Examples of input files used in attribute import

Example input file for parts

ASSEMBLY_POS and PHASE are the key fields. Tekla Structures adds several user-defined attributes to the assemblies with values that match those listed in the ASSEMBLY_POS and PHASE columns.

For example, an assembly with the ASSEMBLY_POS (assembly number) of B5 in phase 1 gets the following user-defined attributes:

STATUS : 3

USER_PHASE : 6

USER_ISSUE : 3/25/2012

The 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.

contains several entries for B1. In this case, Tekla Structures writes the message Duplicate entry in input file in the log file and does not overwrite the user-defined attributes that are listed earlier in the file with those that are listed later. For example, at the end of the attribute importimport of user-defined attribute values to a model from a text file

, B1 will have the following user-defined attributes:

STATUS : 7

USER_PHASE : 3

USER_ISSUE : 3/25/2012

This input file is tab-delimited. You can also use a comma, semi-colon, space or a user-defined delimiter.

Example input file for drawings

TYPE and NAME are the key fields. Tekla Structures adds a value for the 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.

User field 4 to drawings with values that match those listed in the TYPE and NAME columns.

For example, a drawing with the TYPE A (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.

) and NAME B.2 gets the value 4 in the User field 4.
