A fluid design process using BIM technology

With 25 years experience in structural analysis and design, GRAITEC has a complete suite of analysis and design software, which allows construction engineers to rapidly and efficiently dimension their works.

To continue to provide a fluid design process, GRAITEC provides bidirectional integration with Autodesk Revit Architecture and Autodesk Revit Structure.

This integration allows Revit users to more rapidly get an optimized design of their projects and to produce all fabrication drawings. This integration also reduces the risk of potential errors when changes occur.

The interface with Autodesk Revit Structure and Autodesk Revit Architecture is made possible because GRAITEC products are fully BIM oriented. GRAITEC implemented its BIM technology so each real object has a virtual counterpart with accurate associated properties and behavior. Using BIM, GRAITEC provides an optimal solution for accelerated creation of the structural analysis model and automatic creation of drawings, bill of materials and lists. This BIM technology increases general productivity and reduces errors during the entire design to construction process.

From design to production with the GRAITEC Advance suite!

The Graitec Advance suite consists of Advance Design, Autodesk Advance Steel and Autodesk Advance Concrete. This global concept allows users to deal with structural 3D modeling, structural design and detailing without having to re-input data.
Full bidirectional integration between Autodesk Revit Structure and all Graitec products
  • Steel Detailing
  • Import the 3D model from Revit to Autodesk Advance Steel, add joints, and create your general arrangement drawings, workshop drawings and NC files!

  • Concrete Detailing
  • Import the 3D model from Revit to Autodesk Advance Concrete and use its advanced rebar features for automating the creation of all your reinforcement drawings.

Structural Analysis integrated from the design stage!

Graitec Structural Analyses product Import the 3D model from Autodesk Revit Structure (or Autodesk Revit Architecture) to the desired Graitec Structural Analysis product (see below for more details). Then complete the model, especially with regards to design codes and assumptions, run a structural analysis and design process to optimize the structure, and synchronize back the changes in your Revit Structure model! The following elements are implemented:
  • Structural elements (columns, beams, wall, slabs)
  • Custom families containing an analytical model
  • Supports
  • Loads

Advance Design was specifically developed for industry professionals that require a superior solution for the structural analysis and design of Reinforced Concrete, Steel and Timber structures.
Advance Design features include easy modeling, a powerful FEM analysis engine, top-level design wizards, automated post-processing of results and automated reports.
Two versions of Advance Design are available:
  • Advance Design Europe (Eurocodes, French codes)
  • Advance Design America / based on the Visual Design technology (American and Canadian codes)
  • Full bidirectional integration between Autodesk Revit Structure and all Graitec products
    Launched in 1993, Arche is the French reference for reinforced concrete building design.
    From a 3D model made of slabs, beams, columns, walls and foundations, Arche analyzes the overall construction stability and automatically creates all reinforcement drawings. Arche is available for Eurocodes and French codes.

    Arche is sold by GRAITEC France.
    Full bidirectional integration between Autodesk Revit Structure and all Graitec products
    SuperSTRESS is a UK leading structural analysis program. New users can immediately become familiar with and enjoy the powerful, easy-to-use graphical interface and intuitive input methods. Accurate modeling of highly complex structures can be carried out in the minimum of time with flexible tabular and graphical output available directly to Word and / Excel. SuperSTRESS is available for Eurocodes and British codes.

    SuperSTRESS is sold by GRAITEC UK.

    How does it work?


    • First, make sure you have already installed Autodesk Revit Architecture or Autodesk Revit Structure.
    • Then download GRAITEC BIM Connect from this webpage and follow the installation steps.
    • In Revit, 4 menu options will be available:
    • Discover how GRAITEC solutions are compatible with Autodesk Revit Structure.
    1. External Tools / GRAITEC Export
    2. External Tools / GRAITEC Synchronize
    3. External Tools / GRAITEC Import
    4. External Tools / GTC settings…
    Graitec Transfer Center - CAD and Analysis software interoperability


    The integration is based on the GRAITEC BIM technology. With this BIM approach, all the models created with GRAITEC software can be imported, exported and synchronized, limiting data loss and the need to re-input data. For more information, see the GRAITEC BIM info page.
