You can convert most linear IFC reference objects such as beams, columns, braces, plates, slabs, footings and walls into native Tekla Structures objects.
To convert IFC reference objects you must add the IFC file as a reference model.
Tekla Structures 2016 now includes two methods in converting the IFC objects into native Tekla Structures objects:
- Direct conversion of the selected IFC objects at one go.
- Converting objects using reference model change management.
Many often, IFC files are added as a reference model for calculations. In those cases, there is no need for converting.
After all, you can use the Organizer in Tekla Structures to inquire the desired information and, if needed, export the information to an Excel-sheet.
