Create a connection using AutoConnection

Create a connection using AutoConnection

Use AutoConnectiontool that creates connections with predefined properties in certain framing conditions

to have Tekla Structures automatically create connections using the properties of predefined rules. When you use AutoConnection, Tekla Structures ignores the properties in the connection dialog boxes. Tekla Structures does not modify the existing connections.

  1. In the model, select the parts to connect.
  2. On the Edit tab, click Components > Create AutoConnections.
  3. Select the rule groups from the lists on the Rule groups tab.

    1 Rule group for AutoConnection
    2 Rule group for AutoDefaults
  4. If needed, go to the Advanced tab to change the rules used in framing conditions:
    1. Select the connection in the Connection selection option:
      • AutoConnection applies the connection defined in the rule group that you have selected in the first list on the Rule groups tab.
      • None does not create a connection.
      • Click Select to select a connection from the Applications & components cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

        For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.

        . Tekla Structures creates the connection using the default properties.
    2. Select the connection properties in the Parameters selection option:
      • AutoDefaults applies the properties of the rule group that you have selected in the first list on the Rule groups tab.
      • No autodefaults applies the default connection properties.
  5. Click Create connections.
