Open a model

Open a model

You can have one model open at a time. If you open a model and already have one open, Tekla Structures prompts you to save the first model.

  1. On the File menu, click Open.
  2. Select the model you want to open.
    • To search for models in another folder, click Browse.
    • To open a recently used 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.

      , click the Open model from folder list.
    • To sort models by name, date, or type, click the column titles.
    • When the models are sorted alphabetically by their names, you can use the keyboard to select a model. For example, when you type N, Tekla Structures selects the first model starting with an N.
  3. Click Open.

    If no views are visible in the model, Tekla Structures prompts you to select one.
