Example: Use family numbers

Example: Use family numbers

In this example, the following four beams have 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 B and the start numberfirst number of a numbering series

1. The parts have the same main profile, and each pair has the same length, but the holes are different.

Assembly position: B/1

Assembly position: B/2

Assembly position: B/3

Assembly position: B/4

We use the following family numberingprocess of assigning family-based numbers to cast units or assemblies

settings:

  • Use family numbering for series : add series B/1

  • Compare : select options Main part profile and Overall length

With the given family 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.

criteria, Tekla Structures divides the beams into two families. All beams have the same profile, but each pair has a different length. Within both families the beams get different qualifiers because they have different holes.

  • The first beam gets the assembly position numberposition number that is assigned to an assembly or a cast unit

    B/1-1

  • The second beam gets the assembly position numberidentifier that is assigned to all similar parts, assemblies, cast units, or reinforcement

    Position number consists of a prefix, separator, and running number. The prefix is part of the position number, identifying a numbering series. The running number is part of the position number, and is the assigned number in the numbering series, based on the start number. The separator is an optional character, such as a slash, that separates the prefix and the running number.

    In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

    In the US, the term piece mark or ship mark is used to refer to a position number.

    B/1-2

  • The third beam gets the assembly position number B/2-1

  • The fourth beam gets the assembly position number B/2-2
