Tekla Structures 2016 US environments Release Notes

Table of Contents

  1. Common to all US Roles
  2. Steel Detailing Role
  3. Engineering Role
  4. Precast Detailing Role
  5. Cast In Place Role / Rebar Detailing Role

1   Common to all US Roles

The following items have changed in the US environments for this version.

  • The Contractor role has been relocated to the Tekla Warehouse.
  • A new Rebar Detailing role has been cloned from the Cast In Place role. The only difference between these roles is their names.
  • The Full_Model model templatemodel which is used as a basis for creating new models

    The user can save a model including all its elements, such as object properties, certain settings, parts, and components, in a model template.

    has been removed. Now every model template in the US environments contain all the US custom components so this model template is now longer needed.

1.1   Environment ini files

The following variable was added to the US environment ini files:

- Added 

1.2   Catalogs

Profile Catalog

The following profiles were modified/added in the US environments:

- Added

The following Jumbo W and L shapes have been added. (usimp only)

A new parametric Nut and Washer sketch have been added.

The content of the profil/CISC folder has been moved to the Tekla Warehouseservice for collaboration and for storing and sharing Tekla Structures content

In Tekla Warehouse the content items are stored in collections. Tekla Warehouse includes the Tekla Warehouse Service and the Tekla Warehouse web site.

Tekla Warehouse is one of the Tekla online services.

.

The following Analysis values were causing issues with Staad interoperability. Since these values where not being utilized anywhere else, they were cleared out.

  • Normalized warpingdeforming that twists the part by rotating the ends of the part

    constant
  • Plastic modulus, x
  • Plastic modulus, y
  • Statical moment 1
  • Statical moment 2
  • Torsional constant
  • Warping constant
  • Warping statical moment

Rebar Shape Manager

Spiral shape recognition has been added to the Rebar Shape Managertool that is used for customizing the bending shapes of reinforcing bars

Rebar shape manager can be used for bending shapes only and not for any other reinforcing bar properties.

such that when a spiral bar is modeled, the diameter, length and number of turns are appropriately reported in a bend table.

Applications and Components Catalog

With the introduction of the new Applications and Components catalog located in the side pane, several additions/changes were made to help with the adoption of this new way of accessing applications and components. See version 21.1 release notes for how this was introduced in the US environments

  • Each role has it's own group of the same name in this cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

    For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.

    .
  • Each role uses a shared Custom Components group.
  • Each role uses a shared Macrosaved series of actions that includes instructions for a program

    Macros are located in the applications and components catalog. They are recorded or created manually and stored as .cs file in a folder defined with the advanced option XS_MACRO_DIRECTORY.

    Macros can, for example, be used for creating drawings or reports.

    Macros are sometimes used to run an application.

    group
  • Groups, Custom Components, and Macros associated with other roles will be hidden from the current role.
For example, when you on in the Steel Detailing role, you will see the following:

 
If you select the Show hidden items check box at the box of the catalog you will have access to the other role groups, custom components and macros.

The Custom Componentcomponent that the user creates and uses for creating model objects whose composition the user can modify as a group

group will only be available if you create your model using a US model template. All US model templates contain all US custom components but the model template controls which custom components are visible by default.

Grayed out items don't mean you can't use them, it only means that they are hidden by default in the role/model template you are using. Just toggle the Show hidden items check box and click on the component that you want to insert into your model.

1.3   Modeling

Due to the default 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.

color changes, the following common Steel and Concrete attributes have been updated.

Attribute name Part Type Class Changes
 Cip_Column  Concrete Column  now class 1 - was class 8
 standard  Concrete Column  now class 1 - was class 8

The objects are grouped based on different characteristics in models and in drawings. Examples of model object types are beams and rebar sets. Examples of drawing object types are parts and marks.

, a Parameter tab has been added with basic attributes.

1.5   Macros

Inside the Applications and Components catalog, you will now find only one Macros group which contains all the US environment macros.

Depending on which role you are using will affect which macros are visible. To see the full list of macros click the Show hidden items check box located at the bottom of the Applications and Components catalog.

- New

Two new macros have been added to the US environments. 

1.6   Components

  • Component Concrete stairs (7) - has been added back for use in the US environments

Custom Components

  • All US custom component help files are now located in the Tekla User Assistanceonline help and self-support service for Tekla Structures

    Tekla User Assistance includes instructions, support articles, and instructional videos, and it offers a possibility for feedback.

