Autodesk Advance Steel

Autodesk Advance Steel, Design and Detailing of Steel Structures.

Course Description

The course focuses mainly on providing the student with the tools for modeling and detailing steel structures using Autodesk Advance Steel, incorporating all the members, components, and metal connections that make up a project.

The BIM workflow is established in the Autodesk environment and all the construction plans are obtained for the final delivery of a standard project (plans, elevations, sections, connections, stairs, among others). #AulaGEO

You will learn to:

1. Incorporate different types of steel connections to a 3D model, including all its components (plates, bolts, anchors, and welds)

2. Generate the construction plans of a steel structure project, including the details of the connections used.

3. Create automated drawings from the developed model, with integrated change management.

4. Configure processes and custom drawing styles for the generation of the structural details of the project.

5. Extract reports and lists of materials of the entire project carried out.

6. Apply visual programming in Dynamo for task parameterization and automation.

7. Apply BIM interoperability between Advance Steel and other programs such as Revit and Robot Structural Analysis.
