      .

    • 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.

    • Two new settings Position source and User-defined reinforcement position have been added to define the reinforcement position. The options for the setting the position source are Reinforcement position, Reinforcement UDA and Fixed text. Exported item 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.

    • Operations with drawing data and reinforcement positions now use the same method to get the UDA values. If a UDA does not have any value, this is reported in the log.

  • 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.
