GRAITEC Launch Advance PowerPack for Autodesk® Revit® 2018


GRAITEC, an international BIM and CAD software developer for AEC, and Autodesk® Platinum Partner in US and across Europe, is delighted to announce the launch of Advance PowerPack for Autodesk® Revit® 2018, compatible with both Autodesk® Revit® 2017 and 2018.

GRAITEC is constantly improving its products to provide first-rate productivity tools for its valued customers, and the recent launch of the PowerPack for Autodesk® Revit® 2018 is no exception to this rule, as it delivers a set of new powerful tools, as well as several improvements to the existing toolset to help boost productivity in Revit®.

In version 2018 of the PowerPack, cleaning up your architectural background files before linking them to structural or MEP models has never been easier with the new Prepare Background Model command in the Files group.

The Link Background Model function is another powerful new tool, that links the architectural background file in the MEP or Structural model, allows users to transfer project standards from the linked file, enables copying scope boxes from the background file and make the link room-bounding.

The third new addition to the Files group is the Create Views command, which rapidly and efficiently creates views based on view templates, allowing multiple levels/view templates selection.

One of the major changes in this version is the migration of the Reinforcement panel from PowerPack for Revit ribbon to the Reinforced Concrete BIM Designers application, as a result of users demand for a more compact reinforcement package, that includes calculation, cage generation, drawings, reports and detailing, from a single set of tools.

Another ribbon-related change involves the addition of the new category of structural modeling tools, used for verifying and correcting the analytical model of Revit projects and obtaining correct FEM results after exporting them into Advance Design.

The new tools in the set are used for resetting manual adjustments of analytical models (Reset Analytical Models), automatically trimming/extending the extremities of close objects (Trim or Extend), stretching the closest extremities of selected elements to a reference point (Stretch to Node), or indicating elements that seem to be connected but from a calculation point of view are not (Detect Errors).

Version 2018 also comes with two new modeling tools: Join & Unjoin Geometry, which automatically joins, unjoins or switches the join order of selected element categories, and Pipe insulation, which automatically assigns insulation to the systems based on parameters such as the outer or inner diameter, or assigns a specific value.

Other important improvements and news include the new interface in Russian, as well as the custom installation packages, which allow individual installation of certain PowerPack functionalities, such as Family manager, Link to Excel and Watermark Manager.

Gareth Spencer, on the GRAITEC Advance PowerPack for Revit in AUGIWorld


AUGIWorld is the official magazine of Autodesk User Group International (AUGI), distributed on a monthly basis to all AUGI members around the world.

In the June 2016 edition, Gareth Spencer, BIM Consultant working for GRAITEC and certified professional in Revit Architecture and Structure, presents the advantages of using GRAITEC Advance PowerPack for Revit for enhancing concrete detailing. Gareth explains the necessity of modeling reinforcement in the 3D Revit model, and introduces the GRAITEC Advance PowerPack for Revit as a versatile add-on for Revit, which can help users work more efficiently.

Gareth Spencer, on the GRAITEC Advance PowerPack for Revit in AUGIWorld

Gareth presents some of the most useful tools in PowerPack, such as:

  • Rebar Visibility, used for changing the view’s visibility state, so as to show rebar unobscured and/or as solids in 3D views, or for hiding certain elements;

Gareth Spencer, on the GRAITEC Advance PowerPack for Revit in AUGIWorld

  • Copy Rebar, allowing users to select element rebar, and then copy it to an identical or similar element with no reinforcement assigned;
  • Transversal Distribution, which automatically generates transversal rebar sets with multiple spacing for linear elements.
  • Trim/Extend, used for adjusting the created reinforcement to the shape and particularities of the host element, in a quick and intelligent manner.

These useful new tools are complemented by several commands and functionalities for increasing productivity while working in Autodesk Revit:

  • Family Manager, used for managing Revit families (by searching, selecting or filtering family lists to select the desired families to be imported in a project), either on a local computer, or in a company network;

Gareth Spencer, on the GRAITEC Advance PowerPack for Revit in AUGIWorld

  • Family Exporter, allowing users to select and export all families at once, or select desired families from the list;
  • Auto Section Box, which automatically creates a 3D view of the selected elements, and even duplicates it;
  • Dimension Annotations, a set of tools for automatic generation of dimension lines for overall dimensions, grids, external geometry, structural, and openings.

For Less Than $150 – the GRAITEC PowerPack for Revit® is a No Brainer


GRAITEC, international BIM and CAD software developer, announced today that following the rapid success of the PowerPack for Revit®, which has seen more than 3000 licences delivered worldwide in just over one year, GRAITEC has opted to reduce the annual subscription price of the PowerPack for Revit® to below $150 per user. This move comes as an effort to make the PowerPack for Revit® more accessible to a wider Revit® user-base and to further accelerate uptake of its Revit® add-on worldwide.

For Less Than $150 – the GRAITEC PowerPack for Revit® is a No Brainer

Carl Spalding, GRAITEC Product Strategy Director comments:The PowerPack for Revit® has proven more successful than we could have predicted. Our initial objective was to offer the PowerPack for Revit® as a loyalty benefit exclusively for our Revit® subscription customers. This remains the case today and continues to differentiate GRAITEC from other Autodesk resellers. However the demand from users outside the territories in which we operate – and those from where we do operate but are perhaps locked into contracts preventing them from switching their subscription – quickly identified that we were missing an opportunity to address the needs of a much wider user-base.

The current version of the PowerPack for Revit® offers over 60 practical tools covering a broad spectrum of basic and advanced everyday user-needs. With tools for browsing and loading families graphically, converting libraries of 3D CAD files to Revit® Families, quickly placing and displaying rebar in concrete elements, even password protecting your personal Revit® Families and so much more. Now every Revit® user across the board can easily identify one or more PowerPack tools that will address a laborious process.

Customers who have already purchased the PowerPack for Revit® will also benefit from the change as they will see their subscription fee reduced to the new price on the anniversary of their contract renewal.

GRAITEC Product Strategy Director continues:Revit® users from all disciplines are constantly looking for tools to help them become more productive. After trawling the web and narrowing the possible options to a handful, the final decision often comes down to price. We are confident that no other tool-kit for Revit®, or any combination of individual tools for the matter, comes close to the value offered by our PowerPack, not only in terms of its deliberately low price but more importantly, because of the variety and practicality of the quality tools offered.

Carl concludes: “GRAITEC is well known for its ambitious growth strategy and the PowerPack for Revit® is another example of how disrupting traditional practices and adding more emphasis on the value of customers is helping us move closer to our goal. Our aim is to deliver unrivalled solutions to real-world challenges, and in a way that we believe is almost impossible to replicate. The decision to revise the price of the PowerPack for Revit® will enable us to address the needs of more Revit® users and increase recognition of the GRAITEC brand worldwide. The new annual subscription fee of the PowerPack makes it a no-brainer for any Revit® user, regardless of the size, type or location of their company.

As an approved Autodesk developer partner, GRAITEC has created a wide range of add-ons for Autodesk products for over 25 years.

Advance Steel 2017 & Advance Concrete 2017 now available


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.

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 continuesBut 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.
