See how the structural detailing and fabrication software in the Autodesk Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) Collection helps support the structural design-to-fabrication process for precast, rebar and structural steel.
Structural fabrication is the design, detailing, and creation of parts, assemblies, building systems, or structures from steel, concrete, or other materials. Prefabrication helps to reduce waste and speed installation and construction.
What is structural steel fabrication?
Structural steel fabrication is the process of bending, cutting, and assembling structural steel to create parts, machines, or structures. Structural steel fabricators use machinery to construct a steel piece viable for structural assembly.
Different types of fabrication
STRUCTURAL STEEL BEST PRACTICES
See how the leading Canada-based manufacturer of steel building systems uses Autodesk’s Advance Steel detailing software to improve productivity and efficiencies across various workflows.
The Autodesk AEC Collection from Autodesk enhances all phases of fabrication.
A real-time flow of information means enhanced coordination of design, detailing, fabrication, and site operations.
The design model for fabrication helps identify problems before production, reducing discrepancies and the need for rework, as well as lowering costs.
Streamline your process and generate complex structures in fewer steps. By integrating connection design, detailing, and estimating, fabricators can better optimize and automate their workstreams.
Easily create model-driven shop deliverables to streamline fabrication and installation.
Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Collection
One collection does it all. Plan, design and detail in 3D, and manage all aspects of structural fabrication. Manage workflows, automate drawings and reports, and accelerate structural fabrication design.
