Combine parts

You can combine two parts into one. This can be useful when you want to model complex parts (such as folded plates) that are otherwise difficult to model, or when you want to model prefabricated parts that are delivered to the workshop already attached to profiles.

  1. On the Edit tab, click Combine.
  2. Select the first part.

    The properties of the first selected part will be used for the combined part.

  3. Select the second part.

    The parts are combined into one.

    If the center lines of the parts are not in line with each other, Tekla Structures combines them by taking the largest distance between the start and end points from both parts. For example:


  • Combining does not work for contour plates, polybeams or slabs.

  • When you combine parts, Tekla Structures retains the attached objects and connections. Tekla Structures does not recreate connections in the part that was selected first.
