Eddie Howie, self-employed structural detailer
|“I would say that about 90% of my work is stairs and handrails. Powerpack Stairs and Railings has been a great benefit for me to produce stairs and railing with great speed and accuracy. I would recommend Advance steel operators that do stairs and railings look into this add on – you will benefit greatly.”
Benefit: Faster and more accurate stairs and railings.
Mick Allitt, Drafter, C & N Fabrications Ltd
|“As a company that manufactures a lot of architectural steel work, the Stairs and Railings feature of PowerPack has been a real game changer. Being able to model types of balustrades that could not be done automatically for multiple flights of stairs and landings in one macro, with the ability to control almost everything, saves a significant amount of time.”
Benefit: Save significant time.
Stairs for any construction project
Design with more versatility and efficiency. The Stairs module provides a range of straight stair configurations for any construction project. Customizable frames can be easily edited and modified, with one-, two-, and three-flight options and Z or U shapes. Landings include plates or gratings; stringers can be open or closed sections.
Aesthetics in design
Design to please your customer with Balanced Stairs. Versatile, flexible and aesthetic options enable one, two, or three flights, with Z or U shapes. Combine safety with attractive appearance. Design for open or closed stringers made from beams or plates.
Magic Tree for macros
Design complex structures like magic. GRAITEC ‘Magic Tree’ enables easy navigation of complex macrostructures. Work faster with multiple access points to elements and sub-elements. Transfer parameters among a series of items, affecting only elements on specific branches. Gain flexibility, detail control, and better interaction and flow. Navigate your macrostructures reliably.
Powerful standard railings
Enhance the safety, functionality, and aesthetic value of your structures with versatile railings. Visualize your railings in detail with professional 3D model display. Create and control, using points, lines or beams as input. Vary connections and customize railings with frames and panels. Control post positioning and alter ending types, split mechanisms, fixing lugs, and cap plates.
Reliable infill panels
Optimize railing designs with customizable, reliable infill panels. Enhance safety and aesthetics, while customizing to specific needs. Customize posts with clamps, pickets, plates, or gratings using any material. Automatically shape and get seamless transitions from straight to slope. Vary frame size, thickness, reinforcement, cap plates, fixing lugs, and connection types.
Versatile wall-mounted railings
Distinguish your work through greater flexibility in design. Architects and designers offer clients flexible options with customizable railings. Mounted on walls or wooden posts, they can be defined in multiple ways, positioned at any angle, and have various connector options.
