Fully compatible with Autodesk Advance Steel and Advance Design
The Steel Structure Designer, incorporates an extensive range of building definitions and tools enabling users to configure complete structures in seconds, from standard building shapes used in industry (platforms, steel halls), to more complex models, such as office buildings or structures with curved roofs, in seconds. Designed to save you considerable time and money, the functionalities of the Steel Structure Designer is able to run across multiple platforms including Autodesk® Advance Steel (as part of PowerPack for Advance Steel) and GRAITEC Advance Design, enabling flexible and intelligent BIM workflows.
Several complete building templates have been preconfigured and are available directly from the ribbon for creating entire 3D models in a matter of seconds.
The advanced features enable any structure to be customized by navigating through and adjusting the options in the tabs from the Steel Structure designer. First define the geometry of the structure (rows, bays, levels), then the portal frames that will support the roof, intermediate columns, side and roof bracings, railing and purlins, including steel panels, or cladding, that cover the entire structure.
