Autodesk Advance Steel 2016


Autodesk Advance Steel 2016

Advance Steel detailing software helps accelerate design, steel detailing, steel fabrication, and steel construction—built on the familiar AutoCAD platform.
Key enhancements for Advance Steel 2016 include:
- Steel Modeling: Scalability & Performance Improvements – Helps to navigate more efficiently in a model by quickly isolating selected elements in a work area to be displayed in the current visual style, while the other elements get a much lower LOD (beams axis shown only). This enhanced feature helps improves performance when working with complex models.

Enhancement helps improve performance when working with complex models.
- Steel Modeling: Weld definition properties enhanced – Representing specific weld characteristics in a DWG file used for fabrication can be a time-consuming, tedious task. Enhancements now help users to define weld properties directly [e.g. effective throat or root opening], or opt to have them set automatically when using the automatic steel connections feature. The resulting ISO standards-compliant weld symbols are displayed automatically on drawings; and specific preferences may then be easily adjusted in the DWG file.

Specify weld properties in the model and get them being displayed more accurately on drawings.
- Interoperability: Status tracking information – Helps to easily round-trip model information with MIS software thanks to a bidirectional link. This enables the updating of a model with the current status information from fabrication to shipping. Elements can then be colorized in the 3D model based on these updated status. These features help facilitate an integrated steel fabrication management process.
