Advance Steel Plug-in

Advance Steel Plug-in

Autodesk, Inc.



With the Advance Steel Plug-in, Autodesk® Revit® users can quickly connect their models to Advance Steel using the export, import, and synchronize features to transfer the model BIM data. This interoperability allows users to rapidly produce general arrangement drawings, fabrication drawings, BOMs, and NC files for steelstructures.  


The synchronization of BIM data between applications also reduces the risk of potential errors when there are modifications as users can track changes made on the same model in different applications.


The BIM data from the Revit model can be imported or exported using the Advance Steel Plug-in as well as other formats such as SDNF (Version 2.0 and Version 3.0), CIS/2, IFC, and PSS.

  • Advance Steel 2016
    Aleksei Tkachenko | February 01, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Is it possible to synchronize models between Revit 2015 and Advance Steel 2016. I can only export in *.gtc files from Revit 2015. And Advanced Steel exports only *.smlx files so that I can export model from Revit 2015 to Advance Steel 2016, but cannot import this model to Revit again.

    .gtc(x) is compatible with .smlx so you should be able to change the extension of the file manually.
