There is now Revit 2018 South African Steel content! That support’s structural connections! And have a section code!

This is great news for Revit 2018 users.

South African structural engineers still on previous versions typically use the British Standard to represent our South African Standard as most of the shape codes are similar (the British shapes are a little bit more conservative so factor of safety is appropriate).
