"Considering the model complexity, we needed a program with a powerful calculation engine on one hand, and advanced modelling and post-processing functionalities on the other."
Diana Zagaican, Inginerie Structurala
Advance Design was specifically developed for industry professionals who require a superior solution for the structural analysis and design of Reinforced Concrete and Steel Structures.
Advance Design Features include easy modelling, a powerful FEM analysis engine, top-level design wizards, automated post processing of results and automated reports. Achieve a new level of computer assisted engineering with Advance Design!

Fast and easy modelling
- Display mode of elements as "linear contour", "hidden faces" or "realistic rendering",
- Elements snap points enables different actions: stretch, trim or extend, copy, move, etc.,
- Use of multiple viewpoints enables simultaneous work in several viewpoints and visualisation modes,
- Ability to input elements in a 2D workplane or in a user defined coordinate system (Cartesian or polar)
- Level concept: input a column using a single click or a wall using just two.
Rapid results display
All available results are readily accessible from the toolbar. Rotate the model in 3D and the real-time results remain displayed on the screen.
Design elements can be rendered using linear contour or realistic display modes regardless of design complexity!
Dynamic model manipulation
Using this simple toolbar, move, zoom and rotate around the model.
Customisable user interface
Customise the user interface by modifying the content and the position of menus, icons, toolbars, etc.
Each object has a context menu accessed using a single click and offering different functions: copy, move, change local axes, and generate a load or support.
Dynamic properties window
When selecting several elements, the common properties of these elements will be displayed and can be modified simultaneously.
Store genuine post-processing methods. In addition to the design calculations, the stored post-processing methods will be re-applied and the design documents will be automatically updated.
Specify, as needed, the level parameters and work with a 2D drawing: a column with 1 click, a slab with 2!
Advanced design reports
The desired design report, containing concise result tables and images, can be obtained with little effort and can be edited in Word or Excel. All of the report's parameters are stored in memory and the report is recreated after each design calculation.
Mesher / Solver
Refined progressive meshing, density specified for each side...Advance Design speeds up the meshing step of your projects. The solver's new memory management allows the handling of very complex designs.
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.
GRAITEC Advantage is our annual maintenance programme, giving you access to all the latest Graitec software developments. Each time a new release is launched you will recieve it, with its accompanying documents.
