Course description

Advance Steel - Live Online Training

Advance Steel training for new users, teaching the key functionality, tools, commands and workflows available in Autodesk Advance Steel for designing 3D steel structures and models. 

Working on a sample model being built from the ground up, you’ll learn how to use Advance Steel to create beams, columns, plates, and connection elements such as bolts, holes and welds. You’ll also learn how to produce Bills of Materials, schedules and drawings for your model.

  • Our trainer and the other delegates can see you (via your webcam) and hear you.
  • We’ll provide your training guide as a PDF, and make the course files and resources available for you to download.

  • If you need assistance, you can share your screen with our trainer, and pass control to them.
