127620 Organizer

In Tekla Structures 2016i, when you set the XS_ENABLE_POUR_MANAGEMENT advanced option to TRUE in a model, Organizer did full synchronization every time you opened Organizer in the model.

Pop-marks for plates with holes were created incorrectly in NC files. This has now been fixed.

126786 Import, export, interoperability

Now you can also refresh locked reference models with the Refresh button. To do this, set the new advanced option XS_REFRESH_ALSO_LOCKED_REFERENCE_MODELS to TRUE in File > Settings > Advanced options > Import. This system-specific option is by default set to FALSE.

126647 Import, export, interoperability

Some IFC strip footings were sometimes positioned incorrectly after conversion. IFC strip footings are now converted to objects so that their handle points are positioned in the middle of the profile instead of on the top.

125024 Import, export, interoperability

Some IFC models created with Graitec Advanced Steel would cause an error when you tried to convert to objects if they contained unnamed IFC Presentation Layer Assignments. This has now been fixed.

124792 Import, export, interoperability

When you exported a plate with attached parts and bolt groups, the first bolt group was offset incorrectly. This has now been fixed.

125984 Templates and reports

Bent plate dimensions in the Inquire dialog box and templates in drawings were showing three dimensional measures instead of unfolding dimensions. This has now been fixed.

125599 Templates and reports

The template attribute NUMBER_VISIBLE now works correctly and shows the number of rebars in the visible view.

124308 Templates and reports

You can now set the site bolts to supporting member in reports and KSS by setting the new user-specific advanced option XS_REPORT_BOLTS_WITH_SUPPORTING_MEMBER to TRUE in Settings > Advanced options > Templates and Symbols. The default value is FALSE.

An AutoDrawings wizard is a file-based wizard consisting of several sets of drawing requests containing drawing, attribute and part settings to apply to selected objects, as well as a selection filter. The order of sets is important, as Tekla Structures by default creates only one drawing for each object.

127009 Drawings

Hidden line removal for reference models in drawings was not always working if the reference model was not visible on the modeling side. This has now been fixed.

126705 Drawings

126070 Drawings

When you now double-click a link to another drawing in an open drawing, Tekla Structures asks you to save the drawing and then opens the linked drawing.

125901 Drawings

The attribute NUMBER_IN_DRAWING shows the number of all rebars in a drawing that have the same position number. The neighbor part rebars are ignored. Only use NUMBER_IN_DRAWING in the main part marks in a drawing and not in the marks of the visible neighbor reinforcement.

125869 Drawings

When the advanced option XS_ROTATE_CUT_VIEWS is set to BY_SYMBOL_MAIN_VIEW or you create drawings using column as the main part, drawing update was removing all dimensions from section views.  In cloning, the section views did not get any dimensions. This has now been fixed.

125839 Drawings

123647 Drawings

In the drawing view properties dialog box, modifications to the currently open panel were lost whenever a new panel was selected for the first time from the options tree. This has now been fixed.

123442 Drawings

The selection switch toolbar in drawings now has a new button that opens the Selection filter dialog box.

122756 Drawings

125977 Tekla Model Sharing

Previously, when using a custom part in a shared model, the custom part objects were not correctly updated in the local versions of the model after read in when the custom part was updated in the original model in which it was created. This has now been fixed.

122431 Tekla Model Sharing

In Tekla Model Sharing, task dependency changes are now reported in the sharing changes list.

127588 Modeling

Previously, when the radius check box was not selected in the curved beam properties, modifying other part properties made the curved beams straight. This has now been fixed.

127171 Modeling

Previously, you had to use Interrupt to end the Remove from pour unit command. This has now been fixed. The command ends once you have used it.

127129 Modeling

Previously, Tekla Structures stopped working when you changed the material of bent plates from steel to concrete. This has now been fixed.

126917 Modeling

Sometimes, modifying a view filter caused a crash if template attributes were added in the filter. This has now been fixed.

126794 Modeling

When the geometry of a bent plate was modified, or if the bent plate was exploded, the part coordinate system could be incorrect. This has now been fixed.

126756 Modeling

Previously, a polygon plate that was created by exploding a bent plate could be erroneously rotated. This has now been fixed.

126474 Modeling

After you have run the pour unit calculation, you can now report pour object properties using template attributes.
For example, to find out to which pour a rebar belongs, use the POUR_OBJECT.POUR_NUMBER template attribute to report the pour number.

126128 Modeling

When objects have been made transparent using the Show only selected + Shift command, clicking the Pour view button redraws the objects transparently, as it should.

125560 Modeling

When the Show only selected + Shift command is used on a CIP part/ pour, clicking the Pour view button draws the related pours/CIP parts only.

125531 Modeling
