March 2016 – GRAITEC is excited to announce that today over 1000 downloads of its Revit® and Advance Steel apps and add-ons was reached on the Autodesk App Store.
GRAITEC apps and add-ons for Autodesk flagship products Autodesk® Revit® and Autodesk® Advance Steel include a comprehensive collection of practical tools that help with everyday tasks, such as password protecting Revit® Families, advanced rebar modelling and detailing for Revit®, and even a building designer for Advance Steel which helps the user create an entire steel building in a few minutes.
Available in multiple languages, GRAITEC apps and add-ons are now attracting the attention of users from all disciplines and from all corners of the globe.
Carl Spalding, Product Strategy Director comments “We already see thousands of downloads directly from our own website, but seeing similar numbers achieved from a platform such as the Autodesk Store, which is directly linked to users across the globe, is very encouraging and enabling us to reach a range of new customers.”
With some apps having only been made available for several weeks, such as the apps and add-ons for Autodesk® Advance Steel, the accelerating rate at which GRAITEC apps and add-ons are being downloaded from the Autodesk Store and by users across the globe is extremely encouraging.
Carl continues “With many more tools planned for future releases and new apps due to be added in the coming months, we expect to see the number of downloads accelerate as more and more users turn to the Autodesk® App Store in search of tools that help them get their projects done quicker.”

GRAITEC is delighted to announce its file collaboration and interoperability app for Revit, BIM Connect 2016, is now available as a free download directly from the Autodesk Exchange App Store.
This powerful, free extension for Autodesk® Revit® from GRAITEC provides bi-directional, intelligent Structural Building Information Modeling (BIM) model sharing, including the transfer of FEM results data, between GRAITEC Advance BIM Suite (Advance Design, Arch, SuperSTRESS, …) and Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, Autodesk® Revit® MEP, Autodesk® Revit® Structure and Autodesk® Advance Steel products.
Sharing both the geometrical shapes, including dynamic concrete-section mapping to Revit Families, together with analytical FEM results, creates a new pathway of intelligence-driven BIM workflows which assures a more robust ‘platform’ ready to utilize the high-level of automation promised by next-gen BIM technology.