    Tekla User Assistance is one of the Tekla online services.

    site and their help buttons will now open in the new location.

1.7   Templates

    , Pour Typeproperty of a pour object that uses a cast-in-place part name or a manually given value to describe the pour object

    By default the part name is used for pour type. The part name used is the name of the part with the largest volume in the pour object.

    , etc.
  • Contentattributes_us_roles.lst - updated to support new flexible drawing switches and north arrow switch.

1.8   Drawing Layouts

The following drawing layouts have been removed. For users who have drawing attributes in their Firm or Project folderfolder that is used for storing Tekla Structures-related files customized for a particular project

that use these old layouts and the associated templates, see Section 1.9 below for a list of Tekla Warehouse collections which can be downloaded and used in version 2016. This primarily affects those who use the Steel Detailing role.

1.9   Warehouse Collections

In the event that you have your own drawing settingssettings that control what the drawing looks like and what it includes

Drawing settings can be defined in the modeling mode when creating a drawing, and they can be modified in the drawing mode.

The range of the objects and elements that drawing settings affect may vary.

that used the old layouts and templates that were removed in v2016, then you may need one of these bundles. If you create a drawing in v2016 and the drawing layoutplan of a drawing that includes the table layout and definitions of the sheet size

Tekla Structures includes several predefined drawing layouts, which are drawing-type specific. The user can also create new drawing layouts.

or templates are missing, they we recommend that you update your drawing layout to use the cooresponding new layout as explained above. This primarily affects those who use the Steel Detailing role.

If for some reason you are opening a model in v2016 that was created in a previous version (which is not recommended) and that model contains drawings, then it is possible that you will need one of the bundles available in this collection on the Tekla Warehouse. Simply insert the contents of the bundle into your model folderfolder that is used for storing files associated with a model

Tekla Structures stores all files associated with a model in a folder it creates with the same name as the model database (.db1).

In multi-user mode all users access the same model folder.

(templates in model folder, all other files in attributes folder).

Drawing Style Templates (for transition to v2016)

2   Steel Detailing     

2.1   Steel Detailing Role

The Steel Detailing Role was created to include only the items needed to use Tekla Structures for Steel Detailing and Steel Fabrication. This Role combines the contents of the environment folders with the contents of the us_roles\steel folders. The Role_Steel_Detailing.ini file located in the usimp (usmet) folder runs after the env_US_imperial.ini (env_US_metric.ini) file is run. 

The following variables were modified in this role’s ini file:

Modified
  • XS_DEFAULT_MODEL_TEMPLATE - this variable was updated to use the new name of this role's default model template (Steel Detailing).

2.2   Model Template

The Steel Detailing role’s model template has been renamed Steel Detailing, previously was named STL_DetailingTemplate. It has been updated to support the new Applications and Components catalog and include a default project thumbnail.

2.3   User-Defined Attributes

There are no role specific User-Defined attributeobject 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.

changes that affect Steel Detailing other than those mention above in the Common section.

Project Properties

More Flexible Drawing Styles

We have received many request to make the five default drawing styles more flexible. Therefore we have modified them to give users more options. Instead of five sets of drawings styles, users now have the options to mix and match.

Choose which BOM style you want (for example, Style 3)...

...and choose a different style for your Title Block (for example, Style 2).

Lastly, choose the style for your single part drawing Title Block/BOM. 

Even though these options are available in all roles, they primarily affects those who use the Steel Detailing role.

North Arrow Switch

Previously you had to change a GA drawingdrawing that is created from one or more model views and that shows information needed to understand the general arrangement of structural elements on a project

General arrangement drawings show how parts, assemblies, cast units, or pour objects are located in a building.

's table layoutplan that defines the selection, placing, and scale of tables in a drawing

to show a north arrow on your drawing. We have made this easier by included the north arrow template into the default GA drawing layout. The visibility of the north arrow is hidden by default but if you want to include it on your GA drawings, just set this switch to Yes. The angle of rotation is controlled in the Options dialog box (File menu > Settings Options).

Even though this option is available in all roles, it primarily affects those who use the Steel Detailing role.

2.4   Reports

A NEW report has been added to the Steel Detailing role.

  • 351   Surfacing type list by Assemblies

2.5   Templates

- Added

The following templates have been added to the US environments.

