Indicate cut lines in Tekla Structures drawings

Cut lines are lines that indicate with zigzag or dash-and-dot lines in different colors that a part is partially outside the view border.

Create cut lines

You can create cut lines to visualize the lines that are partially outside the view frame. You can create cut lines automatically for all parts in the view, or for selected parts.

Limitations:

  • Cut lines cannot be created for polybeams.

  • View extension for neighbor parts setting is not taken into account.

  1. On the Drawing tab, clickCreate cut lines.
  2. Do any of the following:
    • Select the type (zigzag or dash-and-dot) for the line from the list of types.
    • Select the color for the line from the color list.
    • Enter a scale for the line in the box next to the list of types.
  3. Do one of the following:

    • To create cut lines for all parts in the view, select the view.
    • To create cut lines for selected parts, select the parts.
  4. Click Create.
