Custom component input files

Custom component input files

Each custom componentcomponent that the user creates and uses for creating model objects whose composition the user can modify as a group

has an input fileInput files are used for different purposes, for example, for defining the content and structure of a dialog box and for defining certain reinforcement-related settings.

Input files have the extension .inp, for example rebar_config.inp.

that defines the contents of the custom component's dialog box.

When you create a new custom component, Tekla Structures automatically creates an input file for the component. The input file is located in the CustomComponentDialogFiles folder under 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.

. The input file has the same name as the custom component, and the file name extension is .inp.

When you modify a custom component , you will lose any changes you have made to the input file. However, when you modify the custom component, Tekla Structures automatically creates a backup copy of the input file. The backup copy has the file name extension .inp_bak , and it is located in the CustomComponentDialogFiles folder under the model folder. Tekla Structures displays a notification when the backup file is created.
