1.2 Folder Structure

  • New sheet piling bmp files under .\bitmaps\ folder.  These new files give a preview in the profile catalogcatalog that displays profiles and information on the profiles

    In addition to the available profiles in the respective Tekla Structures environment, the user can add fixed or parametric user-defined profiles to the profile catalog. It is also possible to import profiles to the profile catalog.

  • New DETAN COUPLER bmp files under .\bitmaps\ folder.  These new files are available for the new tensioner component 

  • New components_sketches subfolder under .\Steel\ folder. contains Manchons_DETAN.uel
  • Installation macros Combine Polybeampart of a certain shape that is created as a continuous chain of beams passing through points that the user picks

    The segments of the polybeam are straight, but segment intersections can be curved. For example, a beam that follows a zigzag line is a polybeam.

    & ShrinkTool move from common\Macros to common\extensions and have their dedicate folder
  • New FP_xxx bitmaps (.\General\symbols) available for A_liste accessoires pliages enveloppe.pdf report
  • New logo_société2.png (.\General\symbols) avazilable into Carnet de détail layout
  • Custom variables have been separated in 2 files, the original one from the USCustomVariables.dll and a FRCustomVariables.dll containing only the one developed by Trimble Solutions France .

1.3 Catalogs

1.3.1    Profile Catalog

Provider profiles are now available in the Tekla Warehouseservice for collaboration and for storing and sharing Tekla Structures content

In Tekla Warehouse the content items are stored in collections. Tekla Warehouse includes the Tekla Warehouse Service and the Tekla Warehouse web site.

Tekla Warehouse is one of the Tekla Online services.

Added - HISTAR

1.3.4 Item Catalog

                    New Classification defined by the france.ShapeCatalog.Groups.xml file into .\General\profil\shapes\
                    Existing sample shapes are classified and those imported from Tekla Warehouse will be automatically.
                   
                                    

1.4 Organizer

1.4.1 New UNIFORMAT II 2015 (level 4)

1.4.2 New Check and Holes categories 

1.5 Macros

1.5.1 Modeling

Updated:
  
Multi Report Generator
This macrosaved series of actions that includes instructions for a program

Macros are located in the applications and components catalog. They are recorded or created manually and stored as .cs file in a folder defined with the advanced option XS_MACRO_DIRECTORY.

Macros can, for example, be used for creating drawings or reports.

Macros are sometimes used to run an application.

allows to generate lists from a different interface.
It offers the possibility to generate several lists at the same time, to search for a list, to create favorites records, to choose in which folders you want to read .rpt files.
Depending on the extension, the macro will automatically open the list in the appropriate tool.
It is possible to change the name of the output file.
Possibility to open the lists automatically right after their creation.
The change of order in the composition of the list names works again
This extension now offers the possibility to display activated lists if they have already been created.
loading of the list name composition
the possibility to load several template directories is working again.

The installation of this macro now comes from common exe file.
 
Tekla Structures Configurator
This macro allows to generate role and firm folderfolder that is used for storing Tekla Structures-related files customized for a particular organization

A Tekla Structures user can, for example, customize a company’s cloning templates and save them in a sub-folder located under the firm folder. After this, the customized cloning templates can be used in all projects carried out for the company.

easily
for a company according to its sector of activity.
It works with a new Arborescence des dossiers.xlsx file. It explains wich type of entension files need to be past in which type of folder should be pasted into which folder. This is described in a txt file created in each sub-folder.
Two configurations exist, Minimum and Full. It works for firm creation version 2019.0> 2021.0 (New hierarchy)


 

Shrink Tool
This new version of the tool allows the user to shrink contour platepart whose outline form the user defines by picking three or more points

The user can define the shape of the contour plate parallel to the work plane. The profile in use defines the thickness. The corners of the contour plate can be chamfered.

typed object or polygon cutcut that is defined by a polygon

. Positive value to shrink, negative value to enlarge.
It takes into account the unity of the model.
Combine Polybeam
Improvements :
Combine several polybeams and bars in one operation
Combination regardless of the creation direction of the elements
It takes into account the type of the selected part
for example if you have a foundation, it creates objects of type Foundation and not beam as before which is necessary for IFCfile format commonly used in BIM that facilitates software interoperability

IFC is an open specification developed by the IAI (International Alliance for Interoperability).

Model can be exported into an IFC file.

1.6 Templates & Reports

1.6.1 Modified

standardization of list names X_list[space]xxxx, easier to filter them
  • TS_Report_Inquire_Bolt.rpt
It now takes into account the composition of the bolt to calculate the weight of the group

1.7 Objects.inp

new objects_Enveloppe.inp

also contains a new UDAobject property created by the user in order to widen the range of predefined object properties

User-defined attributes are used when the predefined object properties are not sufficient but more properties are needed. For example, comment, locked, and erection status are user-defined attributes.

for surfacing finish. This is useful for representationthe way that the information included in a model is represented visually

in views.

2. Modeling settings

2.1 Common to all roles 

         2.1.1 More Ral Colors and  Ral Representation also available for Surfacing 


 

2.1.2 Additional Pset for IFC export

  • Eveloppe: according to the new uda implemented in this version 2021
  • EPM: especially used during the EPM export
  • Hierachie spatiale: Spatial hierarchy (site/building/floor) is additionally written into the parts and assemblies of an IFC file (either from the organizertool that is used for categorizing and managing model information, object properties and object property queries, and model object classification

    Organizer consists of two tools, object browser and categories.

    or from user attributes.)
    This hierarchy can be used with Trimble Connect(1) application for information sharing and collaboration for construction projects that is based on the Trimble Connect platform

    (1) Reference models are used in Trimble Connect application instead of using import and export.

    (1) Trimble Connect application includes web, desktop and mobile clients, and the Sync tool, for example.

    (2) Trimble’s platform for microservices in the cloud

    (2) Trimble Connect platform’s microservices include services for uploading, storing, processing, and managing or consuming data. These services are meant to provide common solutions required by multiple applications.
