The running number is part of the position number, and is the assigned number in the numbering series, based on the start number. The separator is an optional character, such as a slash, that separates the prefix and the running number.

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

      In the US, the term piece mark or ship mark is used to refer to a position number.

    • Operations with drawing data and reinforcement positions now use the same method to get the UDA values. If a UDA does not have any value, this is reported in the log.

  • UDAs tab:

    • This is a new tab for defining the UDA fields to be used, and fields for defining the content to write into reinforcement UDAs. You can tag UDAs based on release code, release status, release date and released by information. You can also select whether existing UDAs are checked and handled by using the new setting Check existing UDAs.

There is a new template attributeattribute in a template object that Tekla Structures uses to calculate and display information from a model database

Template attributes represent object properties.

ADDED_TO_POUR_UNIT to indicate how an object was added to a pour unitentity that combines together a pour object and the other building objects that need to be in place before cast-in-place concrete can be poured

The needed building objects can be reinforcement and embeds, for example.

The attribute is in the template category in filters and in the template attributes for the following object types:
ASSEMBLY
BOLT

Export EliPlan file (68): With the new setting Filter by part on the Parameters tab you can designate parts which will be excluded or included in export by classpart 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.

Export Unitechnik (79): You can now validate rebar and 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.
