GRAITEC delivered new tools and solutions for BIM and steel fabrication during NASCC 2016


GRAITEC, international BIM and CAD software developer for AEC and Autodesk® Platinum Partner in US and across Europe, delivered new tools and solutions for BIM and steel fabrication during the NASCC Steel Conference in Orlando, FL on April 13-15 2016.

The NASCC Steel Conference is an annual event put on by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). It’s designed as a forum for engineers, fabricators and detailers to learn about structural steel design and construction.On April 13, GRAITEC experts showcased five new and enhanced products focused on BIM and fabrication: two productivity extensions for Autodesk Revit and Autodesk Advance Steel; a new release of the structural analysis solution, Advance Design; a new Steel Fabrication Management Information System (MIS) called Advance Workshop and Autodesk® Advance Steel 2017, 3D BIM software for steel modeling and detailing.

Autodesk as a launch-pad for the new version of Advance Steel, Autodesk’s easy-to-use and comprehensive software for structural steel detailing. At their booth, GRAITEC experts gave live demonstrations of the 3D modeling software for steel detailing based on AutoCAD®. Advance Steel is a leading edge steel construction application designed for steel professionals. Its model based environment allows to produce accurate detailed general arrangement and shop drawings faster, helping to speed time to erection and fabrication. The various improvements, new features and Autodesk Revit and GRAITEC solutions’ interoperability help overcome challenges thanks to a better BIM workflow.

GRAITEC’s powerful add-on introduces a wealth of localised manufacturer profiles and more predefined default settings. New tools are developed to easily define spirals, helices using different combinations between start, centre and end point and radius or angle. This extension also introduces cloud connectivity and integrates bi-directional links with Advance Workshop, GRAITEC’s newly launched Steel Fabrication MIS solution, enabling Advance Steel users to retrieve and graphically display colour-coded production statuses in their models.

GRAITEC’s versatile, well-rounded fabrication management solution (MIS) is perfect for optimising, controlling and managing every aspect of the process with high levels of accuracy and quality. It is similar to an enterprise resource management (ERM) system, although Advance Workshop links directly to Autodesk Advance Steel. It allows the system to access and use 3D data from the detailing software. This helps increase production and lower costs.

Meanwhile, the new release of Advance Design, GRAITEC’s FEM structural analysis solution, was also showcased. It comes with a new ‘ergonomic’ ribbon-based user interface designed to make it easier to navigate and access tools more efficiently. This version offers more than 140 improvements and corrections. The bi-direction link between Advance Design and Autodesk Revit has also been updated to enable the sharing of BIM models containing building performance data, including support for transferring the actual FEM results to the Revit environment.

Advance PowerPack, add-on for Autodesk Revit

A powerful extension was also demonstrated during the event. This new application for Revit users of all disciplines. It offers tools for more efficient modeling, controlling annotations and dimensions, importing data from Excel, exporting to .DWG format and the ability to share BIM models between Autodesk Revit and Advance Design.
