Overview

Concrete design and detailing software

Advance Concrete software for concrete design and detailing is built on the AutoCAD platform. Work with easy-to-use, comprehensive tools to help accelerate more accurate modeling and automate the creation of construction drawings and deliverables. Interoperability with Revit software supports a more connected Building Information Modeling (BIM) workflow.

Features

3D modeling tools for reinforced concrete design

3D modeling tools

Model reinforced concrete structures faster and more precisely. 

Reinforce structural elements with Advance Concrete tools

Reinforcement modeling and detailing

Take advantage of a variety of tools for reinforcing structural elements.

Use Advance Concrete design software to automate construction drawings

Automated construction drawings

Generate more accurate construction drawings from your design model.

3D structural modeling tools

Easy-to-use tools support fast, more precise modeling of reinforced concrete structures. Advance Concrete provides comprehensive libraries that include structural elements, openings, and materials and sections, as well as level management tools for easier modeling. Create elements of any shape as ACIS solids, then easily convert them to Advance Concrete elements.


Reinforcement modeling and detailing

Use a variety of tools to reinforce structural elements, including cast-in-place concrete, precast concrete, and special construction elements.

  • Detail bars and meshes freely, directly on 2D drawings, as Advance Concrete creates and maintains a 3D model
  • Select from a library of predefined bar shapes
  • Assign parametric reinforcement attributes for each object (beams, columns, openings)
  • Automate the placement of reinforcement bars and keep drawings up-to-date when models are modified
  • Automatically optimize mesh and bent mesh reinforcements
  • Create and visualize 3D reinforcement cages, and check clashes more easily

Automatic creation of construction drawings

Generate construction drawings directly from your design model, including sections, elevations, foundations, isometric views, and total or partial cuts. Automatic dimensioning and locating tools help accelerate the production of drawings. Work in 2D or 3D, depending on your preferences and project requirements. Advance Concrete supports basic AutoCAD concepts and functions. 


BOM and rebar schedules

Use list templates to generate bills of materials (BOMs) and bar bending schedules that are fully customizable and support certain country standards. Linked lists update the model when you make changes. Manage list output and export using a variety of methods, including export to Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Word.


Multiuser collaboration 

Let users work on separate parts of a project simultaneously to accelerate detailing on large projects.
