Advanced steelwork detailing software
Computer and Design Services (CADS) has launched a new Advance Steel 7.1 package, which brings a range of updated features to its 3D steel modelling and detailing suite.
Areas of improvement include enhanced modelling tools, better presentation and configuration options for automatic drawings, new import and export formats, support for new profiles such as Corus Advance and introduction of powerful accessory macros and CAM to Hi-Span and Metsec cold rolled systems.
Advance Steel also links to Revit Structure to enable the creation of drawings from imported 3D models.
Ian Chambers, CADS Sales Director, said: “This AutoCAD based system is already establishing itself as a real alternative solution to users of other suites. They can now retain the functionality of these other suites while gaining leading tools for the creation of mezzanines and structural steelwork, such as stairs and railings.”
The speed has also been improved in many areas of Advance Steel, drawing styles and processes have been reviewed and enhanced, while users can benefit from a raft of new configuration options.
