Advance Steel 2016 Extension

Advance Steel 2016 Extension

Autodesk, Inc.

Digitally signed app




With Advance Steel 2016 Extension, Autodesk® Revit® 2016 users can quickly connect their models to Advance Steel 2016 using the export, import, and synchronize functionalities to transfer the model BIM data. This interoperability allows users to rapidly produce general arrangement drawings, fabrication drawings, BOMs, and NC files for steel structures.   

The synchronization of BIM data between applications allows the user to 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 2016 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, IFC, and PSS.

  • Import Plant 3D structure
    l chy | April 19, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    After I use the Advance Steel XML Export to export the structure elements ,transform to smlx, in AutoCAD Plant 3D 2016. But I can't import the smlx file to Revit straight , it just show a window with "Advance Steel Extension encounted an error. We are sorry for the inconvenience". When I modify the same smlx file model in Advance Steel, save it, and it can be import to Revit. Is that features of the Advance Steel XML Export in Plant 3D get something wrong or error or some bug?
