Example: Clone a general arrangement drawing
In this example, we first created a general arrangement drawingdrawing that is created from one or more model views and that shows information needed to understand the general arrangement of structural elements on a project
General arrangement drawings show how parts, assemblies, cast units, or pour objects are located in a building.
of the +3200 plan in a building, then edited the drawing and then cloned the general arrangement drawing of the +6300 plan.
The first floor and second floor are quite similar:
We edited the general arrangement drawing of the +3200 plan view slightly, for example, deleted some marks.
We selected the model viewview that is represented in the modeling mode
Model view is available also in the drawing mode and it is represented in its own window.
that represents the +6300 plan and then cloned the drawing using the general arrangement drawing of the +3200 plan as a template.
In the cloned drawing:
The drawing viewview that includes selected model objects or an area in the model, that is represented in a drawing
A drawing view is a container for model and drawing objects.
A drawing can include several drawing views, which usually are two-dimensional views, plane views, to the model.
Examples of drawing views in Tekla Structures include main views, section views, single-part views, and 3D views.
plane has been moved to match the model view +6300 plan.
If there are parts in matching places, the marks have been cloned to the new location and the content has been updated.
Dimensions are cloned.
All building objectobject that represents something that will exist in the real building or be closely related to it
A building object is always created in a model, but it is also represented as a drawing object in a drawing in which its properties can be modified.
