Project
The project is a new building for a library and several large lecture rooms for the Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology at the University of Ljubljana, in Slovenia.

Elea iC used Advance Steel to model in 3D the complete steel structure for this building, with a structure weight of 783 tons and dimensions of 59.30 × 26.20 × 16.00 m, and to automatically get all workshop drawings ready for fabrication.

Apart from the fact that the dimensions of this project are impressive, the main difficulty is that the outside shape of the roof has an elliptical shape with all columns being inclined.

Mr Marko PAVLINJEK - Elea iC - Structural engineer:
"Advance Steel has increased our productivity and even made it possible to model the complex geometry of this structure in the first place. We especially appreciate its automatic detailing capabilities and the easy manual adjustments to shop drawings it makes possible."
