Steel connections for Revit beta

With Revit 2017 Autodesk delivered an extension allowing users to create steel connections in Revit. This functionality gives engineers the ability to model their steel designs to a higher level of detail. For an upcoming release, we are bringing even more capabilities and functionalities to the steel environment, including:

  • Create steel connections to custom structural framing families
  • > 100 new standard steel connections as parametrized objects
  • Extended capabilities allow a complete LOD350 modelling for structural steel
  • Continuous interoperability between Advance Steel and Revit

Be a beta tester

The Revit structure team is looking for users to help us beta test our new release and provide feedback to make the software better. If you’re interested in joining our beta testing team, please reach out to Autodesk senior user experience designer, Andreea Dumbrava (, and she’ll add you to the private forum for testers.
