Autodesk industry partners CSC and Design Data have combined their expertise to deliver a consistent Building Information Modeling (BIM) process for the entire design of steel structures. This process links CSC Fastrak, Autodesk Revit Structure, and Design Data SDS/2 Connect software. We will demonstrate how a full code-compliant design of the steel structure can be produced in Fastrak, which can be synchronized with both Revit Structure, for the creation of BIM documentation, and with SDS/2 Connect, for the full design and detailing of the steel connections. The fully designed Revit model can then be exported to SDS/2 Detailing software for the creation of the fabrication model. Integration between Fastrak, SDS/2 Connect and Revit Structure is a powerful solution for the steel industry. Bridging the information gap between design and fabrication shortens timelines, enhances project communication, and ultimately reduces project costs.
- Share Revit/Fastrak models downstream to steel fabricators
- Capitalize on the full potential structural BIM offers steel building design
- Implement integration between Revit, Fastrak, and SDS/2 Connect
- Realize the productivity gains that are achievable with a combined workflow
Kevin has worked closely with Consulting Engineers and steelwork fabricators throughout the world assessing their requirements for structural design and BIM solutions. He has been with CSC for 18 years and is currently the BIM Business Development Manager. He specialises in both structural design and structural BIM technology and has assisted many of CSC’s corporate clients such as Arup, Atkins, Buro Happold, Aecom, Ramboll, WSP, White Young Green, et al to implement the latest Structural BIM tools. He is an active speaker on the topic and involved with numerous leading industry and government organisations promoting the adoption of Structural BIM around the world. Kevin also coordinates CSC's activities with Autodesk as Structural Industry Partners. A working relationship focused on the promotion and enhancement of BIM technology for the structural community.
