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;

  • 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.

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%.

AceCad acknowledges that Advance Steel works with StruM.I.S


AceCad, IT software developer of supply chain solutions for Steel Building Structures, acknowledges that the Advance Steel Kiss export as the format to interface with StruM.I.S.

The KISS standard (“Keep It Simple, Steel”) was developed under the auspices of FABTROL Systems, as a solution for the problems caused by incompatible data formats and it can be used to transfer fabrication-related data between CAD and fabrication management software applications.  For more information about the KISS file format, visit: http://www.steelkiss.org/.

Advance Steel has been certified by FABTROL since September 2007 (http://www.fabtrol.com/kiss-compliant-software.html) for its ability to exchange data using the KISS file format. Our customers can use KISS files to transfer data from the model and the bill of materials between Advance Steel and StruM.I.S.

AceCad acknowledges that Advance Steel works with StruM.I.S

StruM.I.S (steel fabrication management information system that harnesses the information flow and work processes throughout the steelwork contract between departments, suppliers and clients) acknowledges its compliancy with Advance Steel output through the KISS file format. Other formats include: CIS/2, CSV, PDMS, DSTV CAD.
