With Revit 2017 Autodesk delivered an extension allowing users to create steel connections in Revit. This functionality gives engineers the ability to model their steel designs to a higher level of detail. For an upcoming release, we are bringing even more capabilities and functionalities to the steel environment, including:
- Free-modeling miscellaneous steel elements like bolts and plates
- Ability to create cuttings and drillings on steel elements
- Continuous interoperability between Advance Steel and Revit
- 133 types of standard steel connections as parametrized objects
- Access to individual parts of connection
- Ability to create dimensions, tags and schedules for individual parts of a connection
