Show parts in a selected view angle

In some cases it is useful to examine parts in a selected view angle. For example, when you reinforce concrete elements, you can easily check the distances between the reinforcing bars.

  1. Select a part.
  2. ClickView angle on the contextual toolbarfloating toolbar that contains commands for modifying the most common object properties

    The user can customize the contextual toolbar.

    The term mini toolbar is used in Tekla Structures until version 21.1.

  3. Select a top, back, right, bottom, front, or left view.

    Tekla Structures displays the part in the selected view angle. The view angle is based on the selected part's coordinate system so that the top viewdefault view that is created using the part’s or component’s coordinate system and that shows the part or component from the top direction

    Part’s top view is a view on part plane created of the part’s top plane.

    is looking to the negative z-direction. For example, if you select the top view, Tekla Structures sets the current view angle from up to down in the coordinate system.

  4. To return to the original 3D viewview that displays objects three-dimensionally

    3D view is one of the default views.

    , click the button in the middle of the view angle options.
Note: Tekla Structures shows the part in the current view, which is the view where your mouse has last been. If the contextual toolbar is located, for example, on top of two views, the part is shown in the view where your mouse has last been and not in the view where the part was selected.
