Define what affects numbering

Define what affects numbering

To define which properties affect 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.

in your model, modify the settings in the Numbering Setup dialog box.

You can have Tekla Structures compare the following properties:

  • Holes (if created with the Bolt command)

  • Part name

  • Beam orientation

  • Column orientation

  • Assembly name

  • Assembly phase ( XS_​ENABLE_​PHASE_​OPTION_​IN_​NUMBERING set to TRUE )

  • Reinforcement

  • Embedded objects (affect only cast units)

  • Surface treatmentbuilding object that represents finishing of a part

    The term surface treatment is used in concrete detailing. For concrete parts surface treatment includes surface mixes, tiles, and flat finishes, such as troweling and sandblasting.

    The term surface finish is used in steel detailing. For steel parts surface finishes include fire-proofing and unpainted areas.

    (affects only assemblies)

  • Welds (affect only assemblies)

If these properties differ, Tekla Structures treats objects as different, and therefore numbers them differently.

For example, if two otherwise identical parts have different names and you select the Part name check box, Tekla Structures gives the parts different numbers.

By default, a part retains its number, as long as only one part has that particular number, regardless of the settings in the Numbering Setup dialog box.
