Use the Clash check manager tool to find parts, bolts, reinforcement, or reference modelmodel which the designer can use as an aid when building another model

A reference model is created in Tekla Structures or in other software and can be inserted to Tekla Structures. The reference model appears together with the model but it is not modified by Tekla Structures. The user can snap to reference model points.

For example, an architectural model, a plant design model, or a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) model can be a reference model.

objects that collide. Clashes of objects that only touch one another are not included in the clash check results.

Use the clash check settings to define clearances between different model objects.

You can also use the sections and floors created in Organizer to run a controlled clash check.

If you want to use another Tekla Structures model as a reference model, you must export it in IFCfile format commonly used in BIM that facilitates software interoperability

IFC is an open specification developed by the IAI (International Alliance for Interoperability).

Model can be exported into an IFC file.

format to be able to use it in clash checking. The following reference model file types are supported in clash checking:

  • IFC

  • DWG

  • DGN
