Our customers say it best

Using the PowerPack for Advance Steel has enabled our design team to streamline certain aspects of the design process that are not available with the stand-alone version of Advance Steel

Ryan Green, Project Manager, Walker Engineering NW ltd

The PowerPack for Advance Steel is the only way to detail stairs and railings quickly and efficiently. Detailing of stairs and railings generally is much more time consuming in comparison to structural steel, especially when alterations are required. The PowerPack greatly reduces time spent detailing, updating, and making alterations.

Complement and balance your projects perfectly
with PowerPack for Advance Steel.

Modeling Tools

The PowerPack for Advance Steel comes with a large number of modelling tools that aim to boost productivity and accuracy. The user has a set of simple and intuitive commands like Beam Repeated or Beam Continuous that creates straight, and curved/ poly beams. For more complex sections the Corrugated, Castellated, Cellular, or Beam with Openings are the right choice.

Connection Vault

PowerPack for Advance Steel extends the standard library with a variety of parametric and intelligent advanced connections: Threaded Rod Connection, Tube to Tube Connection, Purlin Connection, Plates on Profile, Plate for Multiple Bracings, Curved End Plate – Plate & Grating Stiffeners

Platform Cover Creator

Platform Cover Creator is one of the stars of the PowerPack thanks to its versatility. The joint helps to automatically create grating or plate cover based on selected members, and gives the user many possibilities: Create covers even if the contours are not closed, Split covers directly from the joint by beams or by points, Add bolts on edges, Add additional contours

IGES/STEP Export

Formats are widely requested by many manufacturers for designing molds or for pricing manufactured parts, the export in IGES and STEP formats completes the PowerPack solution. These types of file formats are helping the user to be more productive when it comes to sending files to third applications for the fabrication process.

Stairs and Railings

Stairs and Railings can be easily customised within the PowerPack for Advance Steel dialogue box. The interface elements offer a consistent structure, which makes it fast and efficient. Users can choose from numerous features and options for stairs & railings configuration, with editable parameters (dimensions, steps, treads, strides, connection types, etc.) to get the required structure.

Synchronization

Based on the GTCX file format, the synchronisation mechanism completes the BIM workflow. The main benefits of the synchronisation mechanism are: Possibility to bring the changes made in the Advance Design model without losing the information already available in the Advance Steel model; Control any detail of the synchronisation process