  • TypeA-Drg_BOM_wNutsWashers - this template is not used by any table layout. To utilize it, you'll need to add it to one.
  • TypeA-Drg_DoubleBOM - this template is used in the table layout named DoubleBOM24x36 (inside the AssemblyDrawings layout).

- Updated and Renamed

In order to support the new flexible drawing switches, mentioned later in the Steel Detailing section, the following templates were modified and renamed. The old templates have been removed from the US environments but are available in the Tekla Warehouse. See Section 1.9 above for an explanation of what these collections include and help on determing which one you might need. This primarily affects those who use the Steel Detailing role.

3   Engineering     

3.1   Engineering Role

The Engineering Role was created to include items an engineer needs to use Tekla Structures. This Role combines the contents of the environment folders with the contents of the us_roles\engineering folders. The Role_Engineering.ini file, located in the usimp (usmet) folder, runs after the env_US_imperial.ini (env_US_metric.ini) file is run.

The following variables were modified in this role’s ini file:

- Modified
  • XS_DEFAULT_MODEL_TEMPLATE - this variable was updated to use the new name of this role's default model template (Engineering).

3.2   Model Templates 

The Engineering role’s model template has been renamed Engineering, previously was named ENG_BaseTemplate. It has been updated to support the new Applications and Components catalog and include a default project thumbnail.

3.3   Modeling

Due to the default class color changes, the following concrete attributes have been updated.

Attribute name Part Type Class Changes
 Cip_Column  Concrete Column  now class 1 - was class 8
 Cip_Pier  Concrete Column  now class 1 - was class 8
 Masonry_Block  Concrete Column  now class 1 - was class 8
 Masonry_Block_half  Concrete Column  now class 1 - was class 8
 Precast_Column  Concrete Column  now class 8 - was class 13
 Pad_Footing  Pad Footing  now class 1 - was class 8
 standard  Pad Footing  now class 1 - was class 8
 standard  Strip Footing  now class 1 - was class 8
 Strip_Footing  Strip Footing  now class 1 - was class 8
 Strip_Footing_Keyway  Strip Footing  now class 1 - was class 8
 Cip_RetainingWall  Concrete Panel  now class 1 - was class 8
 Cip_ShearWall  Concrete Panel  now class 1 - was class 8

3.4   User-Defined Attributes

The Project Properties changes mentioned in the Steel Detailing section above are accessible in the Engineering role. However drawings created with the Engineering role, using the provided drawing settings, are not affected by these switches. This is because they use their own layout named Engineering which is not using the templates controlled by the Project Properties User-defined attribute switches. You would need to change the drawing layout to GA_Drawings in order to have those switches affect the drawing created in the Engineering role. 

Part Design Attributes

All Attributes found on "Design" tabs has been set to affect numberingprocess of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

except the following:

  • Design Groupgroup of physical parts that Tekla Structures uses when it searches for optimal profiles for steel parts and optimal reinforcement for concrete parts

    Mark
  • Design Name

3.5   Reports

Three NEW reports have been added for use in the Engineering role.

  • 351   Surfacing type list
  • 351   Surfacing type list by Assemblies
  • 351   Surfacing type list by Cast Units

3.6   Drawings

All GA drawing attributes have been updated to be compatible with v2016.

4   Precast Detailing     

4.1   Precast Detailing Role

The Precast Detailing Role was created to include only the items needs to use Tekla Structures for Precast Detailing. This Role combines the contents of the environment folders with the contents of the us_roles\precast folders. The Role_Precast_Detailing.ini file located in the usimp (usmet) folder runs after the env_US_imperial.ini (env_US_metric.ini) file is run.

The following variables were modified in this role’s ini file:

- Modified
  • XS_DEFAULT_MODEL_TEMPLATE - this variable was updated to use the new name of this role's default model template (Precast Detailing).

4.2   Model Template

The Precast Detailing role’s model template has been renamed Precast Detailing, previously was named PC_BasicStructural. It has been updated to support the new Applications and Components catalog and include a default project thumbnail.

4.3   Modeling

Due to the default class color changes, the following concrete attributes have been updated.

Attribute name Part Type Class Changes
 Precast_Corner_Column  Concrete Column  now class 8 - was class 13
 Precast_Exterior_Column  Concrete Column  now class 8 - was class 13
 Precast_Interior_Column  Concrete Column  now class 8 - was class 13
 standard  Concrete Column  now class 8 - was class 13

In addition, the default Object Representationrepresentation of a model object or an object group in a model view, such a representation being based on the color and transparency settings applied to the model object or the object group

(standard.rep) used in this role has been updated to show any concrete object (who's part prefix contains a "W" and Assembly Type is Precast or Cast in Place) as Dark Gray. This will help distinquish between different concrete objects like footings vs walls.

