Use this advanced option to define whether duplicate bolt holes in the same location, or within a tolerance , in a part are ignored in part numberingprocess of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.


The default value is FALSE.

If this advanced option is set to TRUE , the duplicate bolt holes are ignored in part numbering.

You can use this advanced option when only some and possibly a different set of the holes in otherwise identical parts will be used for bolting on site. In this way identical parts can be used in different conditions in the structure.

The size of the duplicate holes is not taken into consideration, only the location, so holes of different size are considered duplicates if they are in the same location.


It is not recommended to change this advanced option during a project, but if you do so, you must carry out full numbering.

This advanced option is model specific and the setting is saved in the options databasedatabase file that contains the settings of model-specific general settings and advanced options

There are two options databases, the model options database (options_model.db) and the drawing options database (options_drawings.db).
