Questions to Rainer Bach And Georg Stichternath, Top managers of CONFERDO

Mr. Bach, why did you choose Advance to model this project?

We have been using Advance for 2 years and are very satisfied with it's capabilities.

Mr. Stichternath, what benefits have Advance Steel brought to this project?
For assembly overseas it's really important to have precise object lists in order to eliminate errors with bolts, connection elements and assemblies on the project site. Advance from Graitec does a great  job in automating and updating all part lists.
Another great feature is the collision check to make sure everything fits right the first timeand t
he virtual snapshots feature creates various views from different perspectives so the construction personnel know what the final structure should look like.
