Autodesk Advance Steel Tutorial/Video required

Recommended Posts

Good day

 

Will someone please help.

 

Could you propose a tutorial or video that demonstrates how to design a simple lattice structure from scratch (not import) - in Autodesk Advance Steel (any edition but later preferred)?

 

I am currently proposing to my superior that our division acquire Autodesk Advance Steel instead using Autodesk Inventor as a more suitable alternative - for the purpose of detailing lattice structures that will support electrical substation equipment.

 

However, I need to convince them that this is a suitable product (or not), for which I need help in drawing a prototype structure using a 30-day trial.

 

All of the tutorials I could find only show how to design building/warehouse structures - but no small/medium lattice supports (examples attached).

 

Those tutorials are unsuitable - the upright columns are shown using I-beams instead of angles, the connections are way too complex showing gussets instead of simple bolt connections, and I cannot find info on how one would go about constraining to a three-dimensional (not 2D) grid.

 

My requirements for Autodesk Advance Steel:

- steel lattice design (e.g. electrical substation support, isolator support, transformer support)

- simple connection (e.g. angle to angle bolted connection)

- 3D grid (or skeleton) constrained design (i.e. overall dimensions can drive design)

- arrayed braces (if possible).
