Our customers say it best

Using the Powerpack for Advance Steel has enabled our design team to streamline certain aspects of the design process that are not available with the stand-alone version of Advance Steel

Ryan Green, Project Manager, Walker Engineering NW ltd

The Powerpack for Advance Steel is the only way to detail stairs and railings quickly and efficiently. Detailing of stairs and railings generally is much more time consuming in comparison to structural steel, especially when alterations are required. The PowerPack greatly reduces time spent detailing, updating, and making alterations.

Complement and balance your projects perfectly
with PowerPack for Advance Steel.

Modeling Tools

Boost productivity and accuracy using simple and intuitive modeling tools. Commands include Beam Repeated or Beam Continuous for creating straight and curved/poly beams, as well as the more complex sections of Corrugated, Castellated, Cellular, or Beam with Openings.

Connection Vault

Save time with parametric and intelligent advanced connections that extend the standard Advance Steel library. Examples are Threaded Rod Connection, Tube to Tube Connection, Purlin Connection, Plates on Profile, Plate for Multiple Bracings, Curved End Plate – Plate & Grating Stiffeners.

Platform Cover Creator

Speed up design by automatically creating grating or plate covers based on selected members. Platform Cover Creator is a versatile tool that gives the user possibilities: Create covers even if the contours are not closed; Split covers directly from the joint by beams or by points; Add bolts on edges; Add additional contours.


Be more productive when sending files to third-party applications for the fabrication process. When formats are requested by manufacturers for designing molds or for pricing manufactured parts, the export in IGES and STEP formats helps.

Stairs and Railings

See how easy it can be to customize stairs and railings with a consistent structure. Interface elements provide numerous features and options for configuration of the required structure, with editable parameters (dimensions, steps, treads, strides, connection types).
