Autodesk REVIT and part of the GRAITEC BIM solution. With GRAITEC BIM Connect, Autodesk REVIT users can quickly connect their REVIT models to the GRAITEC Advance suite and then optimize the design of their structures in accordance with U.S. and EUROCODE standards, produce effective and error-free general arrangement drawings, fabrication drawings, BOMs, and NC files both for steel and concrete structures.

With version 2013, important features have been added:

  • Automatic installation from ADVANCE Setup;

  • New GTCX file format;
  • Export of the folded plates and poly-beams;
  • 6000 profile mapping lines, including profile rotations added for North America and UK;
  • New specific ribbon tab added in Autodesk REVIT, to include all commands (Export, Import, Synchronization, Settings and About).

  • Correct import and rotation for curved beams and curved foundations;
  • Import of bent or curved walls, regardless of the format;
  • Automatic recognition of concrete sections, regardless of the file format and with no mapping required.

Using GRAITEC BIM Connect 2013, you can also import/export to other BIM file formats such as IFC, SDNF, CIS2 (already certified), PSS and KISS.

You can read here the full documents of new features and improvements for GRAITEC BIM Connect 2013. Please feel free to give us your feedback to help us improve other functionalities of the software.

Advance Design : Professional Finite Element Analysis Software with Concrete / Steel structures presizing and automatic reports generation

Advance Design®  is specifically dedicated to structural engineers who require a professional and easy-to-use solution for simulating and optimizing all their projects. Advance Design® includes a user-friendly structural modeler, automatic load and combination generators, a powerful FEM analysis engine (static, dynamic, time history, non linear, buckling, large displacement analysis, etc.), comprehensive wizards for designing concrete and steel members, and efficient result post-processing and automatic report generators. It automatically updates all reports, including graphical results when modifications are made to the model.

Advance Design TOP 5 benefits:

1 – Powerful modeling system dedicated to engineers: realistic rendering, floors managements for buildings, complete library of user-definable structural elements, load generator, etc.

2 – Advanced analysis features: automatic mesher, time history analysis, static, dynamic, non linear analysis, etc.

3 – Latest versions of Eurocodes implemented: automatic design of concrete and steel elements according to EC1, EC2, EC3, EC8, with 3D interaction curves, deflections checking, buckling and lateral buckling checking, connections design, etc.

4 – “Result Memory” technology: avoid repetitive tasks by updating automatically all the post-processing documents (views and reports) when changing the 3D model.

5 – BIM and Collaborative work: DXF / DWG / Revit imports, multi-user technology, BIM approach for data synchronization, interoperability with industry standards (SDNF, CIS/2, IFC), etc.

Advance Design: Professional Finite Element Analysis Software according to European standardsInternationalization is a major theme of version 2012 of Advance Design® with the implementation of several new National Appendices to the Eurocodes 0, 1, 2, 3, 5 and 8.

This version also allows users to go further in the application of the Eurocodes with its many additional features: management of buildings open to the wind, design of timber structures to EC5 or calculation of cracks as a function of applied reinforcement to EC2.

Advance Design® is the indispensable tool for the design of large scale projects.

Webinar “Discover Advance Steel 2012” planned for May 3rd 2012


Steel detailers, Structural Engineers: 
Discover Advance Steel 2012: The Powerful and Affordable Steel Detailing Software

on Wendsday, May 3rd, 2012 from 9:00 to 9:30 am CET or 5:00 to 5:30 pm CET

Register online to this webinar

Advance Steel® is specifically designed for professionals who require an easy-to-use 3D structural steel detailing software that automates the production of drawings, BOMs and NC files.

Advance Steel® is part of the GRAITEC structural BIM solution, automating the entire structural design process, from engineering design to detailing and fabrication.

Advance Steel TOP 5 benefits:

Advance Steel: BIM software for structural steel engineering, detailing and fabrication

1 – More Productivity with the flexible and efficient 3D modeling automatic tools: complete international catalogs, library of parametric joints, single or multi-user mode, etc.

2 – Short learning curve: reduces new employee ramp up time

3 – Specific features for miscellaneous steel and sheet metal: automatic functions for all type of stairs and railings, automatic tools for sheet metal creation, folded and twisted plates, etc.

4 – Precise and automatic creation and updating of construction documents: BOMs automatically created from the 3D model, revision control, revision clouds, drawing presentation template, automatic drawing scaling, paper formats and views, etc.

5 – BIM and collaborative work: DXF / DWG / Revit imports, multi-user technology, interoperability with major industry leading detailing / fabrication / engineering / MRP packages (CIS/2, SDNF, DSTV, KISS, etc.), etc.

Advance Steel: Professional Steel Detailing Software Solution for AutoCAD

Historically based on the AutoCAD® platform, Advance Steel® 2012 allows users to use their software with or without AutoCAD®. In fact, the product includes its own graphics engine, and the user can select the desired CAD platform. Regardless of the selected platform, all the essential functionality of the software is retained, as well as DWG® compatibility.
This major change has also allowed GRAITEC to simplify the user interface by focusing on and organizing the industry specific functionality of the software.
Another major impact for users: the overall cost of the solution and the ease of installation and deployment. The return on investment for the current version is improved by 30%.
