The Steel Structure Designer incorporates an extensive range of building definitions and tools enabling users to configure complete structures in seconds, from standard building shapes used in industry (platforms, steel halls), to more complex models, such as office buildings or structures with curved roofs, in seconds.
|Factory or Building
|Intelligent BIM workflows
|No matter the type of structure, Factory or Building, the Steel Structure Designer helps you to define the geometry of the structure (rows, bays, levels), then the portal frames that will support the roof, intermediate columns, side and roof bracings, railing and purlins, including steel panels, or cladding, that cover the entire structure.
|The macro incorporates a library which gives the possibility to save all configurations and types of structures for later usage.
|Designed to save you considerable time, the functionalities of the Steel Structure Designer are able to run across multiple platforms including Autodesk® Advance Steel (as part of PowerPack for Advance Steel) and GRAITEC Advance Design, enabling flexible and intelligent BIM workflows.
