Rule sets in Master Drawing Catalog
Rule sets are sets of rules on how to create drawings for different object types. A rule setmaster drawing that contains model selection filters and where the properties and drawing settings vary based on the selected model objects
is a combination of object groups (model selection filters) and master drawingcollection of properties and drawing settings that are used for creating a new drawing
settings (cloning templates, saved settingsmaster drawing where the drawing settings are saved in a drawing property file and used when creating a new drawing of a specific drawing type
) that define which objects to include in the drawing, and which drawing settingssettings that control what the drawing looks like and what it includes
Drawing settings can be defined in the modeling mode when creating a drawing, and they can be modified in the drawing mode.
The range of the objects and elements that drawing settings affect may vary.
to use. You can use the existing AutoDrawings wizard files or create your own rule sets.
The order of sets is important, as Tekla Structures by default creates only one drawing for each object. For example, a rule set creates an assembly drawingdrawing that shows fabrication information for a basic or a nested assembly, including bolts and welds, and that is generally used at the workshop
Assembly drawings show how parts are located in an assembly. They contain the parts of the assembly presented in one or more views.

Selection filters can be standard or user-defined.
For example, selection filters can be used to select parts for drawings or analysis.
criteria in one set. Tekla Structures will not create another assembly drawing for that object, even if it matches the criteria of the selection filter in later sets in the same rule set file.
