Parameters tab:

  • The Drawing name source setting now has two new options: Reinforcement UDAobject property created by the user in order to widen the range of predefined object properties

    User-defined attributes are used when the predefined object properties are not sufficient but more properties are needed. For example, comment, locked, and erection status are user-defined attributes.

    and Template. These two new options offer you custom ways of controlling drawing marks, especially if you are working with cast-in-place structures.

  • Now the option Selected reinforcement only also works in drawing modemode that is used for editing the appearance and content of drawings

    Tekla Structures switches to the drawing mode when the user opens any drawing.

    .

  • The name of the setting Fixed drawing name has been changed to User-defined drawing name. This setting is available when you have selected Fixed text, Reinforcement UDA or Template from the Drawing name source list. So in addition to entering a fixed drawning name, you can also use this setting for mapping the reinforcement UDA or template.

  • Two new settings Position source and User-defined reinforcement position have been added to define the reinforcement position. The options for the setting Position source are Reinforcement position, Reinforcement UDA and Fixed text. Exported items with the same position numberidentifier that is assigned to all similar parts, assemblies, cast units, or reinforcement

    Position number consists of a prefix, separator, and running number. The prefix is part of the position number, identifying a numbering series. The running number is part of the position number, and is the assigned number in the numbering series, based on the start number. The separator is an optional character, such as a slash, that separates the prefix and the running number.

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

    In the US, the term piece mark or ship mark is used to refer to a position number.

    but different UDA position number will now be exported to different rows.

UDAs tab:

  • This is a new tab for defining the UDA fields to be used, and fields for defining the content to write into reinforcement UDAs. You can tag UDAs based on release code, release status, release date and released by information. You can also select whether existing UDAs are checked and handled by using the new setting Check existing UDAs. The options are No, Prevent export, Report to log, Report to log and overwrite, and Overwrite only.
