Example: Number identical beams
This example explains how different 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.
settings result in different part numbers when you modify a part.
To number identical beams:
- Create three identical beams with the numbering seriesset of identifiers defined by the user, based on which Tekla Structures compares parts, assemblies, cast units, or reinforcement with each other during the numbering and gives position numbers
Numbering series is defined by a prefix and a start number.
The user can, for example, allocate separate numbering series to different phases or part types.
prefix P and start numberfirst number of a numbering series
- Number the model. All the beams have the part position numberposition number that is assigned to a part
- Modify one of the beams.
- Number the model. You should now have two beams P1 and one P2.
- Change beam P2 to be identical to the others.
- Number the model.
Depending on the numbering settings in the Numbering Setup dialog box, Tekla Structures assigns one of the following part positionposition number that is assigned to a part
numbers to the modified part:
Compare to old : P1
Keep number if possible : P2
Take new number : P3
