Tekla Open API
Tekla Open APIapplication programming interface that lets third-party applications integrate to and communicate with Tekla Structures
Tekla Open API enables, for example, customizing Tekla Structures.
is a specialized Applicationpart of Tekla Structures functionality that is developed in order to extend the capability of Tekla Structures but that is not included in the Tekla Structures installation
Programming Interface (API) developed by Tekla that enables you to develop applications and additional functionality on the Tekla modeling platform and integrate it into your own environment. Tekla Open API is implemented using Microsoft .NET technology.
Applications that are developed with Tekla Open API to work in conjunction with Tekla Structures are called extensions.
With Tekla Open API you can:
Record and run user interface actions
By recording and running user interface actions you can automate routine tasks, such as creating daily reports.
Create automation tools
You can create automation tools for frequently needed objects. With automation tools you can, for example, create basic structures or add typical details to drawings.
Integrate Tekla Structures to other software
You can utilize the Tekla Open API and .NET in transferring information between Tekla Structures and other software, such as Analysis & Design software.
Create new functionality
With Tekla Open API, you can create tools that add new functionality to Tekla Structures.
