In this hands-on lab, we will explore the new interoperability between Advance Steel 2017 software and Robot Structural Analysis Professional 2017 software. We will begin by exploring a simple structural model in Advance Steel software. We will push that model into Robot Structural Analysis Professional software and perform a basic analysis and code group-based design. Once the design is correct, we will update the Advance Steel model geometry from Robot Structural Analysis Professional and continue the steel-detailing process. This session features Robot Structural Analysis Professional and Advance Steel. AIA Approved
