Release Notes - Fixes in Tekla Structures 21.1 SR8

Defect number Development area Description
128524 Concrete components

In Mesh reinforcement 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 by area
, bars are again created only to the area defined by the polygon input.

128523 Concrete components

In Mesh reinforcement 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 by area
, when modifying the polygon area around cuts, the bars are again cut correctly.

122145 Concrete components

Wall plate that represents a structure such as a wall or roof panel

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

to wall connection component for creating such component objects that automatically connect component secondary parts to a component main part and create the necessary other objects

A connection can be a system or a custom component. Other objects can include bolts, welds, cuts, and fittings.

has been changed to work correctly when the wall is shorter than 4 times the thickness.

129110 Steel components

In Shear plate (1) part that represents a flat structure

(1) In some contexts, for example in analysis, the term plate object may be used to refer to plates.

(2) plate that represents a steel structure

(2) Plate is mainly used as a connection piece or as a floor plate.

simple (146)
, the plate washer width and top flange cutback are now applied correctly as defined in the component properties.

123193 Steel components

In Tube gusset component object that represents a plate that connects braces to a beam, column, or base plate

(20)
, the middle end plate component object that represents a plate welded perpendicular to the end of the component secondary part

is now positioned correctly with the correct thickness defined in the component dialog box.

120667 Steel components

In Two sided clip angle component object that represents a right angle that is made of a standard L-shaped profile and that connects parts

(143)
, the bolts on the clip angles are no longer missing.

114538 Steel components

In Two sided clip angle component object that represents a right angle that is made of a standard L-shaped profile and that connects parts

(143)
, the bolts are now correctly rotated on the angle box.

129562 Organizer

In Organizer tool for categorizing and managing model information, object properties and object property queries, and model object classification

The organizer consists of two tools, object browser and categories.

, the CLASS part property that groups parts according to identifiers given by the user

The identifiers of classes are usually numbers. Classes can be used for defining the color of parts in the model, for example. Class does not influence the numbering of model objects.

_ATTR
 property now works correctly.

127196 Organizer

In Organizer tool for categorizing and managing model information, object properties and object property queries, and model object classification

The organizer consists of two tools, object browser and categories.

, the latest object properties properties associated with an object type

Usually a single object property includes a default value that the user can modify.

are now by default updated to Object Browser tool in the organizer used to inquire, view, and report model information based on selected model objects

for the export to Excel. The Update object properties from model option in the Export data to Excel dialog box is by default selected.

126694 Organizer

Previously, small inaccuracies in the coordinates of the grid modeling aid that represents a three-dimensional complex of horizontal and vertical planes

In Tekla Structures, grids are used as an aid in locating objects in a model. The grid is shown on the view plane by dash-and-dot lines. It is also possible to show grids and grid line labels in drawings, and to modify grid properties in the drawings.

It is possible to have more than one grid in a model. For example, a large-scale grid for the entire structure, and smaller grids for some detailed sections.

could cause Organizer tool for categorizing and managing model information, object properties and object property queries, and model object classification

not to open. This has now been fixed.

128348 Import, export, interoperability

Eliplan Import (69) now supports the import of info texts.

123210 Import, export, interoperability

In Export EliPLAN (68) you can now set a special tag for elements that have notch cuts using the new option Tag special elements.

119579 Import, export, interoperability

In Export Unitechnik (79), some reinforcement were incorrectly recognized as 3D, which the export does not support. This has now been fixed.

128185 Drawings

Dual dimensios are now placed correctly on automatically created dimension lines when adding or removing dimension points.

125892 Drawings

In drawing re-creation, marks were not always created correctly. This has now been fixed.

128147 Tekla Model Sharing

When opening a shared model model 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.

, a warning message is displayed if the database file versions do not match the Tekla Structures model (xslib.db1, environment.db, options_model.db, options_drawings.db). The database files need to be replaced before sharing can be used. The warning message includes the version (packet number) from which the files need to be copied.

128138 Tekla Model Sharing

In Tekla Model Sharing cloud service for collaboration and for storing and sharing a model

Tekla Model Sharing is one of the Tekla online services.

, when creating full packets, the packet was sometimes created incorrectly if some file was modified during the process. This situation is now checked and packet creation is stopped.
Tekla Structures displays a message about the file that caused write out to fail. To write out, you can exclude this file from sharing, for example.

127962 Tekla Model Sharing

Previously, setting numbering process of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

to Check for standard parts with any other option than Compare to old caused inconsistent numbering data that resulted in incorrect refreshes during model sharing. This has now been fixed. Parts that match standard parts now function as if set to Compare to old.

127735 Tekla Model Sharing

In Tekla Model Sharing cloud service for collaboration and for storing and sharing a model

Tekla Model Sharing is one of the Tekla online services.

, the standard-part models are now shared correctly. Previously, read in blocked the .db1 file of the standard-part model model that contains standard parts and that is only used for defining part prefixes when numbering parts in the current model

in the model folder folder 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.

In Tekla Model Sharing cloud service for collaboration and for storing and sharing a model

Tekla Model Sharing is one of the Tekla online services.

, objects that have conflicting numbers are not updated to the next available numbers anymore. Instead, numbering process of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

for the objects is reset.

126950 Numbering

Sometimes, the numbering process of assigning position numbers to parts, cast units, assemblies, or reinforcement

In Tekla Structures, the position numbers assigned in the numbering are shown in marks and templates, for example.

status, whether up-to-date or not, was not correctly preserved when saving a shared model model 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.
