This App is Available for the Full Version AutoCAD

This Version NOT available for AutoCAD LT



Steel3D-AUS Australian Structural Steel Shapes is an AutoCAD add-on that allows you to easily create 3D models of structural steel shapes. It helps you save time and improve accuracy by eliminating the need to manually create complex steel shapes from scratch.

Steel3D-AUS Structural Steel Shapes created as a 3D solid can be placed as a columns or beams by two methods. By turning on the toggle “Select Lines For Extrusion” you are able to select multiple lines in 3D model space. When the toggle is Off, you place the shape then specify the height by moving the cursor out to the required height or type the height in.

Shapes are created from the dimensional data in the Australian Steel Database. Shape can be automatically rotated about the placement point in the default 45 degree increments after placement. Shapes are placed vertically by selecting the placement point and height of shape. Or, extruded along several lines placed in 3D model space.
