Tekla Structures is a building information modelingprocess of modeling and communicating the structure of a building in detail to benefit the entire construction life cycle

BIM facilitates the exchange and use of building information in a digital format.

) software for structural engineers, detailers, fabricators, and contractors. With Tekla Structures , you can create information-rich 3D models of all structures and materials, such as steel, precast and cast-in-place concretecast unit type where the concrete is formed, poured, and cured in its final position

, and timber.

To get started (follow the links in the text for detailed instructions):

Using Tekla Structures you can

  • create detailed and accurate constructible 3D models
  • create structures regardless of material, size or complexity
  • estimate, plan and manage your projects
  • provide open, readable data for manufacturing and for exporting to other solutions
  • collaborate with different project parties and integrate with other solutions
  • share you models and enable multiple users working on the same project
  • produce drawings and reports from the 3D model. Drawings and reports react to modifications in the model, and they are always up-to-date.
  • enhance communication and coordination using the model from design and detailing to the construction site

Additionally, you can extend Tekla Structures with Tekla Warehouse that is a free, global BIM storage of Tekla Structures add-ons, libraries and templates. If needed, you can further customize Tekla Structures to better suit your needs with Tekla Open API , the application interface.

Tekla Structures is a global software solution that has different configurations to match the different needs worldwide, and that is available in a wide range of languages, and adapted to local requirements with the help of localized environments.
