The release of Advance Steel 2017 extends capabilities that allow you to move even more quickly from structural design to structural fabrication. This release focuses on enhancements that improve modeling efficiency, productivity and documentation, and interoperability such as the ability to synchronize not only steel members but also steel connections between models created in Revit and/or Advance Steel.

Structural design to fabrication with Advance Steel 2017 Extension for Revit

Advance Steel Extension for RevitThe Advance Steel 2017 Extension for Revit allows you to manage changes between Revit and Advance Steel including Steel Connections for Revit. The 2017 extension comes with a set of various enhancements which offer a higher level of model information exchange, especially with synchronization for Revit models containing steel connections back and forth with Advance Steel. The “Advance Steel 2017 Extension” for Revit is only compliant with Revit 2017.

The extension can be downloaded and installed from the Autodesk App Store here. Watch out this video if you want to know more about how to install it on your computer.

Steel Connections for Revit helps model to a higher LOD

Steel Connections for RevitThe Steel Connections for Revit extension provides access to a variety of parametric steel connections in Autodesk Revit software, enabling connections to be modeled with a higher level of detail. The application also includes a built-in steel connection design engine based on US and European codes. This functionality helps to bridge the gap between design and fabrication as both members and connections can be better synchronized between Revit and Advance Steel for detailing.
