Example: Number selected part types

This example shows 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 can be used for different part types. We will use one set of numbering settings for steel anchor rods, and another one for steel columns. Note that the Number series of selected objects command numbers all parts that have the same assembly prefix.

To number anchor rods and columns:

  1. Create steel columns.
  2. Create anchor rods 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 AR and start numberfirst number of a numbering series


    Ensure that this numbering series is different to any other parts or assemblies in the model.

  3. Apply
  4. Ensure that the Column orientation check box is not selected, and then click Apply.

  5. Select one of the anchor rods in the model.
  6. On the Drawings & reports tab, click Perform numbering > Number series of selected objects.

    All parts with the AR prefix and start number at 1 are numbered.

  7. Wait until the anchor rod numbering is complete.
  8. On the Drawings & reports tab, click Numbering settings > Numbering settings to open the Numbering Setup dialog box.
  9. Select the Column orientation check box, and then click Apply.
  10. Select one of the steel columns in the model.
  11. On the Drawings & reports tab, click Perform numbering > Number series of selected objects.

    All columns belonging to the same numbering series as the selected column are numbered.
