TTSD-20456 Import, export, interoperability

In DWG/DXF export, when adding, editing or deleting multiple rules, the buttons are now always visible. Previously they would not be visible with multiple rules if the list of rules was scrolled down.

TTSD-19481 Import, export, interoperability

The performance of locking and unlocking multiple reference models in 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.

list has been improved.

TTSD-15992 Import, export, interoperability

In DWG export, there is now a new check to see if files can be written to before the export starts. You are also prompted to close the files. If an exported file already exists, a dialog box is displayed asking if you want to overwrite the existing files.

TTSD-15599 Import, export, interoperability

A model object is either created in a model or imported into it.

extremes are no longer exported.

TTSD-16747 Drawings

When you create several drawings at a time, Tekla Structures shows a progress dialog with a Cancel button. However, clicking the Cancel button did not stop creating new drawings, but created them without templates. This has now been fixed. Moreover, now the dialog box also shows two progress bars: the first bar shows what is done for each drawing, and it goes back and forth. The second bar proceeds steadily after every drawing.

TTSD-4111 Drawings

Previously snap settings in drawings were saved only if you saved the drawing through the File menu. The settings were not saved if you saved the drawing by closing the drawing and selecting the Save option. Now snap settings are saved properly in both cases.

TTSD-21393 Tekla Model Sharing

With some reference models, the changes list in a shared modelmodel used for collaboration over the Tekla Model Sharing service

With a shared model, each user works with their own model and the changes are shared through Tekla Model Sharing. A shared model requires the use of a single-user model. The same model cannot be a shared model and a multi-user model.

now checks if the current system locale is compatible with the system locale that was used when the model was shared. This check helps to avoid issues when distributed teams are using the model. Tekla Structures is not a fully Unicode application and it may function incorrectly when a shared model is opened with a system locale that is incompatible with the one that was used when starting to share the model.

When you use standard-part models in 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.

, the standard parts now get the start numberfirst number of a numbering series
