Tekla Structures places the base pointpoint in a model that is used to define a starting point in surveying and that is used as an anchor point in coordinate and height transformations

A Tekla Structures project can have several base points but only one of them can be the project base point.

Base points allow the use of another coordinate system needed for interoperability and collaboration. Base points can also be used in drawings, and in reports and templates. Model origin is the default base point in Tekla Structures.

Base points are also called control points.

The steel bars are usually ribbed and they are used to increase the tensile strength of concrete.

. You can adjust how Tekla Structures searches for the place for the base point.

  • On the File menu , click Settings > Advanced options and go to the Concrete Detailing category.


Do this

Select an optimal place for the base point.


Define how far the other reinforcing bars must be from the base point in order for Tekla Structures to place the base point.


Define the search step length while searching for an optimal place for the base point along the reinforcing bar.

Set a millimeter value for XS_REBAR_MARK_LEADER_LINE​​​​​​_BASE​​​​​_POINT_SEARCH​​​​​​_​STEP_​LENGTH.
