    Are you a Revit structural user interested in the fantastic new steel fabrication tools now in the 2019 release? Do you want to know how they interact with Advance Steel software? Or are you an Advance Steel user who is now being sent Revit model files. How can you make the most of them without replicating what has already been done? If you’re asking these questions, then this is the class for you! In this class, we will examine the level of detail (LOD) that can be virtually modeled in each software. We will import and export models using the Advance Steel Extension for Revit. To help identify the differences, we will apply connections; add plates, bolts and welds; and create construction/fabrication documents using both Revit software and Advance Steel software. By the end of this class, you will have a good sense of when you need to use the steel fabrication tools in Revit versus using Advance Steel.

    Key Learnings

    • Discover the importance of level of detail (LOD) for structural steel design and fabrication
    • Learn how to develop a complete design-to-fabrication workflow using the interoperability features of Revit and Advance Steel
    • Compare how complex steel connections, custom plates, bolts, and welds are created in Revit and Advance Steel
    • Understand the extent to which construction and fabrication documents are created in Revit and Advance Steel
