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.

was from right to left and the boundary and/or offset was modified. This has now been fixed. Modifying from right to left now works correctly.

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.

125746 Steel components

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.

(48)
, you can now set the bolt standard for secondary bolts on the Bolts tab.

110958 Steel components

In Welded beam to beam (123), welds are now in the correct positions on both long and short beams.

85710 Steel components

In Full depth S (185), some cuts were previously not created correctly. This has now been fixed.

115542 Steel components

In New notchcut in one component object or input part for receiving another component object or input part

(49)
, the positions and sizes of the web and flange chamfers are now correct.

115637 Steel components

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

(143)
, the bolts are now placed correctly.

116356 Steel components

In Bolted gussetcomponent object that represents a plate that connects braces to a beam, column, or base plate

(11)
, it is now possible to create a chamfer on a gusset when using twin profiles.

118049 Steel components

In Full depth S (185), the shear tabcomponent object that represents a plate welded to the component main part and bolted to the web of the component secondary part

is now cut parallel to the main beam web as set in the beam web cut option.

119535 Steel components

In Bolted gussetcomponent object that represents a plate that connects braces to a beam, column, or base plate

(11)
, it is now possible to define the finish property for a rectangular 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.

124294 Steel components

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

(143)
now applies extra bolt length correctly.

126105 Steel components

Stub (133) now works when the height of the secondary beam is greater than 1500 mm.

126191 Organizer

At opening of 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.

, if the category rules have references to categories that do not exist anymore, Organizer now shows a message about this and removes these references. Previously, an error occurred and Organizer did not open.

125024 Import, export, interoperability

Some IFCfile format commonly used in BIM that facilitates software interoperability

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.

125210 Drawings

Drawing views now have middle handles, which allows easier manipulation of the visible model area.

126070 Drawings

When you now double-click a link to another drawing in an open drawing, Tekla Structures asks you to save the drawing and then opens the linked drawing.

126823 Drawings

Reference models now appear in the drawing 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.

123647 Drawings

In the drawing viewview that includes selected model objects or an area in the model, that is represented in a drawing

A drawing view is a container for model and drawing objects.

A drawing can include several drawing views, which usually are two-dimensional views, plane views, to the model.

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

properties dialog box, modifications to the currently open panel were lost whenever a new panel was selected for the first time from the options tree. This has now been fixed.

Previously, the Applications & components cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.

126103 Numbering

Full numberingprocess 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.
