Defect number Development area Description
124834 Concrete components

Previously, when modifying the geometry of a concrete part with Meshreinforcement that represents a mesh of steel bars in two perpendicular directions

In Tekla Structures, the reinforcement mesh bars in one direction are called main bars and reinforcement mesh bars perpendicular to them are called crossing bars.

bars
, the rebars sometimes disappeared. This has now been fixed.

124584 Concrete components

In Floor layout, the slabplate that represents a concrete structure

In Tekla Structures, a slab is created by picking three or more points.

Slab may be part of a floor, for example.

widths and seam locations changed for asymmetric floor layouts (width of the first and last slabs was different), when the line-up directionconnection or detail property that indicates how the created connection is rotated around the component secondary part, or the created detail around the component main part, relative to the current work plane

The up direction options are +x, -x, +y, -y, +z, -z, and auto.

are now correctly imported to Microsoft Project 2013 and later versions.

128177 Import, export, interoperability

Some reference models saved in Tekla Structures 21.1 final version were not shown in drawings in service release 21.1 SR 6 or progress release 21.1.7 after you had added more parts to the Tekla Structures model and saved and reopened the model. This has now been fixed.
If you have a model saved in Tekla Structures 21.1 final version, and you start using service release 21.1 SR 7 or progress release 21.1.8, you should first ensure that all reference models are found in their file paths, make all reference models visible, and refresh them in the model and then hide them again, if originally hidden. Files that cannot be found are reported in the session history. Then save the Tekla Structures model in the current version.
This ensures that the changed handling of reference files is taken into use and 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.

visibility is remembered in drawings.

IFC is an open specification developed by the IAI (International Alliance for Interoperability).

Model can be exported into an IFC file.

models created with Graitec Advanced Steel would cause an error when you tried to convert to objects if they contained unnamed IFC Presentation Layer Assignments. This has now been fixed.

IFC models could not be converted to Tekla Structures model objects, if they contained IFC circles defined by a single point. This has now been fixed.

hidden lines were incorrectly drawn in drawings even though the necessary advanced optionssettings used to customize Tekla Structures for specific companies, standards, users, or user groups

In Tekla Structures, advanced options are settings that are used, for example, in a specific project or geographical area, or by a specific company.

In Tekla Structures, advanced options usually begin with the initials XS and are followed by the name of the function, for example XS_BACKGROUND_COLOR.

Examples of drawing views in Tekla Structures include main views, section views, single-part views, and 3D views.
