Get to know Tekla Structures basic working methods

Before starting to create models and drawings, get to know some basic working methods that you will need to work efficiently both in the Tekla Structures models and in the drawings.

We recommend you to familiarize yourself how to

  • work with grids and views
  • define the work area and coordinates that affect your work
  • zoom and rotate the model
  • create , select and move objects
  • position objects by using snapping
  • filter objects both in the modeling modemode that is used for creating and analyzing a model, and initiating the creation of a drawing and a report

    Custom component editor and sketch editor can be accessed in modeling mode.

    and in the drawing modemode that is used for editing the appearance and content of drawings

    Tekla Structures switches to the drawing mode when the user opens any drawing.
