Autodesk® Advance Steel structural steel detailing software is built to help structural engineers, detailers, and fabricators more quickly and easily create information-rich building models that can help drive the fabrication of steel components.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process based workflow that helps businesses work more efficiently and helps teams complete projects on time and on budget. Advance Steel helps detailers and fabricators model with intelligence and helps designers and engineers extend their BIM workflows through to detailed modeling.

Student and Educational licensing is available to help students build valuable workplace skills and to prepare them for rewarding careers in architecture, engineering, and the digital arts.
Students and faculty can download free* Autodesk software for personal educational purposes. Student licenses incorporate all the software functionality of our professional licenses, but include a print banner or watermark on output indicating the design was created using a student license version. Autodesk student licenses are available as Stand-Alone only and may not be used in the classroom or lab for instructional purposes, or for commercial or for-profit purposes.
For more information, visit our Education Community.
Educational institutions, students and faculty can receive affordable pricing on a variety of Educational licensing options. Autodesk® Education Suites can be purchased as Stand-Alone, Multi-seat Stand-Alone or Network licenses and give academic institutions access to comprehensive software products and tools. Educational licenses cannot be used for commercial, professional or for-profit purposes.
For more information, visit our Educators page.
*Free Autodesk software is for personal use for education purposes and is subject to the terms and conditions of the end-user license agreement that accompanies download of the software.
Multi-user access is a good choice for companies with multiple teams that need access to the same software deployed through network licenses.
Network licenses aren’t assigned to individual users and can be shared. A subscription with multi-user access supports the use of Autodesk products up to a maximum number of users, or seats, connected to a server network.
The products can be installed on as many computers as you want. However, you can use the software simultaneously only on the number of purchased seats. For example, if you have 6 subscriptions seats and 8 users, all users have access, but only 6 can use the product at any one time. Because you can install the products on more systems than the number of subscription seats purchased, you get true floating licenses across your entire organisation. There is no internet connection required for Multi-user licenses to operate.
Single-user access is a good choice for organisations that need one or more stand-alone licenses.
These licenses are assigned to individual users and can’t be shared. Customers must connect to the internet every 30 days to validate their Autodesk ID.
These subscriptions cost less than subscriptions with multi-user access. You can sign in to your Autodesk Account from anywhere, and download and install the software assigned to you from any device. So, for example, you can use your Autodesk product on your work computer and also on your personal computer at home.
