Description

Description

This class will explore techniques for introducing the use of Advance Steel software into the processes and workflows of a steel fabricator. Steel fabricators typically have very specific standards that govern how their documents look (and what their crews are expecting to see on those documents), what fabrication techniques can be utilized as a result of the available tools, and how to optimize the steel fabrication process and delivery. We will explore how to customize Advance Steel software to accommodate fabricator standards, produce common CNC (computer numerical control) files, and automatically create documents that display the information that fabrication crews can easily read and interpret. The overall goal is to enhance productivity and reduce rework and fabrication errors through customization tools within Advance Steel software.

Target Audience

Target Audience

Steel fabricators and detailers who wish to learn how to implement Advance Steel into their fabricator's processes.
