Sandwich Wall Vertical Seam

Sandwich Wall Vertical Seam

Sandwich Wall Vertical Seam creates a vertical seam between two sandwich walls. Seam dimensions and rabbets can be defined for all layers: inner shell, foil, insulation, and outer shell.

Objects created

  • Seam

  • Rabbets

  • Foil

  • Insulation

Use for

Situation

Description

Seams between sandwich wall shells.

Seams with additional rabbets.

Limitations

The component works only if the sandwich walls are parallel.

Before you start

To be able to select the needed parts, activate the Select objects in components switch.

Selection order

  1. Select the inner shell of the first sandwich wallplate that represents a structure such as a wall or roof panel

    In Tekla Structures, a panel is created by picking two or more points.

    In cast-in-place concrete the term wall refers to a concept similar to panel.

    .

  2. Select the inner shell of the second sandwich wall.

    The seam is created automatically when the secondary part(1) part that exists in a building object and that is connected to the main part

    (1) Secondary part can be an assembly secondary part or a cast unit secondary part.

    (2) input part that the user selects after selecting the component main part when creating a component

    (2) A component can have none, one or more component secondary parts.

    is selected.

Picture tab

Use the Picture tab to control the vertical seam properties.

Seam position

Seams can be defined for inner shells, insulation and outer shells. Draft angles can be defined for the outer shells.

Define the seam position between the sandwich wall shells. The middle line between the walls is used as a reference when the seam position is calculated.

Example:

Shell classes

Define the part classes to be applied to the seams. By default, the Sandwich Wall Vertical Seam component creates inner shells with classpart property that groups parts according to identifiers given by the user

The identifiers of classes are usually numbers. Classes can be used for defining the color of parts in the model, for example. Class does not influence the numbering of model objects.

1, foil with class 2, insulation with class 3 and outer shells with class 4. Use these classes to apply seams.

For example, to prevent the creation of seams between foils, insulation shells and outer shells, leave the Insulation classes box empty.

Asymmetrical seams

You can create asymmetrical seams and/or rabbets in the insulation layer.

Option

Description

Symmetrical seams.

No rabbet for the insulation layer.

Symmetrical seams.

Rabbet depth can be defined for the insulation layer.

Asymmetrical seams for the insulation layer and outer shell.

No rabbet for the insulation layer.

Asymmetrical seams for the insulation layer and outer shell.

Rabbet depth can be defined for the insulation layer.

Offset / Mirror

You can define offset for the seam.

Rabbets tab

Use the Rabbets tab to define rabbets in inner shells, insulation layers and outer shells.

Rabbet side

Select to which side of the sandwich wall the rabbets are applied.

  • Right side

    Rabbets are equal on both sides, but the rabbet dimensions on the right side are applied to both sides.

  • Left side

    Rabbets are equal on both sides, but the rabbet dimensions on the left side are applied to both sides.

  • Both sides

    Rabbet dimensions can be defined separately for both sides.

  • Both sides mirrored

    Rabbet dimensions can be defined separately for both sides, but sides are mirrored.

Rabbet position

Typically the vertical seams go from the top to the bottom of the sandwich wall. Define the seam offsets for the top and bottom sides. Offsets are applied only to the inner and outer shells.
