Drawing Properties

Set to TRUE to have Tekla Structures clone(performed by Tekla Structures) to create a new drawing by using a cloning template

Cloning aims at using the drawing properties, view properties, and object properties from the cloning template in a new drawing.

Drawings can be cloned from the current model or another model.

Cloned drawings need some manual checking.

a drawing even though all the parts of the original drawing have been deleted and the position numberidentifier that is assigned to all similar parts, assemblies, cast units, or reinforcement

Position number consists of a prefix, separator, and running number. The prefix is part of the position number, identifying a numbering series. The running number is part of the position number, and is the assigned number in the numbering series, based on the start number. The separator is an optional character, such as a slash, that separates the prefix and the running number.

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

In the US, the term piece mark or ship mark is used to refer to a position number.

is the same as in the original drawing. The default is FALSE.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).



You have drawing A[A.1] in your drawing listlist of drawings that provides information about the drawings in a particular model and that is used for searching, managing, and printing the drawings

In the drawing list, the user can, for example, search, open, update, freeze, lock, and delete drawings. The drawing list can also be used to display the associations between the drawings and the parts in the model.

Drawing list is used in Tekla Structures until version 2018. See document manager.

. You number the model so that the assembly A.1 changes to A.2. In the drawing list, the A[A.1] drawing is marked with an x and with the status message "All parts deleted." Then you number the model again, so that the assembly in the model changes from A.2 back to A.1. To clone, set the advanced option XS_DRAWING_CLONING_IGNORE_CHECK to TRUE , select the A[A.1] drawing (marked with x) from the drawing list and assembly A.1 from the model, and click Clone.
