Previously, option type UDAs could only have 50 options in the list of options. This issue appeared when using the side pane, Organizertool that is used for categorizing and managing model information, object properties and object property queries, and model object classification

Organizer consists of two tools, object browser and categories.

, or in the Open API. Now option type UDAs can have 400 options.

Previously, pour breaks did not work in some cases when the parts forming the pour were very slightly tilted. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-5272 Modeling

Pour breaks now work more reliably in cases where the parts forming a pour objectbuilding object that is formed of one or more cast-in-place concrete parts, or parts of cast-in-place concrete parts

The cast-in-place concrete parts are merged into one pour object if they have the same material grade and pour phase, and if they touch each other. Pour objects are visible in pour view.

dialog box and clicked OK, and then used the Undo command, the modified property still stayed in the Analysis model properties dialog box. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-32726 Tools and components

In custom components, bitmap (.bmp) images from the model folderfolder that is used for storing files associated with a model

Tekla Structures stores all files associated with a model in a folder it creates with the same name as the model database (.db1).

In multi-user mode all users access the same model folder.

are now correctly shown in the component dialog box.

TTSD-32086 User interface

The contextual toolbarfloating toolbar that contains commands for modifying the most common object properties

The user can customize the contextual toolbar.

now loads the previously used contextual toolbar profile when Tekla Structures is started even if the profile file is saved in the firm folderfolder that is used for storing Tekla Structures-related files customized for a particular organization

A Tekla Structures user can, for example, customize a company’s cloning templates and save them in a sub-folder located under the firm folder. After this, the customized cloning templates can be used in all projects carried out for the company.

. The firm folder location needs to be defined in the teklastructures.ini file.

TSAC-4024 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Previously, some meshes, on a slightly inclined plane compared to pallet plane, were not correctly rotated to the pallet plane with option Meshes export: Turned to pallet. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-4023 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Now, when there are multiple wire sizes in the same layer for the same direction of wires in the STEELMAT block, they are exported with the same concrete cover (the same Z coordinate offset).

TSAC-3791 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export EliPlan file (68): Rectangular openings at the edge of hollow core slabs with certain profiles were occasionally exported as a thin line, instead of box-shape. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-3705 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): STEELMAT insertion point, length and width were previously incorrectly exported for certain bent and unfolded meshes. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-3704 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export EliPlan file (68): Previously, full depth cuts placed at hollow core profile chamfer lines with certain profiles  were exported with incorrect geometry. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-3656 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): Previously, line attributes were not exported for second shell of the 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.

when Double wall turned was set to No, shell-specific coordinate systems on the TS configuration tab. This has now been fixed.

TSAC-3517 Import, export, interoperability (concrete)

Export Unitechnik (79): You can now specify Output file structure as Single layer, 1 slabdate, n steelmats on the Main tab. This new option only exports the main part(1) part that exists in a building object and that determines the position number for the assembly or cast unit and the direction of assembly or cast unit drawings
