Each environment has its own folder, where the files related to different catalogs are stored. For example, ..\environments\uk\general\profil\ contains the files for managing cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.

files used in the United Kingdom. The exact file location may vary depending on the folder structure of your environment files.

The following table lists files and file types related to catalogs.

File type File name Used for Located in

.inp

profitab.inp

Defines the names that you can use for parametric profiles.

In the \profil folder, under the environment folders, in ..\ProgramData\Tekla Structures\<version>\environments\<environment>\

rebar_database.inp

Contains details of the reinforcement used in concrete structures. Includes both the standard bending radii and the standard hook dimensions.
