Copy and remove filters

You can copy custom filters to another model by manually copying filter files to the attributes folder under the desired model folderfolder that is used for storing files associated with a model

Tekla Structures stores all files associated with a model in a folder it creates with the same name as the model database (.db1).

In multi-user mode all users access the same model folder.

. You can also manually remove unneeded filters from the same folder. If you want to make a filter available in all models, copy the file to your company's project or firm folderfolder that is used for storing Tekla Structures-related files customized for a particular organization

A Tekla Structures user can, for example, customize a company’s cloning templates and save them in a sub-folder located under the firm folder. After this, the customized cloning templates can be used in all projects carried out for the company.
