You can now define on the Attributes tab that cuts are ignored in strand creation using the following settings: Create strand at voids, Cut strands at voids, Cover thickness, and Min. strands length.

TSAC-3055 Concrete components

In layout, a change has been made in concrete layers. Previously, when the prefix or value of a layer was empty, the prefix or start number got the value of the cast unit from the General tab. Now the prefix or start number will get the value set in the advanced options XS_​CONCRETE_​PART_​NUMBERING_​PREFIX and XS_​CONCRETE_​PART_​NUMBERING_​START_NUMBER when the values are set to empty.

TSAC-2875 Concrete components

layout elementation has several improvements:

• Weight in imperial settings now reads lbs correctly.
• Max weight now has a default of 10000kg when you do not enter any value.
• When there are no precast parts in the wall layout, the following error message is now shown: "Selected wall layout does not have any precast layers and therefore elementation is not possible."
TTSD-3985 Drawings

Locking an issued drawing caused the drawing to always change its status to "Issued drawing changed" in the , even though the drawing itself was not changed. Now, locking an unchanged issued drawing will not change the drawing status. Locking a drawing that was modified after issuing will, however, retain its "changed" status.
Reading in Issued sets locally locked to unlocked state, and reading in sets locally Issued to not issued state.

TTSD-25782 Modeling

An issue that would have caused certain previously imported shapes in the to be incorrectly cleaned has been fixed in Tekla Structures. The affected shapes typically have had holes and have been imported to Tekla Structures using a version prior to Tekla Structures version 2018i, and then cleaned in version 2018i or newer using the Shape cleaner . The incorrect result could be seen in the as missing faces on the cleaned shapes.

TSAC-1380 Concrete components

layout: You can now split a wall layout component into separate components. To split the wall layout, create a seam, then select the seam and click the split command in the . The split is persistent and there is no combine command.
Note also that if the splitting seam contains some detailing components, those components will be lost in the split but the seam offsets will be maintained.

TSAC-2437 Concrete components

In panel reinforcement, the Minimum breaking distance has been improved to work in wall corners so that the value is checked both in the horizontal and vertical directions, and the cut is ignored only if both are smaller than the input value.
The default value (value used when the Minimum breaking distance value is empty) has been changed from 100 mm to 0 mm.

TTSD-23098 Modeling

The Diagnose model command now adds a new line "Obsolete object modification rows found." if there are any rows to be removed in the . Use the Repair model command to remove these rows. This can considerably reduce the database size if it had become too large as a result of creating and deleting multiple objects with UDAs.

TTSD-29301 Modeling

Previously, when you had selected all parts in a cast unit with the Alt key pressed and you had the Select components active, trying to deselect a in the cast unit by clicking the sub-assembly with the Ctrl button pressed could cause Tekla Structures to crash. This has now been fixed.

TTSD-23785 Tekla Model Sharing

Previously, when a user of a was assigned the Editor role and the user opened Tekla Structures with a configuration that did not support that role, the user was shown a message prompting to open Tekla Structures with an empty role (""). This has now been fixed so that the message more clearly states the required role.

TTSD-25123 Modeling

Previously, cross sections could sometimes get incorrectly renamed with a redundant extension " 2", when automatically renamed after importing profiles (for example, "A100 2 2", or "A100 2 2 2 2"). Now the deduplication numbers in names are incremented correctly (for example, "A100 3", "A100 4", and so on).

TTSD-25588 Drawings

When a view is selected, and the selection is lost due to selecting in a rule in the dimensioning rules panel (which leads to selecting the related dimensions), that view selection is restored when the view properties dialog box is closed or the dimensioning rule is deselected. This makes it possible to modify the view after a dimensioning rule is selected and deleted.

TTSD-16206 Tekla Model Sharing

In shared models, for parametric sketched profiles with several properties, the profile geometries were calculated incorrectly after read in until model was saved and reopened. Now this has been fixed. The geometries are correct after read in. Note that all users of model need have this Service Pack in use when writing out and reading in to have the correct geometries.

TSAC-1896 Concrete components

In Detailing manager, the Filter and Attribute lists now show long filter and attribute file names correctly when you open the lists. When you have selected a filter or an attribute file with a long name that does not fit in the list box and place the mouse pointer on the name, the whole name is now shown in a tooltip.

TTSD-22960 Tekla Model Sharing

In , profile import has been improved as follows:

TSAC-2735 Reinforcement

Previously, if you used a Rebar coupler or Rebar end anchor component with rebar sets and manually attached the rebar set bars to another part, the components remained attached to the original part. This has now been fixed. Now both the rebars set bars and the components are correctly attached to the other part.

TTSD-24940 Drawings

Tekla Structures does not crash anymore when modifying a drawing even if the definitions are missing from the objects.inp.
The User-defined attributes dialog box is not available at all in the drawing dialog box  if UDAs are missing from the environment. Previously,clicking the panel caused an error.

TTSD-26273 Import, export, interoperability

Reference models: The data handling of reference models sometimes failed, and the Temp.tmp file remained in .\DataStorage\ref folder. As a result, saving of a multi user model froze Tekla Structures and it needed to be closed from .  Tekla Structures also froze in single user model. These have now been fixed.

TSAC-738 Concrete components

In Seam applicator, the browse button for selecting seam property files now works correctly.
Note: After this change, modifying Seam applicator components created with older Tekla Structures versions do not work correctly. The Seam applicator component has to be recreated in the model.

TTSD-14480 Tekla Model Sharing

Previously in , saving a copy of a with the Save As option could erase the creation time and creator of model objects. This has now been fixed so that the creation time of model objects is the time that the copied model was saved, and the creator is the user that saved the model.

TTSD-21806 User interface

Previously, when you clicked a selection or button, and then clicked another selection or snap switch button, the button you had clicked first also stayed selected for some time. This happened when a firm or was mapped to a network drive and the network connection was slow. Now this has been fixed.

TSAC-3030 Concrete components

Previously, in layout connector, the layer-specific attributes (framing case and offsets) in the Wall layout connector dialog box and the actual connection in the model did not match. This issue appeared when the connected primary wall layout had any surfaces other than the last layer.

TTSD-17107 Import, export, interoperability

IFC4 export:  Tekla Structures crashed when you were using a large number of characters for the file name in the IFC4 export dialog box. This has now been fixed. If the the number of characters exceeds Microsoft Windows character limit the characters are removed from the file name.

TTSD-27776 Drawings

Reference models: Assembly, cast unit, and single-part drawings: Previously, section symbols were created very far apart and view boundaries were too large if the model contained reference models, even when the reference models were not visible in the drawings. This has now been fixed.
