GRAITEC Advance 2012 version release

GRAITEC Advance 2012 version release

GRAITEC, european software developer for modeling and drawing creation for the construction industry, announces the release of the GRAITEC Advance 2012 suite.

Specifically designed for building and construction professionals, the GRAITEC Advance suite provides a complete environment for designing, detailing and creating all design and fabrication documents for reinforced concrete, steel and timber structures.

GRAITEC Advance aims primarily to improve the productivity of its users, help them reduce design errors and increase the quality of project documentation. GRAITEC Advance meets the requirements for the most demanding professionals and its ergonomics are designed to make it easy to learn and use. The suite is based on the implementation of a digital model (BIM / Building Information Model). This technology associates each real object to its virtual equivalent in the digital model and users have the opportunity to simulate the behavior of the real structure and automate many processes. With open BIM standards, Advance can also be used with the Autodesk Revit suite for the structural analysis and design and document creation of models created in Revit.

Version 2012 represents a key milestone in the development of GRAITEC. In fact, the new Advance Steel software architecture allows it to work without an AutoCAD® license. This innovation frees up AutoCAD® licenses for other uses in the design office. In addition it offers an economic advantage to companies without AutoCAD® licenses or that do not have updated AutoCAD® licenses.

Major investments were also made to simplify usability and improve performances for all products of the suite. Version 2012 also continues to introduce new design codes in order to meet the productivity and quality demands required by a market increasingly more international.

Advance Steel 2012: CAD platform freedom
Advance Steel® is specifically designed for steel professionals who require an easy-to-use 3D structural steel detailing software for automating drawing production.
Historically based on the AutoCAD® platform, Advance Steel 2012 allows users to use their software with or without AutoCAD®. In fact, the product includes its own graphics engine, and the user can select the desired CAD platform. Regardless of the selected platform, all the essential functionality of the software is retained, as well as DWG® compatibility.
Version 2012 also has many other improvements and innovations requested by customers all around the world, for example, the option to group similar connections to manage and change them in a single operation.

Advance Concrete 2012: increased performance
Advance Concrete® is specifically designed for structural engineers and reinforced concrete detailers who require professional and easy-to-use 3D software for automating drawing creation.
With Version 2012, significant work was done on the software architecture and performance optimization. All areas have been reworked: launch of the software, file opening, project navigation, creation of new views, reinforcement implementation, etc. This results in a significantly higher ease of use and increased efficiency for users.

Advance Design 2012: international codes and EC5 timber calculation
Advance Design® is specifically dedicated to structural engineers who require a professional and easy-to-use solution for simulating and optimizing all their projects.
The first focus of development of Advance Design 2012 was its internationalization. The software is available in German, English, French, Polish, Romanian and Czech. All National Appendices of these countries are available for Eurocodes 0, 1, 2, 3 and 8. Advance Design 2012 also performs the analysis and design of concrete and steel structures in accordance with U.S. standards ACI (for reinforced concrete) and AISC (for steel construction).

Advance Design 2012 also provides to users a new design module for timber frames to Eurocode 5 (German, English, French, Romanian and Czech National Appendices). It optimizes the sections of timber parts with verification of resistance, stability (buckling / lateral-torsional buckling) and determination of residual sections for fire verification.
