You can inquire the contents of a reference modelmodel which the designer can use as an aid when building another model
A reference model is created in Tekla Structures or in other software and can be inserted to Tekla Structures. The reference model appears together with the model but it is not modified by Tekla Structures. The user can snap to reference model points.
For example, an architectural model, a plant design model, or a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) model can be a reference model.
. This is something you might want to do after importing a reference model into Tekla Structures.
On the ribbon, click Inquire object.
In your Tekla Structures model, click the reference model you want to examine.
The contents of the reference model are listed in the Inquire Object dialog box.
