Using the example of a small historic building, which is shown in the process of being modeled in Revit, the steelwork is exported from a current view. The resulting Autodesk Advance Steel model receives the sized structural framing members, now editable in Autodesk Advance Steel - and a model having “Workplanes” and “Structures” to facilitate creation of a fabrication model using the Project Explorer.
The BIM user can now develop the model in Advance Steel and link it to the Revit BIM model or can work with the Advance Steel Model as “synced” content so that changes can be automatically updated. This allows for an added level of detail in the BIM model.
A major feature of Autodesk Advance steel is that it can be used to create linked shop drawings extracted from the detailed model and the NC files needed by shop fabricators.
