Release Notes - Tekla Structures 21.1.8

Defect number Development area Description
126018 Steel components

In Std bracing connection (67), creating a default 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.

for one or two secondary beams now works better than before. When using one secondary beam, Tekla Structures no longer crashes.

127954 Organizer

In 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.

, when you had a category with a filter that referred to a Project category to use the Project category content, and you changed the object content of the Project category, only the second Organizer synchronization updated the object content of the category using the filter. This has now been fixed.

127469 Task Manager

When copying tasks without objects in Task managertool that enables the linking of temporal data to a model

The task manager can be used to create, save, and manage tasks that are used to create a schedule.

Model objects can be added to the tasks. Organizer categories can be used to select the model objects that will be added to the tasks.

, the value in the Quantity column in the Task manager table is now correctly shown as 0,0.

126658 Task Manager

In Task managertool that enables the linking of temporal data to a model

The task manager can be used to create, save, and manage tasks that are used to create a schedule.

Model objects can be added to the tasks. Organizer categories can be used to select the model objects that will be added to the tasks.

, when you click   to calculate the planned dates for the objects in the taskin the task manager, a representation of a piece of work that needs to be carried out in order to complete a project

, the subtasks of the selected task are also updated.

125608 Task Manager

Tasks exported from Task managertool that enables the linking of temporal data to a model

The task manager can be used to create, save, and manage tasks that are used to create a schedule.

Model objects can be added to the tasks. Organizer categories can be used to select the model objects that will be added to the tasks.

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.

123274 Import, export, interoperability

The conversion of profile 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.

to contour platepart whose outline form the user defines by picking three or more points

The user can define the shape of the contour plate parallel to the work plane. The profile in use defines the thickness. The corners of the contour plate can be chamfered.

is now working correctly in the SDNF export.

127362 Drawings

Dimensions in the drawing views moved to GA drawings are now updated correctly.

127223 Drawings

Leader lineline that connects an annotation object to the related object or point

for merged reinforcement marks is now kept in the correct location.

126708 Drawings

Sometimes 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.

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.

were set. This has now been fixed.

126636 Drawings

When you tried to export a drawing into a DWG file, a warning message appeared. This has now been fixed.

125869 Drawings

When the advanced option XS_ROTATE_CUT_VIEWS is set to BY_SYMBOL_MAIN_VIEW or you create drawings using column as 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

(1) Main part can be an assembly main part or a cast unit main part.

(2) input part that the user selects first when creating a component

(2) Connections and details always have a component main part.

, drawing update was removing all dimensions from section views.  In cloning, the section views did not get any dimensions. This has now been fixed.

117834 Drawings

Reinforcement was not shown  right away in assembly drawings, but only after modifying the view. This has now been fixed.

115636 Drawings

When you use view-level dimensioning and dimensioning type Integrated dimensions, the dimension properties for angle dimensions are now also applied to automatically created radius dimensions.

128324 Modeling

Previously, Tekla Structures stopped working in some cases when importing profiles. This has now been fixed.

126992 Core

When you copy an object using the Copy special > Rotate command, the solid creation is now correct in all cases. Previously, there was a solid error in some cases.
