    Autodesk industry partners with CSC and Design Data have combined their expertise to deliver the first smooth Building Information Modeling (BIM) process for the entire design of steel structures. This process links Fastrak™ from CSC, Revit Structure software, and SDS/2 Connect from Design Data software. This class demonstrates how a fully code-compliant design of the steel structure can be produced in Fastrak, which can be synchronized with Revit Structure to create 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 to create 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.

    Key Learnings

    • Implement integration between Revit, Fastrak, and SDS/2 Connect
    • Realize productivity gains through a combined workflow
    • Share Revit/Fastrak models downstream with steel fabricators
    • Capitalize on the full potential that structural BIM offers steel building design
