Advance Steel also offers interoperability with Revit and GRAITEC Advance Design software to support a more connected BIM workflow. Advance Steel Autodesk Advance Steel is a specialised software package for Steel detailing, architectural metalwork, Autodesk-Advance Steel Double Platform 6. ProgramData/Autodesk/Advance Steel folder is kept intact. elements will only get one shop drawing: an assembly drawing, so they will have a “Single.
The main functions of Advance Steel concern: Creation of 3D model using a library of construction elements i. Sheet metal and plate work Advanced tools for element collision detection. Clear workshop drawings, automatically labeled and dimensioned. Checking the model in order to insure a correctly built 3D model and accurate bills of materials. Automatic creation of general arrangement and shop drawings, fabrication drawings, fitting drawings, isometric views and fabrication drawings.
Drawing creation workflow management revision control, automatic update, etc. Multi-User Technology - all users involved in a project can work simultaneously and securely on the same model, without errors. Advance Steel provides instruments for modeling complex structures such as straight and spiral stairs, railings, ladders, etc.
The program creates all necessary documents including NC files for the stair fabrication. Structure with connections, modeled in Advance Steel. Parametric steel connections Advance Steel has a library of more than preset parametric steel connections to connect Advance elements grouped in the following categories: The user creates all connecting elements by a single operation.
At the same time, the connected elements are processed shortened, coped, etc. The software allows users to customize the connections: Set the parameters of the joint; Process the connected elements; Transfer the properties from one steel connection to another; Update the steel connection; Joint Design engine The software dimensions and checks joints according to Eurocodes 3 standards and AISC North American standards. A design report can be created.
Drawing styles Based on a 3D-model, dimensioned and labeled 2D general arrangement and shop drawings can be automatically created using drawing styles. The drawings are created in separate DWG files; however they are linked to track changes. Thus, the drawings can be updated after any model modifications and the drawing revision can be managed.
The software has a variety of predefined drawing styles for the creation of general arrangement drawings and shop drawings for single parts and assemblies. A drawing style is a set of rules used to create a detail drawing and defines the elements that are displayed including labeling and dimensioning preferences.
Drawing styles provide the option to automatically create drawings and to modify the layout exactly to user requirements. Drawing styles are used in a similar way to AutoCAD dimension styles, line styles, etc. The predefined drawing styles are different for each installation and country. Custom drawing styles can also be defined.
Here are more details concerning each of the parts. Point or the tip The dart point is usually a plastic for the soft tip darts or a steel point for the steel tip darts.
Both the plastic and steel one can be used on the traditional dart boards when playing. However, the steel tip dart is never used on soft tip dart board since it can cause permanent damage to the dart board. Some of the dart points are normally removable while others are integrated permanently into the barrel.
Darts might also have moveable or fixed points. The moveable points can retract slightly into the barrels when an impact is felt. The slight retraction enables the dart to continue its forward motion even after hitting a hard surface.
Barrel A dart barrel comes in a variety of sizes, styles, grips and materials. The weight of a dart is mostly determined by the weight of the barrel as they mostly range between 16 and 30 grams.
There are other that are heavier and others lighter than this. The common materials used include brass, plastic, wood, nickel-silver as well as tungsten. The brass barrels are cheap and durable, although they are susceptible to corrosion. The nickel-silver barrels are harder and corrosion resistant than the brass ones.
However, they are a bit expensive. Tungsten barrel is said to be the best desirable barrel material. Shaft This is similar to barrels. They also come in various materials, lengths as well as styles. The commonly used shaft materials include aluminum, titanium, nylon and plastic. The most popular one is aluminum. The length of the shaft may affect the stability of your dart in flight.
A longer shaft may reduce the effects of crowding, although they may cause the dart to fish-tail while in the air. This may destabilize your accurate throw and hence shorter shafts may work better. The shaft styles include spinning, adjustable lengths and replaceable shafts.
Flight The dart flights normally come in various textures and shapes. The most commonly used shapes are Slim and Standard. Other shapes include the Pear, Kite, Vector and Vortex. The flight textures include nylon, smooth, dimplex and more others.
Smaller and smoother flights allow the dart to go through the air faster. Conversely, the larger and more textured flights can make the darts to fly slower through the air. Generally, the smaller flights such as slims are mostly used with shorter shafts and lighter darts while the larger flights are mostly used with longer shafts and heavier darts.
