Unitechnik Export (79) has been improved in the following way:

  • When you used rotation in export, the line attribute override did not take rotation in to account. This has now been fixed.

  • It is now possible to export reinforcement bars as mount parts.

  • Values that are exported in the SLABDATE block are now checked against Unitechnik format constraints for character amount. When any limits are exceeded, user is notified via a console or log filefile that contains information related to changes, actions, and errors in the model or drawing

    Tekla Structures writes information in log files when the model is saved, numbered or checked for clashes, for example.


  • You can now specify the transport pile level number in part user-defined attributes dialog box on the Unitechnik tab. This is an optional field.  If there are elements in the stack that need to be layered on the same level, then the pile level is used. This can be defined in the export settings in the Transport pile level number field to be included as part of SLABDATE block.

  • Cage reinforcement main dimensions are now exported in cage's coordinate system instead of the pallet's coordinate system, according to the Unitechnik 6.1.0 specifications.

Embeds tab:

  • Using the All cutouts as corner symbol, you can  export cutouts as mount parts with corner symbols.

  • Cuts that have been specified with a classpart property that groups parts according to identifiers given by the user

    The identifiers of classes are usually numbers. Classes can be used for defining the color of parts in the model, for example. Class does not influence the numbering of model objects.

    can now be exported in the MOUNT PART block with the option Cutpart former.

  • When exporting rebar as mount part with option Cut outer assemblies, now the correct geometry of rebar is exported.

  • Using the Opening with corner symbols, you can specify classes of embeds that will be exported with corner symbols instead of mount part symbols. Symbol size can be defined in the dialog box.
  • You can now specify embedbuilding object that represents an object that is to be cast into a concrete structure and that is used to connect structures or as an aid when constructing a structure

    For example, a cast-in socket is an embed that is placed in concrete structures to allow parts to be fastened together on site. In Tekla Structures, embeds are typically steel parts and they are added to cast units as sub-assemblies.

    Z positions as Z = 0. Special assembly symbol plotting definition for Z=0 is now PALLET, for Minimum to pallet it is now BOTTOM and for Start point it is now MIDDLE. 

Reinforcement tab:

  • You can now export spacer start position and spacer pitch information with the new settings Spacer start position and Spacer pitch.

Reinf. data specification tab:

  • The new option Welded leg designation can be used for designating the welded leg in bent meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

    In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

    bars. When you select Yes, information about welded leg designation is exported. 

  • In Pull force, specify the attribute from which the strandreinforcement that represents a group of wires spun together

    pull force is to be inquired. In Unitechnik version 6.0, you can set the Unitechnik reinforcement type to 9 in the reinforcing barreinforcement that represents a steel bar used to reinforce a concrete structure

    The steel bars are usually ribbed and they are used to increase the tensile strength of concrete.

    user-defined objects on the Unitechnik page, and then it will be exported as strand reinforcement with its value in KN (taken from UDAobject property created by the user in order to widen the range of predefined object properties

    User-defined attributes are used when the predefined object properties are not sufficient but more properties are needed. For example, comment, locked, and erection status are user-defined attributes.


HEADER block data specification tab: 

  • It is now possible to specify building site and building owner name, address, post code and city/town.

Development area: 
Import, export, interoperability
