I am a steel detailer owner of a small detailing business. I was using another well know detailing software for the US market but the yearly leasing was getting too expensive for my small operation. I decided to give Advance Steel a try and so far haven't regret it. At this price point you can't beat the quality. It has some fundamental concepts different from the software I used for about 15 years, and even though I've been using Advance Steel for just over a few weeks, I was able to produce decent dwgs and got used to its system. It give you a lot of flexibility for modeling and detailing but you have to learn how to set it up to your needs, a level of customization I didn't have with the other software.
Every detailing software has its own potential and it depends on the user to use it as it maximum. No software is perfect but as far as you know how to work around its imperfections you can be profitable in this tough business.
Advance Steel reduced my software yearly cost 75% and I'm able to share my 3D model, produce NC files and import other models without paying for extra modules
