Advance Steel tools drive efficient steel design and workflows, while complementary products in the AEC Collection offer enhanced analytic, automation, and model coordination when working in BIM.
Dynamo Extension for Advance Steel
Use Dynamo’s visual programming language to create parametrically driven geometries for complex structures.
Code-checking and design validation
Check for compliance and validate steel-connections against AISC standards.
Propagation of steel connections
Reduce tedious work and ensure accurate placement of steel connections with automated connection propagation.
Hide or show detailed parts
Isolate parts and assemblies already detailed for fabrication.
Bills of Materials
Automatically generate BOMs from modeled element data for use in spreadsheets and reporting.
Drawing update with revision
Use revision clouds to reduce time spent tracking modifications to shop drawings.
AutoCAD Plant 3D interoperability
Use AutoCAD Plant 3D and Advance Steel together in the AEC Collection to connect and sync fabrication to plant design.
MIS software interoperability
Export data via KISS, XML, or IFC with MIS software.
Custom settings import
Save time by importing your custom settings when moving to new versions of Advance Steel.
Open and flexible API
Enhance and extend the use of Advance Steel with APIs for managing data, connecting to other software, and custom tools for software developers.
Import or export a 3D model to an IFC 2x3 file.
View native drawings in AutoCAD
Improve data accessibility by viewing Advance Steel drawings with object enabler.
Bring Advance Steel data into Navisworks for better quantification, simulation, review, and model coordination.
Use shared views for design collaboration, and show progress to stakeholders within or outside your organization.
Attach a point cloud
Bring laser-scanned point cloud data into Advance Steel to design with snap-to functionality within the site context and existing conditions.
