Autodesk® Revit® Structure: The Complete Solution for Steel Buildings
Collapse Expand


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
