Parts in Tekla Structures

In Tekla Structures , the term part refers to the basic building objects that can be modeled and detailed further. These are the building blocks of the physical modelstructural model with a direct or indirect counterpart in the structure to be built


Every part has properties that define it, such as material , profile , and location. You can use part properties in view and selection filters. For example, you can select, modify, and hide parts based on their properties. You can also include part properties and user-defined attributes in drawing and report templates.

A special type of parts are items. Use them to model objects that would be difficult to model using basic Tekla Structures parts and commands, such as cutting.
