Standard files

Standard files are property files that Tekla Structures uses by default.

These properties are displayed in the dialog boxes of different objects such as beams, columns or plates, when you select the standard option in the list next to the Load button, and click the Load button.

Standard files are stored in the ..\TeklaStructuresModels\<model_name>\attributes folder. They are named standard.* where the symbol * is the file name extension. For example, standard.clm file is used for column properties.

List of standard files saved with Save defaults command

You can save a set of standard files in the 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.

. You can then copy the standard files to the project or firm folders for future use, to set up Tekla Structures to suit the way you work.

To save a set of standard files in the model folder, go to Quick Launch , start typing save defaults and select the Save Defaults command from the list. Tekla Structures saves a set of standard files in the attributes folder in the current modelmodel that is active in Tekla Structures

The current model can be a single-user model, a shared model or a working model.
