What is a 3D model

Using Tekla Structures, you can create a real-life model of any structure. The 3D model contains all the information that is needed to manufacture and construct the structure, including:

  • Geometry and dimensions

  • Profiles and cross sections

  • Connection types

  • Materials

The 3D model is the single source of information for drawings and other outputs, such as reports and NC data files. This ensures that the information in drawings and reports is always up to date, as they react to modifications in the model.
