Use the Sequencer tool to name sequences and assign incremental numbers to parts.

You can define several sequences for different purposes, and a part can belong to several sequences at the same time. For example, you can define the order in which to erect parts by creating erection sequences.

Sequencer works by assigning a sequence numberincremental number of an individual part that belongs to a sequence of parts

to a user-defined attributeobject property created by the user in order to widen the range of predefined object properties

User-defined attributes are used when the predefined object properties are not sufficient but more properties are needed. For example, comment, locked, and erection status are user-defined attributes.

Sequencer is used for defining erection sequences, for example.

does not work for objects that are inside 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.
