Table layouts

A table layoutplan that defines the selection, placing, and scale of tables in a drawing

is a group of tables or templates included in a drawing of a certain type and size.

The layout defines:

  • Which tables are included in the drawing

  • Where the tables are located in the drawing

  • How much space Tekla Structures leaves between the drawing frame and views and between the drawing views

Table layouts define the background of the drawing, not the number or location of the drawing views to include.

You can use the same table layout with different drawing sizes, or give each drawing size its own table layout. For example, if the number of views changes in a drawing and Tekla Structures chooses a new drawing size, Tekla Structures may also choose another table layout automatically.

The examples below illustrate the relationship between the table layout and drawing views. The drawing views are blue, and the elements of the table layout are green.

Below is an example of a GA 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.

  1. Margins between the drawing frame and the outermost views
  2. Spaces between the views
  3. Top viewdefault view that is created using the part’s or component’s coordinate system and that shows the part or component from the top direction

    Part’s top view is a view on part plane created of the part’s top plane.

  4. Front viewdefault view that is created using the part’s or component’s coordinate system and that shows the part or component from the front direction

    Part’s front view is a view on part plane created of the part’s front plane.

  5. Section views A-A and B-B
  6. Drawing frame
  7. Key plansmall-scale view in a drawing that indicates the location of an assembly, a cast unit, or a part in the model

    A key plan contains the model grid and the assembly, cast unit, or part shown in the included drawing view.
