Eliplan Export (68) has been improved, and now there are new settings that give you more control in plotting, without making major changes in the model:

  • Export now checks the Top in Form Face setting for all parts, if in use.

  • Slabs narrowed by cutting are now exported correctly regardless of the modeling direction. Slabs narrowed by cutting are now oriented systematically, thereby having other cuts and plotting also positioned correctly. If thre is one narrowed sidet, it will be the side with length L2.

  • New settings on the Plotter tab:

    • It is now possible to exclude from exported plotting data embeds by 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.

      , name or material with the new setting Exclude embeds by.

    • When you export cutout plotting data with the option Full depth cuts only, now the actual full depth cut geometry is exported without recesses.

    • You can also exclude from exported plotting data embeds or cuts that are above the specified Z position by using the new setting Exclude above z position. Z position is the depth of the element on the pallet, that is how many millimeters the lowest point of the embedbuilding object that represents an object that is to be cast into a concrete structure and that is used to connect structures or as an aid when constructing a structure

      For example, a cast-in socket is an embed that is placed in concrete structures to allow parts to be bolted together on site. In Tekla Structures, embeds are modeled as steel sub-assemblies that are inside a concrete nested assembly.

  • On the Data content tab:

    • In Decimal mark, you can set period (.) or comma (.) as the decimal separator.

    • In Weight calculation, you can select which weight will be exported.

    • In Net area calculation, you can select whether the export excludes all cuts or only full depth cuts from the net area calculation. The whole assembly is checked.

    • In No. of digits after decimal point, you can now set 3 digits after the decimal separator. The default value is now 1 digit. Now this option also affects volume, gross area and net area.

Unitechnik Export (79) has been improved in the following way:

  • When you used rotation in export, the line attribute override did not take rotation in to account. This has now been fixed.

  • It is now possible to export reinforcement bars as mount parts.

  • Values that are exported in the SLABDATE block are now checked against Unitechnik format constraints for character amount. When any limits are exceeded, user is notified via a console or log file.

  • You can now specify the transport pile level number in part user-defined attributes dialog box on the Unitechnik tab. This is an optional field.  If there are elements in the stack that need to be layered on the same level, then the pile level is used. This can be defined in the export settings in the Transport pile level number field to be included as part of SLABDATE block.

  • Cage reinforcement main dimensions are now exported in cage's coordinate system instead of the pallet's coordinate system, according to the Unitechnik 6.1.0 specifications.

Embeds tab:

  • Using the All cutouts as corner symbol, you can  export cutouts as mount parts with corner symbols.

  • Cuts that have been specified with a 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.

    can now be exported in the MOUNT PART block with the option Cutpart former.

  • When exporting rebar as mount part with option Cut outer assemblies, now the correct geometry of rebar is exported.

  • Using the Opening with corner symbols, you can specify classes of embeds that will be exported with corner symbols instead of mount part symbols. Symbol size can be defined in the dialog box.
  • You can now specify embedbuilding object that represents an object that is to be cast into a concrete structure and that is used to connect structures or as an aid when constructing a structure

    For example, a cast-in socket is an embed that is placed in concrete structures to allow parts to be bolted together on site. In Tekla Structures, embeds are modeled as steel sub-assemblies that are inside a concrete nested assembly.

    Z positions as Z = 0. Special assembly symbol plotting definition for Z=0 is now PALLET, for Minimum to pallet it is now BOTTOM and for Start point it is now MIDDLE. 

Reinforcement tab:

  • You can now export spacer start position and spacer pitch information with the new settings Spacer start position and Spacer pitch.

Reinf. data specification tab:

  • The new option Welded leg designation can be used for designating the welded leg in bent meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

    In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

  • In Pull force, specify the attribute from which the strandreinforcement that represents a group of wires spun together

    pull force is to be inquired. In Unitechnik version 6.0, you can set the Unitechnik reinforcement type to 9 in the reinforcing barreinforcement that represents a steel bar used to reinforce a concrete structure
