AutoDesk Advance Steel 2018 X32 (32bit) (Product Key And Xforce Keygen)


How to Use AutoDesk Advance Steel 2018 X32 for Steel Detailing and Fabrication

AutoDesk Advance Steel 2018 X32 is a leading edge steel construction application designed for steel professionals. It provides a simple, user-friendly working environment for creating 3D structural models from which drawings are created[^1^]. You can create and store the 3D model in a DWG drawing format, which is compatible with other AutoDesk products such as Revit and AutoCAD[^2^].

In this article, we will show you how to use AutoDesk Advance Steel 2018 X32 for steel detailing and fabrication, from creating the model to generating the shop drawings and NC files. We will also show you how to connect your workflow with other tools in the AEC Collection, such as Revit, Navisworks, Robot Structural Analysis, and Autodesk Docs[^2^].

Creating the Model

To create the model, you can use the library of parametric steel connections and dedicated tools to accelerate design and other tasks. You can also use the Dynamo Extension for Advance Steel to generate complex structures in fewer steps[^2^]. You can access the Advance Steel tools from the ribbon or the tool palette.

Some of the main tools you can use are:

The Connection Vault, which contains hundreds of predefined connections that you can apply to your model elements.

The Joint Design, which allows you to check and optimize the design of your connections according to various codes and standards.

The Stairs and Railings, which helps you create complex staircases and railings with automatic connections and dimensions.

The Gratings, which enables you to create different types of gratings with various shapes and sizes.

The Roof and Wall Panels, which allows you to create roof and wall cladding systems with custom profiles and patterns.

The Folded Plates, which helps you create folded plates with different shapes and thicknesses.

Generating the Shop Drawings and NC Files

Once you have created the model, you can automatically generate and update steel fabrication deliverables, such as shop drawings, bills of materials, NC files, and DXF files. You can use the Document Manager to manage these documents and make single-click adjustments after model changes[^1^].

Some of the main features you can use are:

The Drawing Style Manager, which allows you to customize the appearance and content of your drawings according to your standards and preferences.

The Drawing Process Manager, which enables you to batch process multiple drawings at once with predefined or custom settings.

The BOM Editor, which helps you edit and format your bills of materials according to various templates and options.

The NC-DSTV Export, which allows you to export NC files for CNC machines in DSTV format.

The DXF Export, which enables you to export DXF files for CNC machines or other CAD software.

Connecting Your Workflow with Other Tools in the AEC Collection

To connect your workflow with other tools in the AEC Collection, you can use the interoperability features of Advance Steel. You can share, refine, and sync design data with Revit, AutoCAD, Navisworks, Robot Structural Analysis, and Autodesk Docs. This way, you can improve communication between steel engineers, designers, and detailers, as well as coordinate between multi-discipline models to check for errors[^2^].

Some of the main features you can use are:

The Revit-AutoCAD-Advance Steel Link, which allows you to import Revit models into AutoCAD or Advance Steel, or export AutoCAD or Advance Steel models into Revit. You can also synchronize changes between these models using bidirectional links.

The Navisworks-AutoCAD-Advance Steel Link, which enables you to import Navisworks models into AutoCAD or Advance Steel, or export AutoCAD ec8f644aee
