Robot-AdvanceSteel Link 2020

Win64, English

Autodesk, Inc.
Robot-AdvanceSteel Link enables data exchange between Autodesk® Advance Steel and Autodesk® Robot™ Structural Analysis (Robot), through a set of functionalities like import, export and synchronize.

General Usage Instructions

With Robot-AdvanceSteel Link, you can export a Robot structural model using the smlx format. You can then import the smlx file in Advance Steel in order to detail steel connections and automatically generate fabrication documents. From Robot, you can export values of internal forces with the model to the smlx file. After importing the file to Advance Steel, you can use these values to perform code checking of connections.


Conversely, you can export a model from Advance Steel in order to perform structural analysis and code checking in Robot.


You can also track changes in the same model in both applications using the synchronization feature.


Robot-AdvanceSteel Link 2020 will work only with Robot 2020.
