"We needed a product that was easy to learn as we were taking this project over from another detailing house. We had an incredibly short lead-in time. We were awarded the project on a Monday and the first drawings were required 9 calendar days later!"
Dave Vout, Bridge Engineer for British Rail and Local Government
Advance Concrete is specifically designed for engineers and structural draftsmen looking for an easy to use piece of software, which has the ability to produce all their construction drawings and is completely integrated into AutoCAD.
100% Dedication to Reinforced Concrete Construction
Perfectly integrated into AutoCAD, Advance Concrete significantly accelerates the initial design phase of buildings by offering detailers and engineers a library of drag and drop structural elements (slabs, beams, point bars, frames, pin bar, strirrups), materials and standard sections.
Once the model is complete, Advance Concrete generates all construction drawings using a large selection of view production tools, dimensions, locations, symbols and automatic layout functions.
Advance Concrete detailing software also integrates seamlessly with
Graitec Advance Steel detailing software for clients that also need a
steel detailing solution in addition to concrete detailing software .
All the necessary tools are provided for fast and efficient modelling. Initial creation of a precise model is important since Advance Concrete will subsequently create all structural and reinforcement drawings from this model. Advance Concrete provides all the specialised functionalities required for the creation of reinforced concrete structures:
Complete library of structural elements (slabs, beams, columns, walls, foundations)
Complete library of openings (doors, windows, depressions, floor openings, niches)
Complete library of hole shapes (rectangular, circular, polygonal)
Materials and sections libraries
Levels management tools
Parametric Reinforcement: Advance Concrete enables assignment of parametric reinforcement attributes for each object (beam, column, openings). Reinforcement drawings are then automatically created! The user can also create custom reinforcement templates and associate them to structural elements.
Dynamic Reinforcement: A new technology that significantly accelerates the creation of reinforcement drawings by automating the placement of reinforcement bars and by keeping drawings up-to-date when projects are modified. It rapidly reinforces standard elements (e.g., beams, columns, footings, etc.) by integrating them in their context, as well as element nodes and junctions (e.g., wall/wall or wall/slab connections), and prefabricated elements.

Advance Concrete can work in 2D or 3D depending on the user's preference and the type of structure being modeled. Advance Concrete supports all basic AutoCAD® concepts and functions (snap points, grip points, copy, etc.).
Advance Concrete integrates the “Model Share” technology - a major innovation allowing splitting big projects in smaller parts, which are then shared and detailed separately by several users simultaneously.
There is no time loss during the project. Short deadlines are successfully met. The collaborative solution ensures faster modelling, allowing the development of more projects in a shorter time.
New elements and modified elements are “published” to the database and become available to all other members of the team only when the draftsman issues the command, when the model is complete and correct.
BIM technology : GRAITEC software interoperability and integration
All Graitec programs can now easily communicate with the new BIM format that allows the exchange of models between applications and also the model's synchronisation, with no data loss and no need to re-input data!
The availability of the aforementioned functionalities depends on the commercial package.
