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

TTSD-7454 Drawings

The advanced option XS_USE_RECESS_SYMBOL_FOR_BORDER_AND_CORNER_RECESSES did not work correctly. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-7134 Drawings
Since Tekla Structures 2017, dashed hardware lines have not been scaled by pixels, and if they were drawn in a corner, they started with a line. It has not been possible to scale hardware lines to make them easier to read on the screen. Hardware lines are the first couple of lines in the line list.

Now, these hardware line types are again scaled by pixels by default, which means that they look the same in all zoom levels. There is now a new advanced option XS_SHOW_HARDWARE_DASHED_LINE_IN_PIXEL_SCALE. By setting it to FALSE you can activate the new functionality where dash line scale is the same as in printed and exported drawings, and  the hardware lines work in the same way as the custom lines. The default value is TRUE. The functionality of the custom lines has not changed.

TTSD-6118 Drawings

Previously, there were sometimes extra lines shown when you had a drawing snapshotimage of a drawing that shows the drawing as it was at a certain point in time

Drawing snapshots make it possible to have a quick look at any drawing without opening the drawing. Snapshots are used, for example, for finding a certain drawing edition. Snapshots can be viewed in Tekla Structures but they cannot be edited.
