Floor layout has been changed so that it can better handle situations where the slabplate that represents a concrete structure
In Tekla Structures, a slab is created by picking three or more points.
Slab may be part of a floor, for example.
necks and noses get too narrow on both sides of the slab.
On the Advanced tab, you can now set the minimum required width of a single neck on either side of the slab when there is a large opening in the slab.
If either of the necks on the sides of the opening is smaller than the defined neck width, the neck is cut off completely. In addition, the total width of the necks must be bigger than the minimum slab middle zone neck width, otherwise the slab is split into two separate slabs (the width of the actual opening is the same as the width of the slab).
The handling of the end nose has been improved so that if there are noses on both sides of the slab, these two end noses are checked separately and cut off if the width of the single nose gets smaller than the given minimum required nose width. Earlier the end noses were never cut off, no matter how narrow they were.
