Create grids and grid lines

Create grids and grid lines

A 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.

represents a three-dimensional complex of horizontal and vertical planes. The grid is shown on the view planeplane in a space that defines the view

In Tekla Structures, the grids are projected onto the view plane and the grid lines can be visible on it.

View depth is defined starting from the view plane.

using dash-and-dot lines. Use grids as an aid in locating objects in a model. You can make grids and grid lines act magnetically so that the objects on the grid lines follow if you move the grid linesingle line that visualizes a single grid plane on a view plane

Grid terminology

(1) Grid origin is the point where the zero points of each coordinate axis intersect

(2) Grid line extensions define how far the grid lines extend in each direction

(3) Grid labels are the names of the grid lines shown in views

Modular grid

You can have more than one grid in a model. We strongly advise that you create a modular grid, so that you can easily place objects in your model. For example:

Single grid lines

You can create single grid lines and attach them to an existing grid.

Single grid lines have handles. If theSelect grid line selection switch is active and you select a grid line, the handles appear in magenta. If you move the handles to make a skewed grid, you can do this only on the local XY plane of the grid.
