Set up the workspace

Set up the workspace

Before starting to model, check that your Tekla Structures workspace is set up correctly.

  1. Define the units and decimals you will use.
  2. Modify the grid to suit your needs. Create a modular gridmodeling aid that represents a three-dimensional complex of horizontal and vertical planes

    In Tekla Structures, grids are used as an aid in locating objects in a model. The grid is shown on the view plane by dash-and-dot lines. It is also possible to show grids and grid line labels in drawings, and to modify grid properties in the drawings.

    It is possible to have more than one grid in a model. For example, a large-scale grid for the entire structure, and smaller grids for some detailed sections.

    if needed.
  3. Create some views to examine the model from different angles and elevations.
  4. Resize the work area to suit your project.
  5. Get familiar with the coordinate system. If you are modeling sloped structures, shift the work plane accordingly.
