Create parts, reinforcement, and construction objects

When you know the basic principles of how to create and modify different types of model objects in Tekla Structures , you can start working on more detailed level with your model.

First, to get your model started, you need to create some parts. Parts are the building blocks of the physical modelstructural model with a direct or indirect counterpart in the structure to be built

. You can continue working with the parts by, for example, deforming their shape , or by adding some details to the parts , such as bolts, welds, or cuts or fittings.

When you use a workshop weld or bolt to join parts together, you will learn how to work with assemblies of steel parts.

For concrete parts, each concrete part is considered a separate cast unit. For construction purposes, you may need to merge several concrete parts into one cast unit. If you model cast-in-place concretecast unit type where the concrete is formed, poured, and cured in its final position

structures, you may need to check how to work with pours. And once you have created a model of concrete parts, you will need to reinforce the parts to gain higher strength for the parts.

Additionally, you may need to use points or construction objects as modeling aids. Points and construction objects help you to place other objects in the model.
