Advance Steel is a steel design application integrated into the latest version of AutoCAD. The Advance Steel model is the basis of 3D design. It contains and manages structural steel objects (for example, beams, plates, bolts, welds), as well as structural elements and the relationships of objects to each other. Complex structures are created using Advance Steel structural elements (eg gantry frame or stairs), which include all the necessary elements, nodes and connections.
The Advance Steel program is adapted for the development of both standardized and non-standard designs. It has a large selection of cold rolled sections and lattice structures from popular manufacturers (Albion, Ayrshire, Canam Manac, Canfer, Fisher, HiSpan, Kingspan, Krupp, Metsec, SAB, SADEF, Staba, StructuralSections, Ward, Zeta, etc.). You can create individual custom sections and other elements and save them in tables (libraries) for reuse.
