GRAITEC Steel Structure Designer creates complete steel frame buildings in minutes, and the new option to save your building designs to a library means you can now load an entire building in seconds and then simply fine tune for the next project. Manage levels, bays, a range of options to add platforms, bracings, side-rails and roof purlins (automatically adjusted along a curved roof), gable ends as well as openings for doors and windows. You can even apply cladding to fit the shape of you building trimmed around openings in a single click. The GRAITEC Steel Structure Designer is an essential tool for engineers and detailers looking to save hours (days perhaps) during the design process when creating any type of steel structure.

The Steel Structure Designer uses the range of Autodesk Advance Steel profiles library, including user sections and light-gauge (cold-formed) sections, making it possible to configure buildings to suit any requirement - making this a must-have tool for any busy Advance Steel office and instantly attractive to users across the globe.
