Tekla Structures 2019 Finland environment Release Notes

1. General Settings

1.1 Environment installation and new file path

Environment installer is downloaded same way as on previous versions but it now contains .tsep installers. Whole environment is packed into smaller role packages that contain smaller file sets. When setting up the installing, user can decide whether the environment .tsep packages are installed immediately or at the first startup of Tekla Structures.

The old file path for environment (C:\ProgramData\Tekla Structures\2018i\Environments\Finland) is now changed to C:\ProgramData\Trimble\Tekla Structures\2019.0\Environments\Finland. New 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.

practice (2019.0 and 2019.1 vs. 2018 and 2018i) is set to all version folders.

1.2 New environment folder structure

Environment folder has new sub-folder system and the folders are named according to the roles. The file paths to each role-specific folder are defined in env_Finland.ini as XS_GENERAL, XS_CONTRACTOR, XS_ENGINEERING, XS_PRECAST, XS_PRECASTFI, XS_PRECASTEN, XS_STEEL, XS_STEELFI and XS_STEELEN. A subset of the folders are then set according to the selected role's role.ini file as XS_SYSTEM directory. More information Finland .ini files release notes.

1.3 Custom properties

Custom propertyobject property that the user can manually include in Organizer

Some properties are not automatically available in the Organizer, for example the properties of reference model objects.

.dll files were removed from Finland environment folder since they are currently saved in \Environments\common\extensions\custom\properties\ when Finland environment is installed.

1.4 Applications & Components catalog and Start Model Concrete update

Applications & Components cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.

and the model templatemodel which is used as a basis for creating new models

The user can save a model including all its elements, such as object properties, certain settings, parts, and components, in a model template.

Start Model Concrete were updated for version 2019.

Some custom components of Start Model Concrete didn't respond to changing of values in component dialog. The components were fixed in Service Pack 2, so models started with SP2 or later, using Start Models Concrete, have "healthy" custom components. Unfortunately the fix can't repair models started with Final or SP1-version, but you can export and import the fixed components from a new model.

1.5 Modeling


Selection filters Materiaali - Betoni, Materiaali - Betonielementit, Materiaali, Paikallavalu betoni, Materiaali - Puu and Materiaali - Teräs had gone missing from Finland environment. These filters are used in e.g. the example settings for DWG/DXF export "FIN-RAK-asetukset". The filters will be included again in Service Pack 4.

1.6 Templates & Reports


Previously the fire classpart property that groups parts according to identifiers given by the user

The identifiers of classes are usually numbers. Classes can be used for defining the color of parts in the model, for example. Class does not influence the numbering of model objects.

of an assembly wasn't displayed on any default templates of assembly drawings. The UDAobject property created by the user in order to widen the range of predefined object properties

User-defined attributes are used when the predefined object properties are not sufficient but more properties are needed. For example, comment, locked, and erection status are user-defined attributes.

could be set to the part, assembly or drawing, but it wouldn't be visible from either of the locations. Fire class was added to A_Fabrication.tpl on Service Pack 2.

1.7 Drawings

BEC2012 Kloonimalli master drawings stopped working on TS2019, but a fix for the issue was released on Service Pack 2.

Example settings "FIN-RAK-asetukset" for drawing DWG/DXF export were missing from TS2019, but they will be returned on Service Pack 4.

2. Concrete

2.1 Concrete component updates

Updates to the following concrete components:

  • Columns - automated reinforcement layout (57): updated attribute file standard.m140000057
  • Beam reinforcement (63): updated attribute file standard.m30000063
  • Strip footingfooting that supports several points of contact or a region of points of contact

    Strip footing supports a length of wall or a line of closely spaced columns, for example.

    In Tekla Structures, strip footing has a polygon shape that the user defines by picking points.

    reinforcement (75): updated attribute file standard.m30000075
  • Round column reinforcement (82): updated attribute file standard.m30000082
  • Rectaqngular column reinforcement (83): updated attribute file standard.m30000083
  • Holesmall hollow open throughout a part or assembly that is usually used for fastening parts with bolts or other such objects

    Hole is created in the same way as bolts and hole properties are defined in the bolt properties.

    reinforcement for slabs and walls (84): updated attribute file standard.m30000084
  • Starter bars for footing (87) updated attribute file standard.30000087
  • Reinforcement meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

    In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

    array in area (89): updated attribute file standard.m30000089
  • Meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

    In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

    Bars: updated attribute file standard.MeshBars.MeshbarsForm.xml
  • Sandwich and Double Wallplate that represents a structure such as a wall or roof panel

    In Tekla Structures, a panel is created by picking two or more points.

    In cast-in-place concrete the term wall refers to a concept similar to panel.

    : updated attribute files standard_Bearing.p_SandwichAndDoubleWall and standard_Non_bearing.p_SandwichAndDoubleWall
  • Rebar Groupgroup of reinforcing bars that are side by side and have identical properties, except the possible variation in bar lengths

    Dimensioning: updated attribute file standard.RebarGroupDimensionPlugin.RebarGroupDimensionPluginForm.xml
  • RebarGroupMarking: updated attribute file standard.RebarGroupMarking.RebarGroupMarkingForm.xml
