Couple moths ago I was surfing Graitec website & noticed a like called "Graitec Viewer" but it is not there anymore. My question is:
1-Am I correct? Was there such a link?
2-If yes, what was the purpose of it & why it has been removed?

1. Sorry not to see exactly which link you are talking about.

2. Yes, we have a “viewer license” allowing to open Advance Steel projects and to browse the model including object properties. You just need to install Advance Steel and ask for a “Viewer License” to Graitec or an authorized resellers. The license is free of charge.

Best regards,

Will this viewer also allow somebody to see the shop drawings?

Thanks in advance for your response! :o)

You can open the Advance Steel drawings (File > Open) from the "Details" subfolder (where they have been saved), and open/ view them one by one.

I think Bill is asking if third party who dose not have Graitec can open drawings by using Advance Steel Viewer License.

Hello Greg, hello Bill,

I did the test on my side (before posting my comment) with an Advance Steel 2011 viewer license, and I confirm that you can open drawings by using Advance Steel Viewer License.

In complement to Philippe's answer:

For Bill : yes, the Advance Steel viewer license allows you to open and see Advance Steel Models and all Drawings (only see / not modify).

For Greg: without an Advance Steel viewer license, you cannot see an Advance Steel drawing, unless the Advance Steel user has “exploded” his drawing to a standard DWG file. In Advance Steel, there is a simple command to “explode” all (or a set) of drawings as simple DWG. Then, they can be seen and modified by any AutoCAD or AutoCAD LT. But in this case, changes are not synchronized anymore with the model.

Thanks to Phillipe & Manuel's quick respond. Now I'm clear on this issue.
