3D modeling software for steel detailing

Advance Steel detailing software is built on the AutoCAD platform. Intelligent 3D modeling tools help you accelerate accurate design and detailing. Speed time to fabrication and construction with tools that automatically generate shop drawings and deliverables. Interoperability with Revit Building Information Modeling (BIM) software supports a more connected workflow.

Advance Steel features

Complete toolset for structural steel detailing

Demos illustrate the structural steel design tools in Advance Steel. Features include a library of intelligent parametric structural elements, steel connections, and plates. Model custom elements and connections. Automatically generate shop and general arrangement drawings, create bills of material (BOMs), and produce DTSV CNC files directly from your designs.