4.4   User-defined Attributes

The Project Properties changes mentioned in the Steel Detailing section above are accessible in the Precast Detailing role. However drawings created with the Precast Detailing role, using the provided drawing settings, are not affected by these switches. This is because they use their own layout named Precast (or in some cases CastInPlace) which is not using the templates controlled by the Project Properties User-defined attribute switches. You would need to change the drawing layout to GA_Drawings in order to have those switches affect the drawing created in the Precast Detailing role.

The location of Drawing Styles and Switches in Precast Detailing role is found on one tab and in these roles the switches do not contain any previews/images.

4.5   Reports

Four NEW reports have been added for use in the Precast Detailing role.

  • 314   Rebar Bending List With Single Bars
  • 314   Rebar Bending List
  • 351   Surfacing type list
  • 351   Surfacing type list by Cast Units

4.6   Drawings

All drawing attributes have been updated to be compatible with v2016. Three Cast Unit drawingdrawing that displays information on concrete parts, including reinforcement, cast-in embeds, edge chamfers, and insulation, in a cast unit

Cast unit drawings are generally used either at the element factory or at the construction site.

attributes have been removed.

  • Beam
  • DoubleTee_Form
  • Stair

5   Cast In Place / Rebar Detailing     

5.1   Cast In Place (or Rebar Detailing) Role

The Cast In Place (and Rebar Detailing) Role was created to include only the items needs to use Tekla Structures for Cast In Place / Rebar Detailing projects. This Role combines the contents of the environment folders with the contents of the us_roles\castinplace folders. The Role_Cast_In_Place.ini (or Role_Rebar_Detailing.ini) file located in the usimp (usmet) folder runs after the env_US_imperial.ini (env_US_metric.ini) file is run.

The following variables were modified in this role’s ini file:

- Modified
  • XS_DEFAULT_MODEL_TEMPLATE - this variable was updated to use the new name of this role's default model template (CIPcast unit type where the concrete is formed, poured, and cured in its final position

    -Rebar Detailing
    ).

5.2   Model Template

The Cast In Place (and Rebar Detailing) role’s model template has been renamed CIP-Rebar Detailing, previously was named CIP_BasicStructural. It has been updated to support the new Applications and Components catalog and include a default project thumbnail.

5.3   Modeling

Due to the default class color changes, the following concrete attributes have been updated.

Attribute name Part Type Class Changes
 Circular  Concrete Column  now class 1 - was class 8
 Cip_Pile_Cap  Pad Footing  now class 1 - was class 8
 standard  Concrete Panel  now class 1 - was class 8
 Cip_GradeBeam  Strip Footing  now class 1 - was class 8
 Cip_Slab_On_Grade  Concrete Slab  now class 11 - was class 14

 

In addition, the default Object Representationthe way that the information included in a model is represented visually

(standard.rep) used in this role has been updated to show any concrete object (who's part prefix contains a "W" and Assembly Type is Precast or Cast in Place) as Dark Gray. This will help distinquish between different concrete objects like footings vs walls.

5.4   User-defined Attributes

The Project Properties changes mentioned in the Steel Detailing section above are accessible in the Cast In Place and Rebar Detailing roles. However drawings created with the Cast In Place or Rebar Detailing role, using the provided drawing settings, are not affected by these switches. This is because they use their own layout named CastInPlace which is not using the templates controlled by the Project Properties User-defined attribute switches. You would need to change the drawing layout to GA_Drawings in order to have those switches affect the drawing created in the Cast In Place or Rebar Detailing role.

The location of Drawing Styles and Switches in Cast In Place and Rebar Detailing roles are found on one tab and in these roles the switches do not contain any previews/images.

5.5   Reports

Four NEW reports have been added for use in the Cast In Place / Rebar Detailing roles. The new rebar reports have been created to work with standard and tapered bar groups. If a bar group is tapered, the report lists the length of each bar in the group.

  • 314   Rebar Bending List With Single Bars
  • 314   Rebar Bending List
  • 351   Surfacing type list
  • 351   Surfacing type list by Cast Units

5.6   Drawings
