Course Aim

This easy-to-follow course is a perfect hands-on accompaniment to learning, aimed at helping all structural detailing practitioners, whatever their skill levels, to quickly become proficient with 3D modelling, detailing and the production of fabrication drawings and NC files, using the Autodesk Advance Steel platform. This course demonstrates in practical terms, the workflow of design to detailing to fabrication. Every chapter explains the fundamentals of the software, in the context of developing and connecting a structure, from the initial project setup through to the production of fabrication information, model transfer with Revit and interoperability with Manufacturing Information Systems (MIS).

Individual modules contain clear learning objectives with practical task based step-by-step examples, covering the software's core features and functionality, ensures you are productive from the very start of your learning. You can either work through every lesson to complete the full course, or individual lessons on the specific skills you need. The course contains helpful tips and tricks and will be an invaluable reminder of the topics covered in your learning and a source of reference for years to come.
