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

  • Embeds tab: 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 MOUNPART 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.

  • Bent meshes with limited rebar angles are now exported with correct origin points.​

  • Reinforcement tab: The new option First bending angle allow settingt the first bending angle of free-flection rodstock negative, as required by certain interfaces.

  • Option to rotate pallet 90° if pallet width exceeded is now working correctly.

  • The maximum number of exported elements or layers in the SLABDATE block is now limited to 99 according to the Unitechnik specification. If the limitation is exceeded, you will be notified by a console and log file message.

  • 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.

  • Steel parts and items now have in the user-defined attributes dialog box a new tab Unitechnik Mountpart, where you can specify data which then overwrites the data entered in the Export Unitechnik (79) dialog box.

  • On the on the Unitechnik Mountpart tab, you can also exclude mounting parts from the export using the new option Exclude from export.

  • You can now export CONTOUR as bounding boxrectangular border with the smallest measure within which all the selected points that position the model objects lie

    In Tekla Structures two-dimensional bounding boxes are used in drawings and three-dimensional bounding boxes in models.

    . It is recommended to use this option with file structure set as: Single layer, 1 slabdate, n parts.

  • You can now use the value Text[Template]#Counter for the following options:
    - Name of order
    - Name of component
    - Drawing number
    - Project line 1-4 text
    - Slabplate that represents a concrete structure

    In Tekla Structures, a slab is created by picking three or more points.

    Slab may be part of a floor, for example.

    number

    - Info text 1 - 4 of slabdate
    - Info text 1 - 2 of mounting part

  • When using template variables, the export now automatically​ checks the topmost content attribute files to get the unit of the template variable and converts it to the unit used in Unitechnik export. 

  • HEADER block data specification tab: You can now specify the number of decimals after the decimal separator.

  • TS configuration tab: You can now prevent exporting cutouts with the new option Export CUTOUTs.

  • TS configuration tab: You can now merge cutouts using the new option Merge CUTOUTS. You can select to export a big cutout which is created by smaller cuts as separate cutouts. The options are:

        1. Merged as one cutout
         

          2. Unmerged, overlapping cutouts
           

          3. Unmerged cutouts with no overlapping

The reference modelmodel which the designer can use as an aid when building another model

A reference model is created in Tekla Structures or in other software and can be inserted to Tekla Structures. The reference model appears together with the model but it is not modified by Tekla Structures. The user can snap to reference model points.

For example, an architectural model, a plant design model, or a heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) model can be a reference model.

Work areacertain portion of the model that is currently active for working on in a view

Tekla Structures indicates the work area using dashed lines. Since objects outside the work area exist but are not visible the user can set a certain sized work area so that the views of the model are simpler and quickly updated, for example.

related visibility issues in reference models using a base pointpoint in a model that is used to define a starting point in surveying and that is used as an anchor point in coordinate and height transformations

A Tekla Structures project can have several base points but only one of them can be the project base point.

Base points allow the use of another coordinate system needed for interoperability and collaboration. Base points can also be used in drawings, and in reports and templates. Model origin is the default base point in Tekla Structures.

Base points are also called control points.

Associative notes were not always cloned when the cloning templatemaster drawing where an existing drawing is used to copy the drawing settings for a new drawing

The new drawing has the same drawing settings as the original drawing.

The user creates a cloning template of a drawing typically after extensive manual modifications have been made in the drawing, in order to achieve the same appearance and contents in new drawings.

In the master drawing catalog, it is possible to create single-part, assembly, and cast unit drawings using cloning templates. It is also possible to add new cloning templates to the master drawing catalog from the document manager.

In a multi-user modelmodel that is used for collaboration and that is opened in multi-user mode

, the selected objects now stay selected when the model is saved. Also, the numberingprocess of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

of the selected objects now works correctly when synchronizing with the master modelmulti-user model from and to which information is fetched and saved in multi-user mode, and into which Tekla Structures merges changes that individual users make in the working models

It is not possible to work on the master model.
