Advance Steel Fundamentals

R7,500.00 ex VAT

Autodesk Advance Steel software is a powerful 3D modeling application that streamlines the fabrication process through the use of a 3D model, which is used to create fabrication drawings, Bill of Materials (BOM) lists, and files for Numerical Control (NC) machines.

Objectives

The objective of the Autodesk Advance Steel Fundamentals course is to enable you to create full 3D project models at a high level of detail and set them up in fabrication drawings. This course focuses on the basic tools that the majority of users need.

Begin by learning the user interface, basic 3D viewing tools, and the standard AutoCAD tools that are routinely used. Specific Autodesk Advance Steel objects, including structural columns, beams, bracing, plates, bolts, anchors, welds, and additional 3D objects are also covered. You will also learn about the powerful model verification tools. To complete the course, you will learn to edit and generate all of the required documentation files that enable your design to accurately and effectively communicate the final design.

Who Should Attend?

This course is great for someone who has experience working with AutoCAD, or someone who has attended AutoCAD Fundamentals training and wants to learn more advanced features in Advanced Steel in order to improve their productivity and proficiency with the program.
