Autodesk Inc., a world leader in 3D design software for entertainment, natural resources, manufacturing, engineering, construction, and civil infrastructure, announced the launch of the first product developed through this acquisition, called Autodesk Advance Steel 2015. The BIM manufacturer had acquired technologies from Graitec, a structural engineering design solutions group.
Advance Steel detailing software is built on the AutoCAD platform. Intelligent 3D modeling tools help you accelerate accurate design and detailing. Speed time to fabrication and construction with tools that automatically generate shop drawings and deliverables. Interoperability with Revit Building Information Modeling (BIM) software supports a more connected workflow.
Advance Steel will automatically generate shop and general arrangement drawings, create bills of materials and produce CNC files directly from designs, leading to quicker fabrication activities. Its interoperability with other variants by Autodesk and other BIM software products is expected to further the softwares effectiveness during design and construction stages.
