, so the information is always accurate. Reports can contain information about selected parts or the entire model.
Tekla Structures includes a large number of standard report templates. Use Template Editortool in Tekla Structures that is used for creating and modifying templates to be used in drawings and reports
to modify the existing report templates, or create new ones to suit your needs.
Note that the reports do not get updated automatically when the model changes, you need to recreate the reports.
The report templates are by default located in folder ..\ProgramData\Tekla Structures\<version>\environments\<environment>\system and in ..\ProgramData\Tekla Structures\<version>\environments\<environment>\system\steel. Report templates have the file name extension .rpt.
