Advance is a steel design application integrated into the latest version of AutoCAD 2023. The Advance Steel model is the basis of 3D design. It contains and manages structural steel objects (for example, beams, plates, bolts, welds), structural elements and the relationships of objects to each other.
An Overview of Advance Steel
Advanced steel structures are created using advanced steel structural elements, which include all the necessary elements, nodes, and connections. The Advance Steel program is adapted to developing standardized and non-standard designs.
It has a large selection of cold-rolled sections and lattice structures from popular manufacturers Albion, Ayrshire, Canam Manac, Camper, Fisher, HiSpan, Kingspan, Krupp, Metsec, SAB, SADEF, Staba, StructuralSections, Ward, Zeta, etc. You can create individual custom sections and other elements and save them in tables (libraries) for reuse.
Characteristics of Advance Steel
- Advanced Steel is a 3D modeling software specifically designed for structural steel detailing and fabrication.
- It allows users to create detailed 3D models of steel structures, including beams, columns, connections, and other components.
- The software includes tools and features for creating accurate and precise steel detailing drawings, such as automatic dimensioning, labeling, and annotation.
- It supports creating complex steel connections, including parametric connections that can be easily modified and updated.
- Advance Steel offers integrated collaboration tools, allowing multiple users to work simultaneously on the same project, improving productivity and reducing errors.
- The software includes a comprehensive library of steel profiles, bolts, and other steel components, making it easy to select and insert the appropriate elements into the model.
- It supports creating detailed Bills of Materials (BOM) and fabrication drawings, ensuring accurate and efficient communication between designers, fabricators, and contractors.
