January 19, 2016 – GRAITEC , international BIM and CAD software developer for AEC, and Autodesk® Platinum Partner in US and across Europe, is delighted to announce the next instalment of the popular add-on for Autodesk® Revit®, GRAITEC Advance PowerPack now includes a considerable range of tools for reinforced concrete modelling and management.
The PowerPack for Revit® includes many tools that generally aid daily practices making it very attractive for any Revit® user looking to save time and improve their experience, but the latest version of the PowerPack for Revit® includes even more general productivity tools aimed at improving every-day use that make it extremely hard for the even the most experienced Revit® user to ignore.
