- The add-on lets users create ball post railing systems in their building information modeling (BIM) designs.
For more information and to download the Ball Post Railing Designer add-on for Advance Steel, check out the GRAITEC website.
- Recently, French BIM and CAD software vendor GRAITEC announced the Ball Post Railing Designer add-on.
- Custom systems have options for various aspects of the design process, including:
Much like in earlier discussions about the benefits of ready-made BIM content, the Ball Post Railing Designer app is intended as a time-saving concept.
- The aptly named software is an extension for Autodesk Advance Steel 2016 which can be downloaded for free.

Mapping the World in 3D — with Drones? > ENGINEERING.com
- In fact, these UAVs (or drones, as they are commonly called) will soon be able to see and map the world in 3D using reality capture software.
- This is where the reality capture drone comes in.
- These reality capture drones, capable of easily rendering flat photographs into 3D models, will have the ability to collect information on a scale previously thought difficult or impossible.
- Drones are to be fitted with Leica’s RCD30 Oblique camera for 3D urban mapping.
- They will also be equipped with Acute3D’s ContextCapture software, which is designed to produce high-resolution 3D models from photographs without human intervention.
Top five things to see this week: The Goods Line, Arj Barker and Montaigne
