Ayrshire Side Rail Supports (90)

The Ayrshire Side Rail Supports 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.

can be used to define an arrangement of side rail supports between the rails of a bay.

Before and after

  • Any modification of the selected parts will cause this macro to be updated.
  • Most of the data required for this macro is fixed by Ayrshire and stored in a series of data files supplied with Tekla Structures. Where standard data is not applicable, then certain items can be modified through the Parameters tab of the properties panel, but it is also possible to tailor the data files to individual requirements. This would require assistance from Tekla Structures support.
  • Where this standard macro will not define all the supports required, it may be necessary to use the Non-Standard Side Rail macro. It is possible to combine the two in one bay by selecting smaller groups for which the standard macro is suitable, and then use the non-standard macro to define additional supports individually where required. 
  • All rails in the bay must have the same section depth.
  • All rail lengths must be parallel.
  • The outside of the rails / eaves beams must align.
  • Cannot insert tie to eaves beam.
