, the standard-part models are now shared correctly. Previously, read in blocked the .db1 file of the standard-part modelmodel that contains standard parts and that is only used for defining part prefixes when numbering parts in the current model

in the model folderfolder that is used for storing files associated with a model

Tekla Structures stores all files associated with a model in a folder it creates with the same name as the model database (.db1).

In multi-user mode all users access the same model folder.

It is again possible to have contour plates which have a smaller than 1.5 mm distance between the corner points.

Previously, converting a single user model to a multi-user modelmodel that is used for collaboration and that is opened in multi-user mode

could cause Tekla Structures to crash. This happened when you opened the model from File menu > Open > Recent and clicked Convert to multi-user model. This has now been fixed.

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.
