models, using Organizer or some other .NET tools could previously cause errors at write out when using the Project viewer role. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-22080 Analysis and design

In a Tekla Model Sharing 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.

, when you read in changes that included an analysis modelstructural model that is created from a physical model and used on the one hand for analyzing structural behavior and load bearing, and on the other hand for design

Analysis model can be viewed in Tekla Structures in a model view.

Analysis model that is made with Tekla Structures can be worked on in other analysis and design software or application.

, and an autosaved model was created after read in and the model then reopened without saving, the analysis model could sometimes be lost. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-22656 Analysis and design

Previously, when a user had created an analysis modelstructural model that is created from a physical model and used on the one hand for analyzing structural behavior and load bearing, and on the other hand for design

Analysis model can be viewed in Tekla Structures in a model view.

Analysis model that is made with Tekla Structures can be worked on in other analysis and design software or application.

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

and another user saved the model, this new analysis model was not visible for either user in the Analysis & Design Model dialog box. This has now been fixed.

Model view is available also in the drawing mode and it is represented in its own window.

definition, the beams and columns that have a fittingadjustment of a part end

plane at both ends are shorter than in the model. The error does not occur when line cuts are used instead or only one fitting is used.  This has now been fixed.

TSAC-1458 Concrete components

Rebar coupler and end anchor components have been changed so that they set the phase of the coupler/end anchor to be the same as the phase of the related primary reinforcement bar.

Note that if you change the phase of the coupler/end anchor manually afterwards, this manual change will be overridden whenever the coupler/end anchor component gets updated.

TSAC-2390 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Production thicknesses of double wallplate that represents a structure such as a wall or roof panel

In Tekla Structures, a panel is created by picking two or more points.

In cast-in-place concrete the term wall refers to a concept similar to panel.

shells are now calculated so that the 1st shell thickness reports sub-assemblyassembly in a nested assembly that is subordinate to a parent assembly

thickness including braced girders, and the 2nd shell reports complete cast unit thickness regardless of the chosen dialog box option.  This is to ensure that the production thickness values comply with the curing chamber slot maximum height.

TSAC-2452 Steel components

In Rebar holesmall hollow open throughout a part or assembly that is usually used for fastening parts with bolts or other such objects

Hole is created in the same way as bolts and hole properties are defined in the bolt properties.

, when Rounding type on the Parameters tab is set to Round by table and Hole type on the Advanced tab is set to Part cutcut that is defined by a cutting part

or Bolt hole + part cut, if the maximum rebar diameter value in the table is smaller than the rebar diameter defined in the rebar properties, Tekla Structures displayes a warning message: Rebar diameter from table is smaller than the rebar diameter from model.

TTSD-17887 Modeling

If you need to reset pour unitentity that combines together a pour object and the other building objects that need to be in place before cast-in-place concrete can be poured

The needed building objects can be reinforcement and embeds, for example.

contents and relations defined using the Calculate pour units command and/or the Add to pour unit command, you can now use the following commands in Quick Launchtool that is used for quickly finding commands, dialog boxes, and other functions in Tekla Structures

The other functions include local content from Tekla Warehouse, for example.

:

  • Reset all pour unit relations
  • Reset all manually assigned pour unit relations
  • Reset all pour unit relations except manual assignments

The first two commands have a dialog box where you confirm the command. This is because you cannot undo the commands.
