The Built-up Angles custom partcomponent for creating a part that cannot be created by using any existing part command or part profile
Typically, custom parts are used to create parts that have a complex composition. For example, castellated beams and sandwich panels are often created as custom parts.
allows user to create the built up angle beam along with spacer plates.
How to Locate
Installers are available at Built-up Custom Parts
After installation, the ‘Built-up Angle’ custom part is available in the component catalogcatalog that contains all system components and custom components, and the macros and applications
The term component catalog is used in Tekla Structures until version 21.1.
group 'Built-up Custom Parts'.
The user has to pick the start point and end point and the built up angle beam will be created.
Custom Part Dialog box

Plug-in is a .dll file and loaded inside Tekla Structures process.
Plug-ins can be started from the applications and components catalog.
dialog box contains following tabs.
The following section types which can be created along with angles and spacer plates are.
|Back to Back Angle|
|Vertical long leg option|
|Horizontal long leg option|
|Non symmetrical batten plates|
|Symmetrical batten plates|
|Horizontal and vertical batten plates are created alternatively.|
|Only horizontal batten plates are created.|
|Only vertical batten plates are created.|
|No batten plates are created.|
|Vertical batten plate is created at start|
|Horizonal batten plate is created at start|
Parameters - Plate Prefix
All available 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.
profile prefixes is displayed to opt. If default option is opted then prefix is read from Menu -> Settings -> Options -> Components -> Profile Names -> Plate.
You can enter part properties in this tab page. 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.
properties and Name can be entered for all parts seperately. You have an option to enter same values for Material / Finish / 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.
or different values by selecting Same / different from dropdown at top.
You can also provide Assembly User defined attributes from this page.
On Plane: Options Middle, Right and Left
Rotation: Top, Front, Back and Below
At Depth: Middle, Front and Behind
Option is avaialble to adjust boundry center by selecting 'Yes' from dropdown.
Bolt centers – Along Brace
These values are distance list and each distance represents bolt centers for each batten plate in the order of creation. Please note that bolt centers within single batten plate is same. Based on bolt centers, the number of bolts are calculated based on batten plate width.
Bolt centers – Across Brace
The gauge details can be entered manually or else you can select automatically based on standard gauges.
* Standard Gauge details text file located in below path, hence you can modify the Gauge details as per your need.
When we change the type, then we have to modify twice to get proper assembly UDA’s.
