Tips for numbering

  • It is a good idea to have some kind of a routine in 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.

    . For example, number the model when you start your working day or when you finish for the day.

  • To save time, include 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.

    in the default part properties for each type of part before you start modeling.

  • Numbering is not just another way of classifying parts. To classify, use Organizer , user-defined attributes, or colors.

  • If you have overlapping position numbers, Tekla Structures will warn you about it.

    You can have a closer look at the overlapping position numbers in the numbering history log. To display the log, click File menu > Logs > Numbering history log.
