File Locations

Use to define the default location of the cache file that is created from the source file when you load a reference modelmodel which the designer can use as an aid when building another model

A reference model is created in Tekla Structures or in other software and can be inserted to Tekla Structures. The reference model appears together with the model but it is not modified by Tekla Structures. The user can snap to reference model points.

For example, an architectural model, a plant design model, or a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) model can be a reference model.

for the first time. The advanced option is set to C:\TeklaStructuresModels\\RefCacheFolders by default. You can also replace the path with XS_RUNPATH as follows: %XS_RUNPATH%\RefCacheFolders.

  • You may sometimes want to change the default location of the cache file when you are working with multi-user models to reduce network traffic and disk usage in the server or to speed up the cache operation (if the local drive is faster than the server drive).

  • When you are using different versions of Tekla Structures for different projects and you experience problems with reference models, empty the folder where the reference cache is created. The cache file is recreated the next time you open the reference model.

This advanced option is user specific and the setting is saved in options.bin under user folder. Restart Tekla Structures to activate the new value.
