Whether it is to be used for initial setting-out in order to get costings or to cycle through design options or progress the structure through to fabrication detail, the Steel Structure Designer delivers considerable clout. This is just the beginning, we are only just starting to scratch the surface - the power of this tool gives an idea of just what customers can expect from GRAITEC Advance BIM Designers, as these apps mature and more capability is added.
