The challenges we face in our industry revolve around saving time and money. Traditional methods of design engineering do not embrace the technological evolution of CAD software. There's a better workflow, and the software is already available to seamlessly integrate design drafters, engineers, and steel detailers into one model. I will walk you through the lifecycle of one of our projects with the use of Revit software and Advance Steel detailing software, of designers working with detailers, to produce fabrication drawings without producing a single structural design drawing.
