As the structural steel industry adopts more BIM-based solutions, technology providers are finding creative ways to deliver more integrated solutions to their customers. An example of this is a new international collaboration and partnership between the software providers IDEA RS and GRAITEC Group.
The 2018 release of GRAITEC’s Advance Design platform will deliver a new, powerful application for structural engineers involved in steel joint design called Advance Design Connection. Advance Design Connection is a unique version of IDEA StatiCa Connection, rebranded and tailor-made for GRAITEC users in France, UK, Germany, USA, Canada, Brazil, Poland, Italy, Romania, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
