Advance Steel 2017 Extension

Advance Steel 2017 Extension

Autodesk, Inc.



With Advance Steel 2017 Extension, Autodesk® Revit® 2017 users can quickly connect their models to Advance Steel 2017 using the export, import and synchronize functionalities to transfer the model BIM data in LOD350 for Structural Steel. This interoperability helps users to more rapidly produce general arrangement drawings, fabrication drawings, BOMs, and NC files for steel structures.   

Using synchronization of BIM data between applications users can update the modifications without having to reimport the entire structure. Synchronization also reduces the risk of potential errors by offering the possibility to track changes made on the same model in different applications. 


Using Advance Steel 2017 Extension, the BIM data from the Revit model can be imported or exported also in other formats such as SDNF (Version 2.0 and Version 3.0), CIS2 and PSS.

    Hi Staff, I am here to claim about the defect on the add-in tool, Advanced Steel Extension 2016 & 2017. I installed them onto my computer which I use Revit 2016 and Revit 2017 in Japanese. However, as soon as I installed them then all pop-up messages are shown in English but not warnings. As I uninstalled them then the issue was solved. So far I found this defect in both Revit 2016 and Revit 2017 which are one-box. It is pretty annoying for Japanese Users so it would be great that if the problem can be fixed.
