eLearning course - Tekla Structures for bridge designers
This interactive eLearning course consists of tutorials that you can take in any order. The tutorials use the Default environment. The course is in English.
Learn what the acronyms BIM and BrIM mean and how the Tekla Structures workflow for bridges covers the way from road data to fabrication and erection.
Get to know the basic elements of the Tekla Structures user interface. Learn how to open Tekla Structures and Tekla Structures models, use the ribbon, navigate in the model, create views, and use clip planes. Additionally, learn how to hide and show parts, and how to use selection switches and snap...
Learn the best practices for modeling bridges with Tekla Structures. This tutorial covers settings in Tekla Structures, using project and firm folders, model templates, and customizing Tekla Structures. You will also learn how to use Phase Manager to divide your model into phases.
Learn how to start a new bridge project in Tekla Structures, and how to define project properties for your model. Learn about grids and how to modify them, how to use reference models and base points, and how to add them to your model. Finally, learn how to work with views.
Learn how to model concrete parts for bridges. Build bridge substructures including piles, blindings, caps, kickers, and elevations. In addition, learn how to copy parts, how to modify part properties, add part cuts, and how to divide the model into phases.
Learn how to import an IFC file and how to manage changes in a reference model. In addition, learn how to convert concrete geometries from an existing IFC model into native Tekla Structures parts.
Learn how to work with point clouds in Tekla Structures. Attach point clouds to your model and compare them with your model.
Learn how to create parametric profiles by using dwg files and by sketching. Additionally, learn how to edit existing profiles, and how to use sketched profiles in a model.
Learn the basics of Bridge Creator. Learn how to read alignments from xml files, and use the alignments to create key sections. Also, learn about different road alignment point types, how to edit cross-sections and how to create bridge decks.
Learn how to use system components in Tekla Structures, and how to find and manage system components in the Applications & components catalog. Get to know how to find additional components in Tekla Warehouse, how to download the components and how to add them to the model.
Learn what a custom component is and what the benefits of using custom components are. Get to know the different custom component types and learn about parametric custom components. Additionally, learn to create a custom component by modifying an existing component.
Learn about embeds for bridges in Tekla Structures, and how to place them in a model.
